Default Braking problems....

Hallo all.
New at the forum and think this is right place to put it in..

I own a -89 Bonnie SSE and a did change the rear brakes same weaks ago.
And it was missing parts from it. Dont realy know how its work befor but there was more parts on the left side then the right
Did find the missing part but now i having trouble puting all parts on the right spot.

So my question is:: do anyone know where i can get a map over the hole braking system..
And the electric system. Always good to have

And if anyone know a good place to buy parts (over internet) to bonneville what would be sweet..


Over and out

Hi and Welcome to BC!

I don't have a diagram/picture for that year, so someone else will have to help you there, but I can offer a source for Bonneville or other GM parts.

www.gmpartsdirect.com

I looked up your '89 and they have basic brake components there. You should also be able to get many of these parts at your local parts stores, maybe for less $ and certainly quicker if they have them. GMPD is known for very slow shipping...we're talking weeks here. However, for many Bonneville parts it'* one of the few places we can get things.

Don't hesitate to use Google to help you find parts. Ebay is often another source, as long as you are careful and verify that what you're buying is what you need.

OK, here'* a good tutorial on Drum Brakes. Page two has a diagram naming all the parts.
