- Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
- Remove a small amount of brake fluid from the reservoir using a suction pump.
- Remove the lower caliper pin bolt and pivot the caliper upward.
- Remove the pads, shims, and pad retainers.

- Install the pad retainers. Apply molybdenum brake grease to both surfaces of the shims and the back of the disc brake pads.
- Install the pads and shims. The wear retainer on the inboard pad faces down.
- Use a suitable tool to push caliper piston into its bore and enable the caliper to fit over the pads. Lubricate the piston boot with silicon grease. Avoid twisting the boot.
