I need to change my rear rotors on my chevy s-10 4x4 4.3 - I recently
changed the brake pads and know that a rotor change is in my immediate
future. I've done drum brakes before, but never rear disk brakes with the
internal parking brake. My Clymer isn't a whole lot of help...
I assume I need to change the inner parking brake pads when I put on new
rotors... do I need to change any hardware on the parking brake mechanism
(springs or such)...
also any tricks to pulling the rotor, when I changed the pads - I tried
to pull off the rotors without any success - no movement at all - but I will
be honest I only put about 50% of what I would normally put out in effort to
remove it - I tried using a hammer to strike the drum part of the rotor but
My plan in removing the rotors is to pick up a can of penetrating oil -
and perhaps a large pulley puller to see if I can pull it that way...
Any help at all will be greatly appreciated... thanks ~dave
