    To install:

    1. Clean the caliper thoroughly; remove any rust from the lip of the rotor. Check the brake rotor for grooves or cracks. If any heavy scoring is present, the rotor must be replaced.
    2.  
    3. Install the pad retainers. Apply molybdenum brake grease to both surfaces of the shims and the back of the disc brake pads.
    4.  
    5. Install the pads and shims. The pad with the wear indicator goes in the inboard position.
    6.  
    7. Install the pad springs while holding the pads.
      NOTE
      Push in the caliper piston so the caliper will fit over the pads. This is most easily accomplished with a pad spreader or large C-clamp.

    8.  
    9. Install the caliper down into position and tighten the mounting bolt to 53 ft. lbs. (72 Nm).
    10.  
    11. Install the wheels.
    12.  
    13. Add brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir and install the cap.
    14.  
    15. Depress the brake pedal several times and make sure that the movement feels normal. The first brake pedal application may result in a very long pedal action due to the pistons being retracted. Always make several brake applications before starting the vehicle. Bleed the system if necessary.
