REMOVAL

NOTE:
Before proceeding, (Refer to 05 - Brakes - Warning) (Refer to 05 - Brakes - Caution) .

Raise and support the vehicle. (Refer to 04 - Vehicle Quick Reference/Hoisting - Standard Procedure)
NOTE:
Perform Step #2 through Step #5 on each side of the vehicle to complete pad set removal.

Remove the wheel mounting nuts (3), then the tire and wheel assembly (1).

CAUTION:
When removing or installing a caliper guide pin bolt, it is necessary to hold the guide pin stationary while turning the bolt. Hold the guide pin stationary using a wrench placed upon the pin's hex-shaped head.

Remove the two brake caliper guide pin bolts (2, 3).
Remove the disc brake caliper (4) from the disc brake adapter bracket (1) and hang it out of the way using wire or a bungee cord. Use care not to overextend the brake hose when doing this.

Remove the brake pads (4, 5) from the caliper adapter bracket (2).

INSTALLATION

NOTE:
Perform Step #1 through Step #5 on each side of the vehicle to complete pad set installation, then proceed to Step #6.

NOTE:
Make sure the pads with the audible wear indicator (if equipped) are installed in the inboard location on each side of the vehicle.

NOTE:
If the brake pads have a protective paper on the rear face of the brake pad plate, it must be removed before pad installation.

Place the brake pads (4, 5) in the abutment shims (3) clipped into the disc brake caliper adapter bracket (2) as shown. Place the pad with the wear indicator (if equipped) attached on the inboard side (2).
Completely retract the caliper piston back into the bore of the caliper.

CAUTION:
Use care when installing the caliper (4) onto the adapter bracket (1) to avoid damaging the boots.

Install the disc brake caliper over the brake pads on the brake caliper adapter bracket.

CAUTION:
When removing or installing a caliper guide pin bolt, it is necessary to hold the guide pin stationary while turning the bolt. Hold the guide pin stationary using a wrench placed upon the pin's hex-shaped head.

Align the caliper guide pin bolt holes with the adapter bracket. Install the upper (2) and lower (3) caliper guide pin bolts. Tighten the guide pin bolts to 35 N m (26 ft. lbs.).

Install tire and wheel assembly (1) (Refer to 22 - Tires and Wheels - Installation) . Install and tighten wheel mounting nuts (3) to 135 N m (100 ft. lbs.).
Lower the vehicle.
Pump the brake pedal several times before moving the vehicle to set the pads to the brake rotor.

Check and adjust the brake fluid level in the reservoir as necessary.
Road test the vehicle and make several stops to wear off any foreign material on the brakes and to seat the brake pads.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what happens.
