Removal & Installation
Do not press the piston into the bore as performed on the front disc brakes. Due to the parking brake mechanism, the caliper piston must be turned into the bore using a special tool.
- Raise and support the vehicle safely.
- Remove the rear wheels.
- Release the parking brake and remove the cable bracket bolt.
- Remove the pin bolts and lift off the caliper body.
- Pull out the pad springs and then remove the pads and shims.
- Clean the piston end of the caliper body and the area around the pin holes. Be careful not to get oil on the rotor.
- Using the proper tool, carefully turn the piston clockwise back into the caliper body. Take care not to damage the piston boot.
- Coat the pad contact area on the mounting support with a silicone based grease.
- Install the pads, shims, and the pad springs. Always use new shims.
- Position the caliper body in the mounting support and tighten the pin bolts to 28-38 ft. lbs. (38-52 Nm).
- Mount the wheels, lower the vehicle, and bleed the system if necessary.
