You pretty much have to pull everything apart. You will have to take the axle nut off first before you taek teh wheel off. otherwise you won't be able to loosen it. You didn't say front or rear, so i'm sending the front, next time let us know. Here is the front, the rear is similar.....

Most guys won't answer your post because all it says is rear dust brake shields. I ncluded a pic showing the shield and where they are located. It should be pretty simple that everything ahs to be disassembled to get them off. That is why the pic is included. Obviously you need t take this to a pro so you can instill what you want done.

Sorry Kind of new at this. It is the brake dust shield located on the inside of the rear rotor. It seems as though I would need to pull the axl. The current rusted out shield is rubbing against the rotors making the most anoying sound

I will post a pic when I have the time, Also, I I was having some voltage issues, I would lose my volts when I would press the brakes, causing me to stall out at times. I did the test by disconnecting my battery and the vehicle stalled out, so I replaced the alternator, buying the proper amp one through GM. The problem is still active. When im not at high idle its some times stalls or comes close to it, I took it to GM and they said I just needed the right amp alt and its in and still is doing it. Any suggestions on what It may be, before I have to take it in to GM and pay an arm and a leg for something I could possibly fix myself. Thanks for your time!

I thought I gave you the correct icture for the brake setup in the rar or something similar. And yes it will neeed to be pulled all apart. I'll look again, but not right now as my eyes have been dialated and my sight isn't eh best lol. As far as the stalling inssue first thing I would try is some choke cleaner on the throttle plate on both sides and idle air control valve-the oblong hole. That may cure the problem you are having. If not clean all your grounds and battery terminals. The throttle plate is shown in a picture under tune up on this site. If this picture on teh first doesn't match your rear end get back with me and i'll get eht correct one. And yes due to us trying to answer on the computer, be as descriptive as you can including what size engine you have int eh vehicle the next time.
