Removal & Installation
- Raise and safely support the vehicle.
- Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
- Remove the brake caliper flow bolt and position the hose aside.
- Discard the 2 copper washers.
- Remove the 2 brake caliper guide pin bolts.
- Remove the brake caliper.
If a leaking or damaged caliper piston boot is found, install a new brake caliper.
WARNINGThe caliper guide pin boots must be seated correctly on the anchor plate or the guide pins may become contaminated.
Inspect the guide pin boots and make sure they are seated on the anchor plate correctly. The boot has a lip that fits under the edge of the anchor plate extension.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure, noting the following:
- During installation, make sure that the brake caliper hose is not twisted.
- Tighten the caliper guide pin bolts to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.). Make sure to install the longer/bigger bolt in the upper position.
- Use new copper washers, then tighten the brake caliper flow bolts to 25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.).
- Bleed the brake system, as outlined in the beginning of the Brake Section.
