Removal & Installation



  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2.  
  3. Remove 1 / 2 of the brake fluid from the brake master cylinder reservoir. Properly dispose of the brake fluid.
  4.  
  5. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  6.  
  7. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  8.  
  9. Install a large C-clamp over the rear of the caliper and against the outer brake pad.
  10.  
  11. Tighten the clamp until the caliper piston is compressed into the caliper bore enough to clear the rotor.
  12.  
  13. Remove the C-clamp.
  14.  
  15. Remove the lower brake pin retainer bolt.
  16.  
  17. Pivot the caliper upward away from the rotor.
  18.  
  19. Hang the disc brake caliper with a length of wire or equivalent to prevent damage to the brake hose.
  20.  
  21. Remove the inner and outer disc brake pads and the retainers.
  22.  
  23. Inspect the disc brake rotor surfaces for grooves, cracks or glazing. Resurface or replace as required. If resurfacing, observe the minimum thickness specification.
  24.  

To install:

  1. Inspect the guide pin boots for tears or cuts and replace as needed.
  2.  
  3. Seat the guide pin boot into the guide pin retaining seat.
  4.  
  5. Clean the guide pin bolt threads, then apply Threadlock to two-thirds of the lower guide pin bolt threads and allow it 10 minutes to dry.
  6.  
  7. Apply a thin coat of high temperature brake lubricant to the guide bolt.
  8.  
  9. Retract the caliper piston fully into the caliper bore using a C-clamp and wood block or equivalent. This will allow room for the new disc brake pads.
  10.  
  11. Install new inner and outer disc brake pads and the retainers. Ensure that the disc brake pads are properly positioned and that the lining material is facing the rotor.
  12.  
  13. Ensure that the disc brake pads are properly positioned and that the lining material is facing the rotor.
  14.  
  15. Place the disc brake caliper over the rotor and tighten the brake pin retainer bolts-to-guide pin bolts to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm) for front brakes, or 44 ft. lbs. (60 Nm) for rear brakes.
  16.  
  17. Install the wheel and tire assembly. Torque the lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm).
  18.  
  19. Lower the vehicle.
  20.  
  21. Pump the brake pedal to position the brake pads before attempting to move the vehicle.
  22.  
  23. Check and fill the brake master cylinder reservoir, as required.
  24.  
  25. Road-test the vehicle and check for proper brake system operation.
  26.
