Inboard pad clip against the piston cavity and press the pad until the clip is seated making sure the pad backing plate is flush against the piston Outboard pad making sure the locating pins are positioned against the ramps. Before servicing the vehicle. Completely compress the caliper piston Install or connect the following: NOTE The outboard pads are side oriented. Check and adjust the brake system fluid level and road test the vehicle. 3. then lift the caliper with the pads away from the adapter abutment Brake pads by pushing (outboard) or pulling (inboard) from the caliper fingers and piston To install: 1. (23 Nm) Wheels Negative battery cable 5. Make sure the abutment shims are in place on both slide abutments.Rear  Brake  Pads   Removal & Installation 1. Rotate the lower end of the caliper into position Caliper guide pin bolts and tighten to 200 inch lbs. Brake caliper. Remove or disconnect the following: Negative battery cable Rear wheels Caliper guide pin bolts Caliper assembly from the brake adapter by rotating the bottom of the caliper away from the rotor. Staring with the upper end. position the caliper and shoes over the rotor and align the outboard pad upper edge with the caliper slide abutment.   2   . 2. Slide the pad onto the caliper and ensure the locating pins are squarely seated into the holes on the caliper and the pad is flush against the caliper fingers. Retract the caliper guide pins to clear the caliper adapter bosses. 4. refer to the Precautions section. 2. Make sure the spring clip is installed so it is positioned downwards when the caliper is installed.

Never push on piston directly as it may get damaged. Remove the caliper assembly from the brake adapter by first rotating bottom of caliper away from the rotor. it may be necessary to retract caliper piston in its bore a small amount in order to provide sufficient clearance between shoes and rotor to easily remove caliper from knuckle. thus retracting piston. then the tire and wheel assembly. Rear brake caliper and guide pin bolts 4. 2. Raise and support vehicle. Remove the two caliper guide pin bolts. NOTE In some cases.Rear  Brake  Disc  Rotor   Removal & Installation 1. by grasping rear of caliper and pulling outward working with guide pins. then lifting the caliper (with shoes) away from upper adapter abutment. Fig. This can usually be accomplished before guide pin bolts are removed. Remove the wheel mounting nuts.   3   . 3.

1. Make sure the abutment shims are in place on both slide abutments of the caliper adapter. Clean the rotor mounting face of the hub and bearing to remove any dirt or corrosion. 5. Starting with the upper end. 6. carefully position the caliper and brake pads over the brake rotor and align the outboard pad's   4   . 2. To install: NOTE Inspect the disc brake pads and parking brake shoes before installation. Retract the caliper guide pins to clear mounting bosses on the caliper adapter when installing caliper.Fig. To prevent the weight of the caliper from overextending and damaging the brake hose while the caliper is off mount. Remove any clips retaining the brake rotor to the wheel-mounting studs. Install the brake rotor over the studs on the hub and bearing. WARNING Use care when installing caliper assembly onto adapter so guide pin bushings and sleeves do not get damaged by mounting bosses on adapter. 3. 4. 7. Remove the brake rotor from the hub and bearing. Install the brake caliper in the opposite way it was removed. hang brake caliper from vehicle using wire or cord. Rear caliper removal 5.

lbs. 7. 8. (135 Nm). Lower vehicle. lbs. Road test vehicle and make several stops to wear off any foreign material on brakes and to seat brake pads.       5   . 9.upper edge with the caliper slide abutment. 11. 10. Check and adjust brake fluid level as necessary. Carefully install the caliper guide pin bolts. Pump brake pedal several times to ensure vehicle has a firm brake pedal before moving vehicle. Rotate the lower end of the caliper into mounting position on adapter. 6. WARNING Extreme caution should be taken not to cross-thread caliper guide pin bolts when they are installed. Install the tire and wheel assembly. Tighten bolts to 17 ft. Install and tighten wheel-mounting nuts to 100 ft. (23 Nm).

Front  Brake  Pads   Removal & Installation 1. 5. 2. slide the caliper in on the guides to provide clearance between the rotor and inboard pad. 6. Remove the brake pads. Before servicing the vehicle. 4. Pry the pad to free it from the pistons. Once the pad is free. Place a C-clamp over the caliper as illustrated   6   . place a screw drive head against the outboard pad and hook against the rear of the caliper. refer to the Precautions section. Place a C-clamp over the caliper as illustrated. Remove the two caliper guide pin bolts and position the caliper aside. Place an appropriate pry tool through the center opening in the top of the caliper behind the inboard pad between the pistons using care not to contact the piston boots. Remove or disconnect the following: Negative battery cable Front wheels 3. Slowly tighten the screw drive and retract the caliper pistons into their bores and breaking the outboard brake pad from the caliper fingers. Fig.

Fig. Install the pin bolts and tighten to 32 ft. lbs. caliper adapter (5) and inboard pad (6) To install: 1. brake rotor (3). outboard pad (4). Completely compress the caliper pistons Install or connect the following: Brake pads with anti-rattle clips onto the adapter Caliper and align the guide pin bolt holes with the guide pins. anti-rattle clips (2). 2. lbs. Banjo bolts with new washers on each side of the hose fitting and tighten to 35 ft.         7   . (43 Nm). Check and adjust the brake system fluid level and road test the vehicle. View of the caliper guide pins and boots (1). (47 Nm) Wheels Negative battery cable 3.

Raise and support vehicle.Front  Brake  Pads   Removal & Installation 1. Remove the two bolts securing the disc brake caliper adapter (with brake caliper) to the knuckle. Use care not to overextend the brake hose when doing this. it may be necessary to retract caliper pistons into their bores a small amount in order to provide sufficient clearance between shoes and rotor to easily remove caliper from knuckle. 2. 3. Remove the wheel mounting nuts. Hang the assembly out of the way using wire or a bungee cord. Remove the disc brake caliper and adapter from the knuckle as an assembly. thus retracting piston. by grasping rear of caliper and pulling outward working with guide pins. NOTE In some cases.

Check and adjust brake fluid level as necessary. Install the brake rotor over the studs on the hub and bearing.     10   . Pump brake pedal several times to ensure vehicle has a firm brake pedal before moving vehicle. 7. Lower vehicle. Install and tighten wheel-mounting nuts to 100 ft. Install the mounting bolts securing caliper adapter to knuckle. 6. 2. (135 Nm). Install the tire and wheel assembly. To install: NOTE Inspect brake shoes before installation. Tighten bolts to 125 ft. Install the disc brake caliper and adapter assembly over brake rotor. Remove the brake rotor from the hub and bearing. lbs. 5. 9. 4.
