REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 through 7
- Remove the cap, then siphon 2 / 3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir. Install the reservoir cap.
- Break the lug nuts loose, then raise and safely support the vehicle.
- Remove the wheel and tire assembly
- Remove the caliper from the vehicle, but do not disconnect the brake hose. Suspend the caliper from the body of the car with a length of wire. Do not allow the caliper to hang by its brake fluid hose.
- Remove the outer brake pad, using a prytool to disengage the clips on the pad from the holes in the caliper housing.
- Remove the inner brake pad from the caliper.
- Use a clean, lint free cloth to wipe the outside surface of the caliper piston boot with denatured alcohol.
- Push the caliper piston into the caliper bore using a large C-clamp placed on the housing and inside the piston well. Tighten the clamp slowly to press the caliper piston into the housing bore. Remove the clamp.
