Did this video help you?

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

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?

heresnater: Thank you for your videos. They are very helpful. Do you recommend getting your rotors turned every time you replace the pads?

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!

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

Rey Rodriguez: excellent work thank you so much i have chevy trailblazer 2002 now

eruizh0128: Excellent video thank you so much I have Chevy trailblazer 2004 now, I know,. (I have questions is a noise under truck close trany when star the engine and stop after 1o 2 minutes ) is a Buick Rainer 2005 my wife truck you know idea how's tha?

onenikkione: really, really appreciated the vids...helped out alot

deh21hotmailcom: I have 08 model what is different. Any special tools

1A Auto Parts: @blam7 You would need to find the correct size screw to get the caliper off first.

1A Auto Parts: This video is going to be very similar to the suburban and how to remove the rotors and replace them.

1A Auto Parts: I would replace them in pairs. That way you brakes will have an even braking surface to grab. We carry some great brake pad and rotor kits for all kinds of vehicles on our website 1aauto.com

19631retro1: thanks a lot... just did the same job on my trailblazer...very helpful video!

jusbkool: Great video. One question. I always loosen the cap on the brake fluid reservoir before using the c-clamp to push the caliper piston back into place making it easier for the fluid to flow back. Your thoughts?

1A Auto Parts: They should be fine once you torque them down right.

XxClemsonTigersXx: is this the same for a 2001 silverado pretty much?

TryAgain2167: What kind of disk brakes have those extra holes seen at 5:47 with the extra bolts you used to push the hub off? I have never seen that and I'm wondering why my silverado doesn't have them

Jeff Robinson: Thank you, these vids are awesome for those who prefer to spend their money wisely.

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.

baycityblues1976: Excellent video. I know this will help me as a do it yourself-er! One question, I had someone tell me you needed to bleed the line of brake fluid when you do a brake job but I have seen many videos where that is not done. Do you have to bleed the line when doing a break job or is it unnecessary??

Shaun McNamara: What are your thoughts on lock-tite for the bolts? Other videos are instructed to put lock-tite on.

dcpd589: Thanx amillion everything went as shown. I had trouble with the 18mm bolts they must have been welded on, but liquid wrench took care of that.

1A Auto Parts: You may have brakes that aren't from the factory. If your truck doesn't have them, you could always hit the rotors from behind with a sledge hammer to free them up.

1A Auto Parts: You should be able to replace the rear disks as we show in this 02-05 Chevy Trailblazer repair video. There shouldn't be any suprises or we would have made you aware of them.

Shaun McNamara: For rear brake jobs, are their any special considerations for the emergency park brake?

Travis Irving: Are the Caliper bracket bolt torque specs the same for both front and back brakes (90 ft-lb)?

crime943: your vid r very helpful ... i changed a lot of stuff on my chevy blazer ... thx for ur vids

blam7: Can I use a rubber mallet to hit the disc brake to remove it if I can't find the right size screw?

castillotechit: I noticed you did not bleed the brake after you replaced the shoes? Is this step not necessary? I always bleed them and am wondering if I dont have to do it, it will save me some time.

TheJackhammer81: Very professional video. Everything went exactly as you demonstrated in your video. thank you for sharing.

1A Auto Parts: HI Matt, Not typically unless they are rotted out. Then they should be replaced.

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?

QQTrick1QQ: One thing you didn't mention is to clean the protective coating from the rotors with a brake cleaner.

Matt Setzer: Do you need a new backing plate to complete the job ?

chugger3333: Thnx for the help Mike, much appreciated.

1A Auto Parts: Removing the cap will allow the pressure from the fluid going back into the reservoir. That is definitely a good point and thank you for pointing it out! Have a great day.

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: @castillotechit You don't have to bleed them unless for some reason the brakes are really hard or soft after you change the pads. Most of the time, you don't have to.

1A Auto Parts: The may be. If you have a Chiltons or a Haynes manual it should be listed in there for you.

1A Auto Parts: You don't need to bleed the brakes unless they are rock hard or very spongy. Hope this helps you out.

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.

Shaun McNamara: If one rotor still looks good, but the other needs replacement, is it OK to just replace one, or should both be replaced?

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

Shaun McNamara: Would the given torque specs work for any vehicle? Or any Chev? I have a 2008 Suburban...where can I find the torque specs (for front and rear)? Great video. Did my first brake job yesterday!

1A Auto Parts: The torque specs may be different from vehicle to vehicle.

precipitate1978: Its also good to take the cap off of the master cylinder for back flow if you are doing all 4 brakes too
