you have to take the wheel off first of all.Then you will see,bolted on to the axle,right over top the brake rotor is the brake caliper,fastened by two bolts that you remove,causing the whole caliper to come loose.next u will see two more bolts of close to the same size holding the brake slider in place.remove them.now u can remove the pads from the slider.before putting the new pads in the slider, take two c-clamps and push both plungers back as far as they go.now,put the new pads in place,bolt the slider onto the caliper,bolt the caliper to the axle mount,and put the wheel back on.

Look at the pads and measure the thickness. The minimum allowed thickness for the brakes pads is 2 mm. Replace if they are worn to this point. You will have to remove the wheel to measure the pads.

You didn't mention what year the S10 is but, you can probably remove the 2 small screws that hold the lens to the housing and you will have access to the bulbs.

Defective or misadjusted, brake light switch.

Very likely the brake pad warning strip. It's a device deliberately set into the brake pads of many GM vehicles that gives you an audible notification that the brake pads are almost worn out.

The brake light switch located above the brake pedal is broken or out of adjustment.

There are a number of things that you can have done wrong. Get a manual on your car from the parts store and it will tell you how it is supposed to work.

Remove wheel, remove the bolt holding brake hose to the caliper, remove the two pins that hold the caliper to the caliper bracket using a 3/8" allen wrench, remove caliper. Inspect brake pads and brake hose for damage, replace if necessary. Install new brake caliper in reverse order. Bleed system.

how do you change the brake pads on a 2003 S10 BLAZER To change the front pads you need to jack up blazer and pull off wheel.the brake caliper is held on by two hex head bolts.Remove these and gently pry the caliper up off the rotor.You will need a C- clamp to compress the piston back into the caliper ,so when you install the new pads ,the caliper will fit back over the rotor. put the two hex bolts back in ,and your done.
