If it's similar to the Quest, sold in the USA here's the proceedure.
FRONT BRAKE PADS

1. Raise and support front of vehicle. Remove wheel assembly. Remove upper and lower pin
bolts. Lift caliper body upward and remove from caliper.
2. Remove pad retainers, shims and brake pads. Note pad condition and location for proper
installation (if reusable). Minimum pad thickness is 0.08 in. (2.0 mm) for all models.
Installation

1. Clean area around piston boot and guide pins. Seat piston and install inner pad. Apply brake
grease to pad retainer points on caliper assembly. Install outer pad and shims.
2. Install pad retainers. Install caliper body into original position. Install upper and lower pin bolt.
Tighten bolts to specification, and depress brake pedal several times to seat pads. See
TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS.
FRONT BRAKE CALIPER

Raise and support front of vehicle. Remove wheel assembly. Disconnect and plug brakeline from
caliper. Remove caliper mounting bolts. Remove caliper assembly.

FRONT BRAKE ROTOR

Removal & Installation

Raise and support vehicle. Remove wheel assembly. Remove caliper, but DO NOT disconnect brake
hose. See FRONT BRAKE CALIPER. Wire caliper aside. Remove rotor from hub. For exploded
CAUTION: Clean brake pads with a vacuum dust collector to minimize the
hazard of airborne particles or other materials. When cylinder
body is open, do not depress brake pedal or caliper piston will
pop out. Be careful not to damage piston boot or get oil on rotor.
Suspend cylinder body with wire so as not to stretch brake hose.
Burnish the brake contact surfaces after refinishing or replacing
rotors, after replacing pads, or if a soft pedal occurs at very low
mileage. See BRAKE BURNISHING under ADJUSTMENTS.
