How to Install the Rear Brake Pad on your Oldsmobile Aurora

23

The rear discs brakes on the Oldsmobile Aurora include a parking-brake-actuated caliper. This caliper requires a special tool kit to compress the caliper piston inward, but many auto parts stores carry them and rent them inexpensively if necessary. When replacing the rear brake pads, the caliper pistons must be compressed in order to make room for the thicker replacement pads or the calipers will not be able to fit back onto the brake pads and rear discs (rotors).

Tools Used: Tools, Wheel wedge blocks, Brake fluid baster, Tire nut wrench, Hand wrench set, Standard screwdriver, Caliper piston reset tool kit, Replacement brake pads and pad clips set, Silicone brake compound, Foot-pound torque ratchet and socket set, Brake fluid
