Pretty good summary on the Autozone site - http://www.autozone.com/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/0f/47/f7/0900823d800f47f7/repairInfoPages.htm Briefly, 1. Jack up the car - remove the front wheel 2. From the back side of the caliper, remove the two allen-head bolts that hold the caliper on. 3. Compress the piston enough to give slack enough to lift the caliper off the disk. 4. Remove the old pads from the caliper 5. Use a large C clamp to compress the caliper piston fully 6. Insert the new pads in the caliper 7. Place the caliper back in position on the disk 8. Fasten the caliper down with the two allen-head bolts 9. Reinstall the wheel 10. Repeat on the other side. 11. Pump the brakes a few times at the beginning of your test drive
Most likely because of a problem with the ABS system, which could be expensive to fix. It could also be caused by low brake fluid.
The master cylinder contains the reservoir for the brake fluid. This is where you would add it on an 1990 Cutlass Supreme.
FRONT OR REAR ?
It's less than 2 hours work - depends on local labour cost.
under the steering column above the brake pedal
Replacing the brake pads on your 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass is quite easy. Remove the brake pad Springs and caliper. The brake pads will come off. Reverse the process to install the new brake pads
It's on top of the brake pedal under the dash.
The 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass brake rotors will cost approximately $40 per wheel. The rotors can be as cheap as $25 at some discount auto-parts stores.
Could be a few causes of that symptom, but most likely air in the brake lines or moisture in the brake fluid. Start by replacing the brake fluid in the reservoir and bleeding the brakes.
be more specific, bleed, what kind, or crossreferences of other models..
yes it has them
The brake light switch must be broken or out of adjustment. The switch is located above the brake pedal. what if it don't cut off
One of two things. Either the brake light switch behind the brake pedal. Or try wiggling or rotating your turn signal stalk in a circle motion. If the brake lights work when the turn signal stalk is wiggled then you need to replace the turn signal stalk.
Unbolt the master cylinder and remove the large vacuum hose. Remove the 4 nuts that attach it to the firewall and it slides right off. It's a pretty simple job.
The brake pads on an Olds Sierra are a wearable part. When replacing brakes it is better to change both fronts or both rears at the same time.
Just tell the parts store what type of car you have and they will be able to get you the right pads.
Most likely brake fluid. Check the master cylinder level.
Pull the tires off and take the brake calipers off and the rotors will pull off.
The minimum thickness specs are stamped into the rotors.
Changing brakes is a simple task. Lift the car, remove the wheel, remove the brake shoe, replace the pad, replace the shoe, replace the wheel and lower the car.
Remove lower caliper bolt (actually the upper one is a pin), lift the caliper, replace pads. The clips and the bracket might however need some cleaning.
The knuckle bolts on the brake caliper bracket for a 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass can be a problem to get loose because of rust and dirt buildup. A bolt loosening spray, like Liquid Wrench, can help free the bolt.
Remove wheels Re-install 2 lug nuts to hold rotor in place Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor Use a "C" clamp to fully retract piston into caliper body Replace inner and outer pads Re-install caliper PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SET PADS AGAINST ROTOR PRIOR TO MOVING VEHICLE
Replace flasher(S) under dashboard located near brake and gas pedal areas of car They are round /cylindrical style and pull like a regular home extension cord.Turn signal lights on and listen for click noise .replace bad one or both.Very inexpensive
