The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

bad calipers change them yesterday not tomorrow

you will get better results if you change both sides at same time. when changing calipers you can buy a set of balanced and calbrated calipers. this means that both calipers are matched and will perform evenly on both brakes.

You will need the tool to retract the calipers. The piston in the rear calipers have to be turned clockwise as you compress them back in.

This will greatly depend on what kind of brakes you have and which parts you are trying to replace. Do you have disc or drum brakes? If you have disc brakes, do you want to replace the calipers, pads, or rotors? If you have drum brakes, do you want to replace the drum, or the shoes?

Remove the wheel, the calipers and the rotors, reverse procedure with new rotors.

Be sure to change both front brake hoses. I didn't and my calipers would lock up.

My olds has 4 wheel disc brakes, and I had to buy a kit to change the rear pads. I'm not 100% sure about the pontiac, but Most GM rear calipers actually Screw back, unlike the front calipers, which merely push straight back. I got the kit at harbor frieght for around $40.

not unless you want to change the rotors and calipers and a bunch of other stuff

The front brakes on the Windstar are disc brakes. The rear brakes are drum type. You need to know exactly which parts need to be changed and why. If it is just the pads its pretty easy to do. But if the rotors are bad too, you will need to remove the calipers to access them then re-install the calipers with new pads. If you are not sure what you are doing seek advice from a mechanic

There are a lot of reasons. And of them is you have to change brakes pads. Of course it can be something else but the car is too new to have major problems with it. PS: If you have "sticky" brakes you need to check brakes calipers as soon as possible.

The brakes on a 2007 Chevy Trailblazer are changed by jacking the vehicle up, supporting it on jack stands, and removing the wheels. The calipers can then be unbolted, old pads removed, and new pads installed.

true you do not need to remove the caliper to change the brakes. how evever they are removeable. you should be able to loosen one bolt on the caliper and flip it up to remove the pads.

If the emergency brake is on the calipers, you need a special tool to compress the caliper. This should be rentable from the parts store.

Push in. I've change my front pads several times and they compress straight in.

Lift the car, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/calipers, and remove the brake pads. Next, put in new brake pads, replace the brake shoe/calipers, replace the tire and lower the car to the ground.

First thing is to check the fluid level and check for leaks. Also check the calipers and pads for proper installation and movement.

well i just changed the brakes on my Mazda mx3 what you do is take the 2 pins out of the calipers which is holding the pads in place and then you are able to remove the pads

It depends on how much of stuff you want to replace. Usually people replace only braking pads front and rear ones. Thus,you will need two pairs of front pads and two pairs of rear ones. If you want to change calipers also then you will need + two front calipers. You need to change one only in the case when it's sticky. You want to change breaking cylinders you will need + two cylinders for rear brakes. You need you change it only in the case if it's leaking.
