  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2.  
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4.  
  5. Remove some of the brake fluid in the reservoir. This prevents the reservoir from overflowing when the caliper piston is retracted.
  6.  
  7. Using a large C-clamp, retract the piston into the caliper.
  8.  
  9. Loosen the caliper bolt(s) and lift the caliper out of the way. Suspend the caliper with safety wire.
  10.  

Don't stretch the brake hose.

  1. Remove the pads and anti-rattle clips from the carrier.
  2.  

To install:
  1. Install the new pads and clips on the carrier.
  2.  
  3. Position the caliper and tighten caliper bolts to 16-23 ft. lbs. (22-32 Nm).
  4.  
  5. Install the wheels.
  6.  
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8.  

Depress the brake pedal several times prior to driving the vehicle. This will extend the caliper piston and seat the brake pads.

See Figures 7 and 8

Fig. Fig. 8: To inspect brake pad thickness, look through the end of the caliper

The inner brake pads are equipped with metal wear indicators which act as warning devices to alert the driver to change the brake pads. When the brake pad wears to the minimum service limit, the indicator contacts the rotor and makes a noticeable "chirping'' noise while the wheels are turning. When you here this sound, it's time to replace the front pads.

To perform a visual inspection, do the following:

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2.  
  3. Remove the front wheels.
  4.  
  5. Check the brake lining thickness through the inspection window in the caliper with a 6 in. machinist's rule. After checking the brake lining thickness check the brake pads for oil deposits, and check the pad springs for wear and damage. Make replacements as necessary.
