REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle.
- Remove the rear wheel assembly and temporarily fasten the rotor disc with the hub nuts.
- Using a suitable brake line wrench disconnect the flexible hose from the brake tube and the brake caliper. Remove the clip from the flexible hose.
- Remove the 2 caliper retaining bolts from the torque plate. Lift up and remove the brake caliper. Remove the brake pad assembly.
- Installation is the reverse order of the removal procedure. Be sure to bleed the brake system after the job is complete.
- Place the caliper in a suitable holding fixture. Put a piece of cloth or an equivalent between the piston and cylinder.
- Apply compressed air through the bleeder hole in the caliper to remove the piston and cylinder boot from the piston.
Do not place your fingers in front of the piston when using the compressed air. It is best to have the piston forced out of the caliper into a hard plastic bucket in order to avoid injury.
- Remove the piston seal from the brake caliper.
- Apply lithium soap based glycol grease to all the moving parts in the caliper.
- Install the piston seal in the caliper.
- Install the piston and the cylinder boot in the cylinder.
- Install the pin boot into the sliding main pin side. Using a plastic bar, install the cylinder sliding bushing into the sliding sub pin side.
- Install the brake pad assemblies.
- Install the brake caliper to the rotor. Install and tighten the 2 sliding pins to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
- Connect the flexible hose to the cylinder and brake caliper. Install the brake hose clip and make sure the hose is not twisted. Bleed the brake system.
- Install the wheel assembles and lower the vehicle. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder and add as necessary. Be sure to pump the brake pedal a few times before road testing the vehicle.
