Removal & Installation
- Remove 1 / 2 of the brake fluid from the brake master cylinder reservoir. Properly dispose of the brake fluid.
- Raise and safely support the vehicle.
- Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
- Remove 2 disc brake caliper brake pin retainers. Do not remove the brake hose from the caliper.
- Lift the disc brake caliper off of the disc brake rotor using a rotating motion. Do not pry against the caliper piston. Prying may damage the piston or seals.
- Hang the disc brake caliper with a length of wire or equivalent to prevent damage to the brake hose.
- Remove the inner and outer disc brake pads and the anti-rattle clip.
- Inspect the disc brake rotor surfaces for grooves, cracks or glazing. Resurface or replace as required. If resurfacing, observe the minimum thickness specification.
- Retract the caliper piston fully into the caliper bore using a C-clamp and wood block or equivalent. This will allow room for the new disc brake pads.
- Install new inner and outer disc brake pads and the anti-rattle clip. Ensure that the disc brake pads are properly positioned and that the lining material is facing the rotor.
- Place the disc brake caliper over the rotor and install 2 disc brake caliper brake pin retainers. Tighten the brake pin retainers to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm).
- Install the wheel and tire assembly. Torque the lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm).
- Lower the vehicle.
- Pump the brake pedal to position the brake pads before attempting to move the vehicle.
- Check and fill the brake master cylinder reservoir, as required.
- Road-test the vehicle and check for proper brake system operation.
