How difficult is it to change pads and rotors on these vehicles? Any special tools or tips?
Brakes 2007 Acadi on 2007 GMC Acadia
I just changed the front pads. Its easy, especially if you've done pads before. No special tools, socket to get the caliper off and slide the old pads off and replace. took me less than 2 hours total.
The rotors have a screw holding them, keeping them from flopping around when the wheel is off. Its a torx, make sure you take it off. My rotors needed a lot of persuasion to come off. I used a rubber mallet and swung hard half a dozen times.
