  1. Loosen the lug nuts on the wheel being worked on.
  2.  
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the appropriate wheels.
  4.  
  5. Remove the caliper guide pin bolts and remove the caliper/brake pad assembly. Do not disconnect the brake line. Support the caliper assembly by hanging it off of the steering knuckle or strut with a strong piece of wire to prevent strain on the brake hose.
  6.  
  7. Remove the rotor from the hub assembly by pulling straight off wheel mounting studs.
  8.  
  9. Inspect the brake rotor for the maximum allowable runout. Inspect the brake rotor for excessive lining deposits or corrosion. Resurface or replace the rotor if any of these conditions apply.
  10.  

To install:
  1. Clean both sides of the brake rotor with a brake cleaning solvent. Install the brake rotor onto the hub assembly.
  2.  
  3. Install the brake caliper. If installing a new rotor, compress the caliper piston back into the caliper bore to provide clearance for the rotor. It is good practice to remove some (one-third to one-half) of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir to avoid fluid overflow as the piston pushed fluid back through the brake lines into the master cylinder and reservoir.
  4.  
  5. Tighten the caliper guide pin bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Install the wheel and hand-tighten the lug nuts.
  8.  
  9. Lower the vehicle and tighten the lug nuts in a star pattern sequence to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm).
  10.  
  11. Pump the brakes several times to seat the brake pads against the brake rotors before attempting to move the vehicle.
  12.  
  13. Road test the vehicle to verify good brake performance.
