If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think about your brakes until there’s a problem. But brake pads don’t last forever, and they need to be replaced periodically. You can usually tell when they need to be replaced because the brake pedal will feel softer than usual or the car will pull to one side when you brake.
If you’re not sure how to tell if your brake pads need replacing, consult your Silverado’s owner’s manual. The process for resetting the brake pad monitor is different for 2019 Silverado’s than it is for older models, so be sure to follow the instructions carefully.
- Park your vehicle in a safe and level location
- Apply the parking brake and chock the rear wheels to prevent the truck from rolling while you’re working
- Locate the fuse panel under the dash on the driver’s side of the truck and remove the fuse for “Brake Lights
- Disconnect the negative (-) battery cable to disable any power going to your truck while you’re working
- Remove the two bolts holding each caliper in place with a wrench or socket set, then pull the caliper off of the rotor
- Suspend each caliper from its respective brake line using a wire hanger or similar device to prevent damage to the lines while you work (see photo)
- Use a C-clamp or similar device to compress each piston back into its bore until it is flush with the surface of the caliper housing (see photo)
- Be sure not to damage any surfaces during this process as it may cause brake fluid leaks later on down the road With both pistons compressed, remove the old brake pads from their retaining clips inside the caliper housing and discard them properly
- Install the new brake pads into their retaining clips, making sure they are seated correctly
- Release the C-clamp or other compression device slowly to allow each piston to return to its original position within its bore
- Reattach each caliper assembly to its respective rotor using the bolts you removed earlier, then torque them down according to your truck’s specifications
- Reconnect the negative (-) battery cable and reinstall the “Brake Lights” fuse in the panel under the dash
