03 Bradava repairs HELP NEEDED

My both cars are down for almost 3 weeks. So really need to get this one back on road.

1. Does anyone have pictures or diagram on how to put front brake pads with those clips? I think 2 go to each end of the bracket. And 1 goes to the bottom?

2. Replace passenger side...does the cv axle shaft use a o-ring toward the transmission differential (new part does not include) ? Also, does transmission differential use transmission oil or if I need to add some type of grease before put it together?

3. How hard to replace the tail light? (unclipping from inside etc. )

Btw, am getting a new Inner CV Axle Shaft Seal.

Thanks all!

This video may help you with the second question you have re: transmission oil: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgjmCZS01F4.

For the third question about the tail light, you may be able to use instructions from similar Blazer/Envoy models from early 2000s too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TZXGQPPh9Q.

You can thumb through the Service Manual here: https://www.slideshare.net/jdhnj/200...anual-76856421, but this is only an 80 page section of the entire manual.

The full service manual with complete diagrams (including brakes/lights/transmission sections, etc.) can be downloaded free here: https://www.aservicemanualpdf.com/do...-repair-manual.

Thanks for your reply and links!

Am not sure why the guy was changing the differential bearing. I have a new axle shaft and ordered a new differential seal a couple days ago. I thought the shaft ought to have an o-ring to push against the differential seal for oil tight. May do a homemade bring for that.

The tail light install simply straight forward...will know in few days once part is here.

Figured out the clips. In case anyone googling...you put 2 larger clips on each end of the bracket, then the smaller clip on the bottom/center of the caliper so that the top of the pads would be pushing against it (just little bit.) Overall, there would be 3 contact areas between a pad and 3 clips.
