Removal & Installation
- Remove two-thirds of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir using a siphon (or equivalent).
- Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle securely on jackstands.
- Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
- Position the C-clamp around the outer pad and caliper. Tighten the clamp until the piston bottoms in its bore.
- Remove the 2 mounting bolts, the caliper, and the caliper bracket.
- Lift the caliper and the caliper bracket, along with the brake pads, off of the rotor.
- Suspend the caliper and the caliper bracket with a wire in order to prevent damage to the brake hose. Do not allow the brake components to hang from the flexible brake hoses. Damage to the brake hoses could result.
- Inspect the brake rotor for thickness variation. The maximum rotor thickness variation is 0.013 mm (0.0005 in).
- Inspect the brake rotor for lateral runout. The maximum rotor lateral runout is 0.15 mm (0.006 in).
- Inspect the brake rotor surface. Maximum scoring depth (rotor surface finish depth) is 0.38 mm (0.015 in).
- Remove the brake rotor from the wheel hub. If necessary, install two 8 mm bolts into the rotor. Tighten the bolts in order to force the rotor off of the wheel hub.
- Install the brake rotor to the hub.
- Place the caliper and the caliper bracket into position. Secure the caliper and the caliper bracket with the 2 caliper bracket mounting bolts and tighten to 61.5 ft. lbs. (85 Nm).
- Install the tire and wheel assembly.
- Lower the vehicle.
- Fill the master cylinder reservoir.
- Start the engine.
- Press the brake pedal several times in order to position the caliper piston.
