I was doing preventive maintenance on my ’01 Duramax the other day and came across an interesting problem with the brakes. I had intended to pull the rotors so I could clean the antilock toothed wheel and sensor, check the pads, inspect the calipers and just in general check things over. I removed the “pins” that hold the caliper in place, and pulled the caliper. Finally figured out how to get the pads out and was left with a “bracket” that holds the pads and calipers. Still could not get the rotors off. My question is: Do you simply remove the 18 MM bolts on the inside of the bracket and remove the bracket and then remove the rotors?
