REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Raise and support the front end on jackstands.
- Disconnect the handbrake cable.
- Disconnect the brake line from the caliper.
- Unbolt and remove the caliper.
- Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten the caliper bolts to 50 ft. lbs.
Special tools are required for this procedure.
- Remove the caliper.
- Place the caliper in a soft-jawed vise.
- Remove the dust cover.
- A tool can be made to unscrew the piston. Follow the accompanying illustration in making this tool.
- Install the tool and unscrew the piston. When it turns freely, remove the tool and apply compressed air at the brake line port. Put a soft cloth in front of the piston. Never try catching the piston with your fingers. Crunched fingers would result.
- Check the piston and bore. If any damage to either is noted, replace the unit.
- Remove the piston seal. Discard it.
- Clean all parts in methyl alcohol.
- Installation is the reverse of removal. Coat all parts with clean brake fluid prior to installation. Use your homemade tool to finish installing the piston. Always use a new piston seal and dust cover.
