How to Replace Emergency Brakes on Pontiac Grand Prix

49

The original purpose of emergency brakes was to stop your vehicle in an emergency. Fortunately, the brakes on a Pontiac Grand Prix rarely fail, and the emergency brakes are most commonly used to keep the vehicle from moving while parked. The most likely type of failure for emergency brakes is when the brake cable rusts and seizes after it’s not used for a long time.

Tools Used: Tools, Brake grease, Emergency brakes kit, Mechanics wire (disc brakes), Socket wrench set, Thread-locking compound, Tool J-38400 (drum brakes), Torque wrench
