Tatiana Jenkins: this was my first time working on any auto repair and also i was working mostly alone, but following your video I was able to save about 160 dollars by buying the parts and replacing my brakes and rotors myself. Thanks for this video, made the task very easy to understand and a lot less intimidating!
Mark McKeough: I can't find the video for replacing the backing plate you mentioned in this video. Do you have a link?
Edward Sian: thanks for the video,it was a lot of help,but I`m having trouble with the inside pads will not fit back into the guides, all four wheels do you have any sugestions how to get them in?
Jason Welch: Thanks bud
peppyhappiness: Hey Mike. Scott here, using my wife's account. Thanks for the reply. Wanted to correct my last post. It was 10mm holes in the rotors. I didn't have the right thread though. Needed a more coarse thread. I'd recommend somebody bring the new rotor to hardware store to be sure to test/get the right bolts before buying them and starting project. I ended up only having one rotor that was stuck and needed the bolts. The rest came off fine. I was not able to hammer the stuck one loose with a 2 lb hammer.
Concerning the torque specs, on my 07, it recommended 148 ft. lbs on the rear brackets in my Haynes manual. I used the 90 you suggest in the video, with a little loc tite. That's what they're at. I don't know why the big difference. The front they recommend 110 ft. lbs. I put them just over 100 with no loc tite. Also, the smaller ones for the caliper pistons, it recommends 31 in the front and 23 in back. FWIW.
I just finished my last front one an hour ago. I've done brakes before but this video was a great refresher. Very helpful. Thanks!
1A Auto Parts: @Jenny Vesely Thanks for watching. Sometimes these rotors can be a bear to get off, once everything has been removed and you're trying to get the rotor off, usually you can break them free with a couple of good blows with a 2-3 LB sledge hammer. A regular hammer usually doesn't do the trick. Hope this helps out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Jenny Vesely: I bought the M10 bolts in the parts list for this video and tore into my rear brakes this evening. Sure enough, rotors were fused on. Parking brake was off. Used PB blaster. Couldn't hammer it off. Go to use the pre-purchased bolts listed in this video and they're too big!! My 07 apparently needs 8 mm bolts! Who knew it would be necessary to change that dimension on later models!? Another 1 hr job turns into not done with vehicle sitting on the stands till tomorrow afternoon.
Eric cortez: couldnt have shown brake work any better than this video. thanks
heresnater: Thank you for your videos. They are very helpful. Do you recommend getting your rotors turned every time you replace the pads?
Rey Rodriguez: excellent work thank you so much i have chevy trailblazer 2002 now
1A Auto Parts: If it's on a 02-05 Trail Blazer this video will show you how to change the brake pads and rotors. We also carry replacement brake pad and rotor kits on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Fred Leona: Do you have a video showing how to do a complete rear brake job on this? Including rotor and parking brake shoes?
1A Auto Parts: You will want to get that checked out. That area is where the torque converter is located. Not having that looked at could possibly cause more damage in the long run.
1A Auto Parts: This video is going to be very similar to the suburban and how to remove the rotors and replace them.
Lonnie Moreno: I have a Chevy Suburban 2001 back disc brakes, Do I replace then like I do the fronts or does the brake cable have to be released?
Jeff Robinson: Thank you, these vids are awesome for those who prefer to spend their money wisely.
1A Auto Parts: HI Matt, Not typically unless they are rotted out. Then they should be replaced.
Matt Setzer: Do you need a new backing plate to complete the job ?
1A Auto Parts: You may need different size sockets that what's shown in the video of the earlier model. It may be fairly similar to the one shown in the video.
deh21hotmailcom: I have 08 model what is different. Any special tools
