Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual: Brake Rotor R&R

Front

Removal

Caution: Support the brake caliper with heavy mechanic wire, or equivalent, whenever it is separated from its mount and the hydraulic flexible brake hose is still connected. Failure to support the caliper in this manner will cause the flexible brake hose to bear the weight of the caliper, which may cause damage to the brake hose and in turn may cause a brake fluid leak.
1. Raise and support the vehicle.
2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
3. Remove the brake caliper bracket bolts (1), Fig. 1.
4. Without disconnecting the brake caliper hose, remove the brake caliper and bracket assembly and support with heavy mechanics wire or equivalent.
5. If installing the original brake rotor, mark the relationship of the rotor to the wheel hub.
6. Remove the brake rotor screw (1) and the brake rotor, Fig. 2.
7. If the brake rotor is to be machined, check the thickness variation measurement.

Installation

If reusing the caliper bracket bolts the threads of the caliper bracket bolts and the threads of the knuckle mounting holes must be free of residue and debris prior to application of threadlocker in order to ensure proper adhesion and fastener retention.
1. If installing a new brake rotor, clean the friction surfaces of the brake rotor with denatured alcohol.
2. Using the CH-41450-A Wheel Hub Resurfacing Kit, thoroughly clean any rust or corrosion from the mating surface of the hub/axle flange.
3. Using the CH-41013 Rotor Resurfacing Kit, thoroughly clean any rust or corrosion from the mating surface of the rotor to the hub/axle flange.
4. If installing the original brake rotor, align the rotor to the wheel hub as noted during removal.
5. Install the brake rotor screw and torque to 89 inch lbs.
6. Position the brake caliper and bracket assembly to the vehicle.
7. Prepare the bolts and the threaded holes for assembly, noting following:
  a. Thoroughly clean the residue from the bolt threads by using denatured alcohol or equivalent and allow to dry.
  b. Thoroughly clean the residue from the threaded holes with denatured alcohol or equivalent and allow to dry.
  c. Apply threadlocker GM part No. 12345493, or equivalent to 2/3 of the threaded length of the lower caliper bracket bolts.
  d. Ensure there are no gaps in the threadlocker along the length of the filled area of the bolts.
  e. Allow the threadlocker to cure approximately 10 minutes before installation.
8. Install the brake caliper bracket bolts and torque to 89 inch lbs.
9. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

6. Remove the brake rotor screw (1) and the brake rotor, Fig. 4.
7. If the brake rotor is difficult to remove, remove the park brake shoe adjuster access plug on the face of the brake rotor to gain access to the park brake adjuster. Loosen the park brake shoe adjuster.
8. If the brake rotor is to be machined, check the thickness variation measurement.

8. Install the brake caliper bracket bolts and torque to 89 ft. lbs.
9. If necessary, adjust the park brake.
10. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
