Removal & Installation



  1. Empty the master cylinder reservoir until it is half full.
  2.  
  3. Raise and support the vehicle.
  4.  
  5. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  6.  
  7. Install and firmly hand tighten 2 wheel nuts to opposite wheel studs in order to retain the rotor to the hub.
  8.  
  9. Remove the brake caliper lower guide pin bolt.
  10.  
  11. Without disconnecting the hydraulic brake flexible hose, pivot the caliper upward and secure the caliper with heavy mechanics wire, or equivalent.
  12.  
  13. Remove the brake pads from the caliper mounting bracket.
  14.  
  15. Push the disc brake caliper piston into the caliper bore using an old inner disc brake pad and a disc brake piston installation tool.
  16.  
  17. Remove the brake pad retainers from the caliper bracket.
  18.  
  19. Thoroughly clean the brake pad hardware mating surfaces of the caliper bracket, of any debris and corrosion.
  20.  
  21. Inspect the brake caliper guide pins for freedom of movement, and inspect the condition of the guide pin boots.
  22.  

To install:

  1. Make sure the brake pad hardware mating surfaces are clean.
  2.  
  3. Install the brake pad retainers to the brake caliper bracket.
    NOTE
    The wear sensor equipped disc brake pad must be mounted inboard of the rotor with the leading edge of the sensor facing the brake rotor during forward wheel rotation, or at the top of the pad when installed in vehicle position.

  4.  
  5. Install the brake pads to the caliper bracket.
  6.  
  7. Remove the support, and rotate the brake caliper into position over the disc brake pads and to the caliper mounting bracket.
  8.  
  9. Install the lower brake caliper guide pin bolt. Tighten to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm).
  10.  
  11. Remove the wheel nuts retaining the brake rotor to the hub.
  12.  
  13. Install the tire and wheel assembly. Lower the vehicle.
  14.  
  15. With the engine OFF, gradually apply the brake pedal to approximately  2 / 3 of its travel distance.
  16.  
  17. Slowly release the brake pedal.
  18.  
  19. Wait 15 seconds, then repeat the last 2 steps until a firm brake pedal is obtained
  20.  
  21. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the proper level.
