60,000 mi. service questions
I have a 2015 2.0L ATS. It has about 58,000 miles on it, and the serpentine belt makes a chirping noise, so I was going to replace it and the tensioner pulley. I was also going to change the transmission fluid, brake fluid, brake pads, spark plugs, and rear diff oil.
Belt question: I searched and found a bunch of stuff for the CTS, SRX, etc, but not the ATS. Is there anything special to know? I've changed belts before, and it should be fairly easy because this is a RWD vehicle as the belt is facing front, but this is also the nicest car I've had and I don't want to screw anything up.
Transmission fluid question: Regarding the transmission fluid, again, I've done this many times on other cars, even dropped pans and changed filters, but all I've found says to just drain and refill this car. Couldn't be any simpler than that. Is there anything special to know about doing this on this car?
Brake pad questions: This is a two part question...(1) which pads and (2) are the rear pistons a pain to get back in, or are they straight forward screw type? I plan on going with OEM AC Delco pads, but I've found several that fit my car and can't narrow down a single part number. I found part # 22799077 for cars without heavy duty brakes or performance brakes. I did not get this car with any options, so I would assume I don't have performance brakes. Since the front rotors say Cadillac, I'm assuming these aren't relabeled Brembos. Amazon says these are for the JE5 code, but I cannot find out what that code means.
I have also found part # 171-1107 for code JE2, which appear to be Brembo pads for the performance brakes. Lastly, I've found 171-1113, which Amazon says fits both JE2 and JE5. Any help here would be much appreciated!
I intend to stick with AC Delco parts unless there is clearly a better alternative, like with brake pads. But the OEM stuff has performed very well for the past 58,000 miles, so I'm not in a rush to switch.

Re: 60,000 mi. service questions
JE5 is the standard/non-Brembo caliper setup, and J55 is the Brembo calipers. If your front calipers have a small Brembo logo under the Cadillac script, or if you look at the RPO plaque in the trunk (under carpet up toward front of trunk on passenger side) and you see code J55 listed, then you have Brembo brakes. I thought all 2.0T's came with Brembo's but I could be wrong.
I plan to drain and fill my transmission, but I have a manual. Might be different for autos, have you tried searching the site for answers to your questions? I'm sure this has been discussed before and you might find exactly what you need to know.
