Removal & Installation

1. Raise and support vehicle. Remove wheels. Remove caliper assembly, and suspend it using
wire. Install washers and nuts to hold rotor to hub. Attach dial indicator to caliper
mount.40" (10.0 mm) from disc outer edge. Check disc runout before removal. See FRONT
BRAKE DISC under TESTING & INSPECTION. See appropriate table under DISC BRAKE
SPECIFICATIONS.
2. Detach and remove two 6-mm disc retaining screws. Install two 8 x 1.25 x 12-mm bolts in
existing holes. To prevent warpage, alternately turn bolts 2 turns at a time until disc can be
removed from hub.
3. Clean disc of all rust, and inspect disc surfaces for cracks and grooves. Replace disc as
necessary. To install, reverse removal procedure. Tighten retaining screws. Bleed hydraulic
system, if necessary. See BLEEDING BRAKE SYSTEM.
NOTE: On-car brake lathe must be used to resurface front brake disc.
Also when and if you bleed it, only push the master 1/2 way down, or you will ruin the master! If you dont replace calipers, or dont open the system, you DO NOT need to bleed them!

Make sure the parking brake is released, also.
