Removal & Installation

Most disc brake pads are equipped with wear indicators. If a squealing noise occurs from the brakes while driving, check the pad wear indicator plate. If there is evidence of the indicator plate contacting the brake disc, the brake pad should be replaced.

  1. Remove 1 / 2 of the volume of brake fluid from the master cylinder to prevent overflow when the caliper piston is compressed.
  2.  
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4.  
  5. Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.
  6.  
  7. Remove the brake caliper without disconnecting the brake line. Support the caliper with a length of wire. Do not let the caliper hang from the brake hose.
    NOTE
    On some disc brake systems it is not necessary to remove the caliper when installing new brake pads. Remove the lower slide bolt and rotate the caliper upward to remove the pads.

  9. Remove the brake pads and shims. Inspect the brake rotor and machine or replace as necessary. Check the minimum thickness (specification is cast into the rotor) before machining.

To install:

  1. Use a suitable tool to push the caliper piston into its bore.
  2.  
  3. Apply a thin coat of grease to the rear face of the brake pad and install the shim. Install the brake pads.
  4.  
  5. Install the calipers. Lubricate the caliper bolts and boots. If equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm). If equipped with a 6-cylinder engine, tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 54 ft. lbs. (74 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Install the wheel and tire assemblies and lower the vehicle.
  8.  
  9. Apply the brakes several times to seat the pads before moving the vehicle. Check the fluid in the master cylinder and add as necessary.

Rear
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the rear wheels.
  2.  
  3. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper without disconnecting the brake fluid line. Support the caliper so it does not hang on the brake line.
  4.  
  5. Remove the brake pads and retaining clips from the caliper.
  6.  
  7. If equipped with caliper-activated parking brakes; use tool J-37617 or equivalent to rotate the piston clockwise until it retracts into the bore. Align the notches of the piston face so the centerline of the notches is perpendicular to the centerline of the mounting bosses.
  8.  

To install:

  1. Install the new brake pads and clips in the caliper and install the caliper in the mounting bracket.
  2.  
  3. Tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 12-17 ft. lbs. (16-24 Nm), or 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm) on vehicles with shoe-type parking brakes.
  4.  
  5. Install the rear wheels. Check the brake fluid level.
  6.  
  7. Pump the brake pedal until pressure is felt before moving the vehicle.
