Thanks for taking the time to do this write up.
I am thankful that rust is not a problem down here in Dixie.
Hard to imagine how the dealer could justify not repairing that under warranty.

Great job on documenting your experience! Unfortunately I just found your post after 8 hours of working on my 05 2500HD. SAME ISSUE with emergency brake on the passenger side! I did not know about the adjuster, I looked for one but did not see the hole for it. My rotors are awful and the pads did not wear right at all. The inside pads on both rear wheels look like a wavy potato chip! I have never seen that kinds of wear.
GM should be slapped around for the TORX caliper bolt as well.....DUMB!
Thanks again for posting this....at least now I know why I was cussing for several hours!

Well, few folks take the quality time you did to share such pain & suffering lol. I just spent 3 hrs and 3 torx heads trying to get after that stupid design. ('06 2500 Duramax, rear passenger caliper hung and destroyed inboard side of the rotor.)
Anyway, thanks much, and please remember to enjoy your Dad and his experience every chance you get. Good stuff....

Since the writing of this thread the ABS unit in this truck also took a crap at just 28,000 miles, the dealership did replace that which would have cost me $2,200 to replace myself.
I agree with the stupid design part, why they would put that between the leaf spring and backing plate is beyond me. And especially a torx head of all things, one of the easiest to strip out!
