- Remove the hollow bolt connecting the brake hose to the disc brake caliper and plug the brake hose. Discard the 2 copper sealing washers.
- Remove the caliper locating pins and lift the caliper off the rotor using a rotating motion.
Retract the disc brake caliper piston fully in the piston bore, using an old brake pad or block of wood and a C-clamp.
NOTEMake sure the clip-on insulators are attached to the brake pads.
- Install the disc brake pads to the caliper. Make sure the brake pad insulators are correctly attached to the brake pad plate.

- Lubricate the locating pins and the inside of the insulators with silicone grease. Torque the locating pins to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm).
- Remove the plug and install the brake hose to the disc brake caliper. Use 2 new copper washers and torque the hollow bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (48 Nm).
- Bleed the brake system, filling the master cylinder as required.
