New Brake Pad & Rotor Kit from

Brake pads wear out over time, much like tires, and need replacing, on average, every 50,000 miles, with variations depending on driving habits and environment. Brake rotors may also need to be replaced if they are warped or grooved. Often, it’s safer and more cost effective to replace pads and rotors at the same time. Squealing or grinding noises, or wheel vibration are all symptoms of worn brakes. This video shows you how to install new, quality TRQ brake pads and rotors on your 2010-2016 Buick LaCrosse.

I really need more information than "remove this bolt". I need to know what size torque bolt is holding the rotor on. Thanks for everything else, though

does it matter if my Buick has an electronic ebrake? I was reading about how some cars with ebrakes have to be put into some type of brake service mode or risk damaging the system?

Thank you for posting these videos. They have helped me out a lot.
