Remove the 2 brake caliper anchor plate bolts and position the brake caliper and anchor plate assembly aside.
Mark a wheel stud and mark the corresponding brake disc wheel stud hole. This minimizes front brake disc run-out during reassembly. NOTE
If the brake disc cannot be removed easily, apply rust penetrant on the brake disc-to-hub mating surfaces.
Remove the brake disc.
If machining is necessary, use a hub-mounted brake lathe to machine the front brake disc.
Measure the front brake disc and resurface as necessary. Install a new front brake disc if the disc thickness is beyond specifications.
Clean any rust or debris from the brake disc and wheel hub. Use parts cleaner to clean the front brake disc and hub surfaces.
Apply a thin coat of anti-seize to the hub flange.
Install the brake disc, aligning the marks on the disc and the wheel stud. NOTE
Tighten the bottom locator pin caliper bolt before tightening the top guide pin caliper bolt.
Position the brake caliper and brake caliper anchor plate assembly and install the 2 bolts. Tighten to 155 ft. Lbs. (210 Nm).
WARNING
Do not allow the brake caliper to hang from the brake flexible hose. Use a suitable tool and support the brake caliper.
