After getting the tire off. There sould be only two bolts that hold on the brake caliper. They could be a special bolt on some years. It could be star bolts that need to have star bits to take em off. Autozone has them for around 6 bucks a set. T20 T30 T40 T50 etc.

I just changed the front brake pads on my 2003 Cavalier and the bolds were not the star bits but a 3/8" hex bit.

2001 Cavalier is also 3/8 hex. You'll need a socket type would take forever using an Allen wrench. Also make sure you use a pry bar or screwdriver to push back the brake caliper before removing the bolts...much easier that way.

The 2001 Chevy Cavalier parking brake has an adjustment bolt on the parking brake assembly. Turn the adjustment bolt to loosen or tighten the parking brake.

Changing the brake light relay switch on your 1999 Chevy Cavalier is quite easy. The brake light switch simply plugs in and out.
