Front brake pad replacement procedures are as follows: REMOVAL: Drain 2 / 3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder
Place a C-clamp around the outer pad and caliper; tighten the C-clamp until the piston is fully compressed in the caliper.
Remove pads

INSTALLATION: Clean and lubricate the sleeves and bushing with silicone lubricant and install them in the caliper.
Clip the retaining spring onto the inboard pad and install the pad in the caliper.
Install or connect the following: Outboard pad into the caliper
Caliper in position over the rotor and install the mounting bolts. Bend the tabs, on the outboard brake pad, over the caliper.
Wheel and tire assemblies

Refill the master cylinder and pump pedal to attain full brake pedal before Road-testing the vehicle.
