Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.
The backing plate should come loose if you remove the 4 nuts/bolts but it will only come out a few inches, in order to remove it completely, you will have to remove the axle.
Did that answer your question? If so, kindly leave me a positive rating, so I get credit. After all, you have already made the deposit.
