Hi ammier0416,

Removal (Rear)

1. Raise and support rear of vehicle. Remove wheels. Remove caliper shield (if equipped). Detach parking brake cable by removing clip mounting cable to caliper (if necessary). Pull out lock pin from caliper to cable attachment. Remove pin from caliper.

2. Detach caliper mounting bolts. Remove caliper from bracket. Remove brake pads. Using a vernier caliper, measure friction pad thickness. Service limit is.31" (8.0 mm).

Installation
1. Install pad guides in caliper bracket. Apply Molykote M77 compound to both sides of inner and outer pad shims. Install brake pads and shims. Rotate caliper piston clockwise in caliper (if necessary). Ensure cut-out in piston aligns with tab on inner pad.

2. Avoid twisting piston boot. If boot is twisted, back out and reposition boot. Install brake caliper and parking brake cable. Pump brake pedal several times to seat pads. Bleed brakes as necessary. Adjust parking brake.
