FRONT DISC BRAKE PADS
NOTE:On all models except S2000, an on-car brake lathe must be used to resurface front brake disc.

Removal
Raise and support front of vehicle. Remove wheels. Remove caliper bolt and brakeline bracket bolts. Pivot caliper aside. Remove pads and pad shim. Remove pad retainers (if equipped).
Using a vernier caliper, measure brake friction pad thickness. Measurement does not include pad backing thickness. Minimum brake pad thickness is.06" (1.6 mm).
NOTE:Replace brake pads in axle sets of 4 pads. Ensure grease, brake fluid and other contaminants DO NOT contact lining surface. Inspect and clean disc, and resurface it if necessary. See DISC BRAKE SPECIFICATIONS.

Installation
Lubricate sliding surfaces with high temperature silicone grease. Install pad retainers. Apply Molykote M77 compound to back of pads and both sides of pad shims.
Install inner and outer pad shims. Install brake pads. If reusing pads, always reinstall in original position. Ensure brake pad with pad wear indicator is installed inside. Loosen bleeder screw, and slowly push piston into caliper bore.
Tighten bleeder screw. Ensure brake fluid does not contaminate pads. Position caliper, and install and tighten lower guide pin or caliper bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. Depress brake pedal several times to seat pads. Bleed brakes as necessary. See BLEEDING BRAKE SYSTEM.
FRONT BRAKE CALIPER

NOTE:Front disc brake calipers are of same basic design. Only caliper-to-bracket attachments and anti-rattle springs or clips differ among models.

Removal
Raise and support front of vehicle. Remove wheels. Remove banjo bolt and copper washers connecting brakeline to caliper. Plug hydraulic line and caliper.
Detach caliper guide pins or bolts, and remove caliper. DO NOT damage splash guard on upper caliper bolt side (if equipped) during removal. Remove disc pads, pad retainers, upper and lower anti-rattle springs and shim.
Installation
To install, reverse removal procedure. Install NEW copper banjo bolt washers when installing brake flexhose. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. Bleed brake system. See BLEEDING BRAKE SYSTEM.
FRONT BRAKE DISC
Removal & Installation
NOTE:On all models except S2000, an on-car brake lathe must be used to resurface front brake disc.

Raise and support vehicle. Remove wheels. Remove caliper assembly, and suspend it using wire. See FRONT BRAKE CALIPER. Attach dial indicator to caliper mount.39" (10.0 mm) from disc outer edge. Check disc runout before removal. See appropriate table under DISC BRAKE SPECIFICATIONS.
Detach and remove two 6-mm disc retaining screws. Install two 8 x 1.25 x 12-mm bolts in existing holes. To prevent warpage, alternately turn bolts 2 turns at a time until disc can be removed from hub.
Clean disc of all rust, and inspect disc surfaces for cracks and grooves. Replace disc as necessary. To install, reverse removal procedure. Tighten retaining screws. Bleed hydraulic system (if necessary). See BLEEDING BRAKE SYSTEM.
