Hi db2010,

Here are the procedures.

FRONT BRAKE CALIPER
Removal
Raise and support vehicle. Remove wheel and tire assembly. Disconnect brakeline from caliper. Plug brakeline to prevent fluid spillage. Remove caliper mounting bolts or slide pins if necessary. Remove caliper from torque plate.

NOTE:
Pushing piston into caliper bore forces fluid back into master cylinder reservoir. Remove reservoir cap when compressing piston.

Installation
Push piston into caliper bore, if necessary. DO NOT let piston dust boot wedge against edge of pads. To install, reverse removal procedure. Tighten bolts to specification. Check reservoir fluid level. Bleed system.
