1 Jack up the car and place on stands. 2 Remove wheel 3 Take off the Master Cylinder cover. 4 With a flashlight look behind the rotor. Here you will find two bolt heads. These are what hold the Caliper to the Hub assembly. 5 Extract those same bolts.(BE CAREFUL NOT TO LET THE CALIPER HANG BY THE BRAKE LINE) 6 Slide off the Caliper. 7 Remove the outer pad. 8 Using a 6 inch C clamp run it into the inner pad and tighten gently until flush with the caliper. 9 Take out the inner pad. 10 Put in new inner pad. 11 Insert new outer pad. 12 Buff the rotor with some Emery cloth. 13 Reverse steps 6-1 14 Be careful at all times. When setting the new pads. 15 Drive the car around the block 10mph brake to stop , 20mph brake to stop , 30mph brake to stop 40mph brake to stop. Your done.

The master cylinder contains the reservoir for the brake fluid. This is where you would add it on an 1990 Cutlass Supreme.

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

Just tell the parts store what type of car you have and they will be able to get you the right pads.

Pull the tires off and take the brake calipers off and the rotors will pull off.

where is the brake light switch for 1996 Oldsmobile cutlas supreme

Seems silly.. take out the old one, and install the new one. Pull the carpet away from you in the trunk by your brake lights, and you'll see 3 screws with plastic wingbolt lookin things. Unscrew all of them, and you can pull the entire assembly out.

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.

what size torx for a 96 ford bronco?

It could be the brake fluid reservoir is low and is telling you that the brakes need attention.

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.

Above the brake petal. You have to take the cover off.

It's a white plastic thing right above the brake pedal. It has two wires that plug into it.

Look above the brake pedal on the rod that holds the pedal. There is a button that engages when you depress the pedal to activate the lights. Your parts store will have a replacement and can show you how it is attached.

Most likely brake fluid. Check the master cylinder level.

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.

If the cable is broken and parking/emergency brake is still ON, then they are rusted in place ! - Your emergency brake system needs urgent work.

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.

It's less than 2 hours work - depends on local labour cost.
