1aauto: 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?
1aauto: 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.
1aauto: 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?
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?
Jeff Robinson: Thank you, these vids are awesome for those who prefer to spend their money wisely.
1aauto: 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 ?
1aauto: 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
QQTrick1QQ: One thing you didn't mention is to clean the protective coating from the rotors with a brake cleaner.
1aauto: 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.
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
1aauto: You don't need to bleed the brakes unless they are rock hard or very spongy. Hope this helps you out.
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??
1aauto: 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.
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?
1aauto: They should be fine once you torque them down right.
Shaun McNamara: What are your thoughts on lock-tite for the bolts? Other videos are instructed to put lock-tite on.
1aauto: 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.
1aauto: The torque specs may be different from vehicle to vehicle.
1aauto: 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
Shaun McNamara: For rear brake jobs, are their any special considerations for the emergency park brake?
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?
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!
1aauto: The may be. If you have a Chiltons or a Haynes manual it should be listed in there for you.
Travis Irving: Are the Caliper bracket bolt torque specs the same for both front and back brakes (90 ft-lb)?
precipitate1978: Its also good to take the cap off of the master cylinder for back flow if you are doing all 4 brakes too
19631retro1: thanks a lot... just did the same job on my trailblazer...very helpful video!
1aauto: 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.
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.
1aauto: You would need to find the correct size screw to get the caliper off first.
blam7: Can I use a rubber mallet to hit the disc brake to remove it if I can't find the right size screw?
chugger3333: Thnx for the help Mike, much appreciated.
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.
onenikkione: really, really appreciated the vids...helped out alot
TheJackhammer81: Very professional video. Everything went exactly as you demonstrated in your video.

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