Tackled Brakes And Disc

5 posts in this topic

Easy job all you need is

14mm socket for the caliper

19mm socket for the rotor

a Philips head screwdriver to release the discs.

 

and these (cheaper options out there but for the price why not.)

perfect step by step tutorial (chevy aveo no difference in steps from Chevy Spark)

 

my car needed a new set of tires and alignment which set me back a bit but thats fine since my original plan was to have the dealer do the job so comes out to about the same

Ya..Very good price on that kit and people who are able to do that correctly can really save a bundle!..Brake job at a garage or dealer is mostly labor with a huge mark-up on parts. Nice job on finding that.

the ONLY issues i ran into were the bolts were super TIGHT. everything was done by hand tools and extra elbow grease

 

And removing the caliper was a bit of a hassle just because the dirt and gunk build up but other than that it was an easy job

2013 Spark. I stripped the phillips screws that hold on the rotors and had to drill them out. I hope this will be ok as I could not/did not replace them.
