1994-1995 Buick LeSabre Front Semi-Metallic Brake Pad & Rotor Kit

Part Details

  • Brake Pad Friction Material: Semi-Metallic

  • New

Hearing squeaking noises from the wheels? This may be the wear tabs on the brake shoes saying, "it is time for replacement." Aging brakes can also result in a pulsation from the brake pedal or long stopping distances. Brakes should be inspected every 10,000 miles. They may need frequent replacement such as every 20,000 miles if used in stop and go traffic. Brakes can last longer if the vehicle is used primarily for long highway trips.

Kit specifications:

  • Includes 2 front rotors & a front brake pad set
  • Fits Driver & Passenger Side Front
  • Semi-Metallic brake pads
  • Direct replacements

Frequently asked Questions:

  • How difficult is it to change pads and rotors?
ANSWER: Changing pads and rotors is NOT a difficult repair.
1. Jack up and properly support the vehicle.
2. Remove the wheel.
3. Remove the caliper mounting bolts. The caliper bolts are usually allen head bolts located at the inside upper corners of the calipers. After removing, clean these bolts with a wire brush and apply some grease to the head surfaces before reinstallation.
4. Remove the caliper by pulling up and forward. Remove the brake shoes from the caliper. Match the old shoes to the new shoes.
5. Use a large c-clamp to force the caliper piston back in to the caliper. Brake fluid may need to be removed from the fluid reservoir during this step. Be sure to align the clamp properly so as not to damage the piston. If you have multi-piston calipers use the old brake shoe to distribute the force of the clamp evenly.
6. Support the caliper. Do not stress the rubber line between the caliper and vehicle. Inspect this line, if it shows any sign of wear replace it.
7. Remove the rotor. The rotor on this vehicle pulls off the wheel hub. A rubber mallet can be carefully used to break the rotor free of the hub.
8. Reverse the procedure to reinstall the rotor, brake shoes, caliper and wheel. Be sure to torque all bolts to the proper specifications. Always do final tightening by hand do not use air impact tools.
9. Repeat for the opposite side.
10. IMPORTANT - Start the car and pump the brake pedal. It may take a few pumps before the calipers and shoes reseat properly on the rotor. Check the fluid again before operating.
  • My car has anti-lock (ABS) brakes does this make replacing rotors and pads harder?
ANSWER: NO, the ABS system does not make this repair more difficult. ABS controls the flow of the hydraulic brake fluid. A computer and valve tell the wheel brakes how to do their job but the function and design of the wheel portion of the brake system is not changed.
  • Can I damage my ABS system when replacing the rotors and pads?
ANSWER: NO, while it is possible it is very difficult to damage the ABS system. Caution should be used to not break any of the plastic connections. Even this is very difficult as these connections are in protected areas out of the way so that common road debris can not damage them.
  • How do I know if my brakes really need replacement?
Remove the wheel to inspect your brakes. Find any area where you can see between the rotor and the metal surface of the brake pad. New brake pads have about 1/4 inch to 3/8 of an inch of pad material. Pads measuring less than 3/32 of pad material need replacement. Check inner and outer pads on both sides as they can sometimes wear at different rates.
