Having problems with your Chevrolet Uplander ?
Replacing rear brake pads on a 2007 chevrolet uplander and cannot get the piston to move back in to install new pads over rotor
Hey; If the piston is seized, simply go to your local parts dealer, (or the dealership for lack of options--you'll pay triple what you will at a parts dealer) and buy a new caliper. They are now sold as a complete unit. Previously they were sold without the mounting bracket. The pad clips and brake line copper washers are usually included but check, and buy these if not included, you will need them. Cost in CDN currency is about 85.00 to 100.00, and you will save by giving them the old caliper 20 bucks oor so. They are quite simple to install two bolts from the mounting bracket at the vehicle mount, and removing/replacong the brake line. After installation and checking tightness of all bolts and the b/line. bleed the brakes 5-7 times each wheel i this order. 1-right rear; 2-left front; 3-left rear; 4-right front. Its a process, but worth doing. I always bleed all wheels even after working on only one area....better safe than sorry. Good luck. ;)
