how to change front brake pads on a 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS
go to youtube .com and put that question in search..
remove hubcap remove wheel bolts remove screw that holds rotor to shaft remove two bolts behind the calipers~ remove the spring clip that holds the pads against the assembly clean all surfaces with a small brush and rag assemble the new replacement pads put the spring clip in inspect the wear characteristics of the rotor should be even both sides....both wheels~ put a little of the blue fudgy grease on the back (to stop resonations) assemble the pads with the retaining clips line up the calipers....there should be at least 1/4 "float" so the whole assembly moves on the pins...be sure that it is not binding....there is a special lubricant for the slides...if needed torque to a medium hard (not hurting the threads)~ check the float to be sure the bolts are tightened~ put the wheel and the hubcap back on....see that was easy~!
