REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figure 1
- Remove and discard approximately 2 / 3 of the brake fluid from the rear master cylinder reservoir.
- Raise the car and remove the front wheels.
- Remove the retainer bolts and retainer(s).
- Using two pairs of pliers, grasp the outer ends of one of the pads and pull straight out. Push the two pistons into their bores using a flat metal bar and install a new disc pad. Repeat for the second pad.
- Install the retainer(s) and bolts.
- Replace the wheels, check the brake fluid level, check the brake pedal travel, and road-test the car.
See Figure 2
- Raise the vehicle on a hoist and remove the front wheels.
- Remove the lockwires from the two mounting bolts and lift the caliper away from the rotor.
- Remove the retaining clips with a screwdriver and slide the outboard pad and retaining pins out of the caliper. Remove the inboard pad.
- Slide the new inboard pad into the caliper so that the tabs are between the retaining clips and anchor plate and the backing plate lies flush against the piston.
- Insert the outboard pad retaining pins into the outboard pad and position them in the caliper.
Stabilizer, insulators, pad clips, and pins should always be replaced when the disc pads are replaced.
- Hold the retaining pins in place (one at a time) with a short drift pin or dowel and install the retaining clips.
- Slide the caliper assembly over the disc and align the mounting bolt holes.
- Install the lower bolt finger-tight. Install the upper bolt and torque to specification. Torque the lower bolt to specification. Safety-wire both bolts.
- Check the brake fluid level and pump the brake pedal to seat the linings against the disc. Replace the wheels and road-test the car.
