Removal & Installation
- Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
- Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1 / 2 full. Discard the removed fluid.
- Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle. Remove the front wheels.
Remove or disconnect the following:
Front brake caliper guide pin bolts
If necessary, compress the caliper piston into the bore using a C-clamp. Insert a suitable piece of wood between the C-clamp and caliper piston to protect the piston.
Outboard disc brake pad from the caliper by prying the brake pad retaining clip over the raised area on the caliper. Slide the brake pad down and off the caliper.
- Be sure the caliper piston has been completely retracted into the piston bore of the caliper assembly. This is required when installing the brake caliper equipped with new brake pads.
- If equipped, remove the protective paper from the noise suppression gaskets on the new disc brake pads.
Install or connect the following:
New inboard disc brake pad into the caliper piston by pressing the pad firmly into the cavity of the caliper piston. Be sure the new inboard brake pad is seated squarely against the face of the brake caliper piston.
- Check the fluid level in the master cylinder and add fluid as necessary. Road-test the vehicle.
