Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

Removal

  • Using a C-clamp, Fig. , push piston back into its bore.
  • Remove two mounting bolts and lift caliper away from disc.

Inspection

BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR 1996 GMC Jimmy AUTOMOBILES

Includes anti-lock brakes, disc, drum, power and hydraulic brake services diagnostics and procedures for domestic and imported 1996 GMC Jimmy cars and light trucks from 1990+.

Power Brake Units -> Bendix Brake Boosters -> General Service
Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

Certain general service procedures apply, regardless of whether the brakes are vacuum or hydraulically assisted. Only top quality, clean brake fluid should be used. More seals and valves are used with power brake systems than with ordinary brakes, so an inferior brake fluid will do much more damage. For the same reason, be sure all dirt is kept out of the system. Additionally, care must be taken not to mix the fluids of the booster hydraulic system and brake hydraulic system as the fluids are not compatible.

If the power unit fails, the brakes will still operate, as the conventio...

Disc Brakes -> Bendix Single Piston Sliding Caliper -> Precautions -> Brake Disc Service -> Brake Lines & Linings -> Brake Roughness -> General
Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

Brake Lines & Linings

Remove one of the front wheels and inspect the brake disc, caliper and linings.

Do not allow any oil or grease on the linings. It is recommended that all linings be replaced in sets when worn or damaged.

If the caliper is cracked or fluid leakage through the casting is evident, it must be replaced as a unit.

Brake Roughness

The most common cause of brake chatter on disc brakes is a variation in thickness of the disc. If roughness or vibration is encountered during highway operation or if pedal pumping is experienced at low speeds, the disc may have excessive thickne...

Drum Brakes -> Precautions
Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

When working on or around brake assemblies, care must be taken to prevent breathing asbestos dust, as many manufacturers incorporate asbestos fibers in the production of brake linings. During routine service operations, the amount of asbestos dust from brake lining wear is at a low level due to a chemical breakdown during use, and a few precautions will minimize exposure. Do not sand or grind brake linings unless suitable local exhaust ventilation equipment is used to prevent exces...

Drum Brakes -> General System Inspection -> Adjuster Mechanism -> Backing Plate -> Brake Drums -> Brake Linings & Springs -> Parking Brake Cable
Vehicle: 1996 GMC Jimmy 4.3 V6 GAS

Brake Drums

Any time the brake drums are removed for brake service, the braking surface diameter should be checked with a suitable brake drum micrometer at several points to determine if they are within the safe, oversize limit stamped on the brake drum outer surface. If the braking surface diameter exceeds specifications, the drum must be replaced. If the braking surface diameter is within specifications, drums should be cleaned and inspected for cracks, scores, deep grooves, taper, out-of-roundness and heat spotting. If drums are cracked or heat spotted, they must be ...
