1999 Chevrolet Tracker Q&A

1999 Chevrolet Tracker Question: Rear brakes

The rear brakse on my 1999 chevy tracker have like a large flange or disc covering most of the braks parts. Can this be removed, or is there a trick to doing it? Does anyone have a brake diagram for this year? Thanks all -

It sounds like the wheel hub (carries the wheel) it isn't removed doing a rear brake job. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online Perhaps try a public library or sometimes the parts manuals have good illustrations of the parts and components. -

Thanks for the info. Auto Zone doesn't have a repair manual for this piece of junk. I will never buy another Tracker again. No one has info on it unless you buy it, and being on SS money can't be spent for that. Thanks for the prompt answer. Much appreciated -
