How to Replace a Caliper on a Saturn VUE


The Saturn VUE comes standard with drum brakes on the rear wheels. This means only the front brakes have calipers, so you’ll only need to replace a maximum of two calipers at a time if needed. This does not reduce the importance of the proper procedure.

Tools Used: Tools, Saturn VUE caliper, Jack stand, Tire iron, Various wrenches, Replacement copper washers, Small rubber pieces, Transparent tube, C-clamp

Replace Caliper

Remove the front wheel and tire once the vehicle is securely raised. Make sure you’re using a jack stand suitable for a larger vehicle like the VUE. Disconnect the brake hose from the caliper and throw away the copper washers that were connected with the bolt.
