Removal & Installation
- Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
Isolate the master cylinder as follows:
- Use a brake pedal holding tool and depress the brake pedal past its first one inch of travel and hold it in this position. (This will keep brake fluid from draining from the master cylinder).
Remove or disconnect the following:
- If new pad were installed, completely retract the caliper piston back into piston bore of the caliper.
Lubricate both adapter caliper slide abutments with a liberal amount of Mopar® Multipurpose Lubricant, or an equivalent.
WARNINGBe careful when installing the caliper assembly onto adapter so the guide pin bushings and sleeves do not get damaged by the mounting bosses on adapter.
Starting with the lower end, carefully lower the caliper and brake shoes over the brake rotor and catch the caliper-s bottom edge behind the caliper slide abutment. Rotate the top of the caliper into mounting position on the adapter.
WARNINGBe very careful not to cross thread the caliper guide pin bolts when you are installing them!
Install or connect the following:
Caliper guide pin bolts, then carefully torque them to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm)
- Remove the brake pedal holding tool.
- Properly bleed the brake system.
- Reinstall the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
- Pump the brake pedal to seat the front brake pads before moving the vehicle.
- Road test the vehicle and check for proper operation.
