BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR Pontiac G8 AUTOMOBILES

Includes anti-lock brakes, disc, drum, power and hydraulic brake services diagnostics and procedures for domestic and imported Pontiac G8 cars and light trucks from 1990+.

Disc Brakes -> AC-Delco Single Piston Rear Disc Brake -> Description
Vehicle: 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP 6.2 V8 GAS

On all models except Grand Prix, the caliper assembly has a single bore and is mounted to the support bracket with two mounting bolt and sleeve assemblies, Fig. .
