Removal & Installation
- Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
- Raise and safely support the vehicle.

- Suspend the cylinder body with strong cord or wire, then remove the pad and shim from the torque member.
- Position the inner shim and shim cover onto the inner pad, and outer shim onto the outer pad.
- Push the caliper piston in so that the brake pad is firmly installed.
Position the cylinder body on the torque member.
NOTEUsing a disc brake piston tool, makes it easier to push in the piston.
CAUTIONBy pushing in the piston, brake fluid returns to the master cylinder reservoir tank. Watch the level of the surface of reservoir tank.
Reattach the pad retainer to the torque member.
CAUTIONWhen attaching the pad retainer, attach it firmly so that it does not float up higher than the torque member.
- Install the lower sliding pin bolt and tighten it to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
- Check the brake assembly for drag.
- Install the wheels.
