  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel.
    [attachmentid=15491]
  3. Remove the two 13mm bolts from the brake caliper bracket.
    [attachmentid=15510]
  4. Remove the caliper and use the wire hanger to support it out of the way. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake line!
    [attachmentid=15493]
  5. Remove the old brake pads.
    [attachmentid=15492]
  6. Remove the two 15mm bolts.
  7. Remove the caliper bracket.
    [attachmentid=15494]
  8. Remove and discard the lug clips if equipped.
    [attachmentid=15511]
  9. Remove the rotor.
    [attachmentid=15495]
  10. Clean oil from new rotors with brake cleaner.
  11. Install the new rotor. Hand tighten one or two lug nuts to hold the rotor securely to hub.
    [attachmentid=15496]
  12. Remove the slider pins from the caliper bracket.
    [attachmentid=15497]
  13. Clean the caliper bracket and pins. Use fresh high temp silicone grease to lubricate pins. Reinstall pins.
  14. Use the caliper compressor and an old brake pad to compress the caliper piston. It's best to have the compressor centered to the caliper piston to prevent binding.
    [attachmentid=15499]
  15. Install the caliper bracket. Tighten the two 15mm nuts and torque to spec. (103Nm, 76lb-ft)
  16. Place the new pads on the caliper bracket and rotor.
    [attachmentid=15498]
  17. Install the caliper over the new pads. Line up the flats on the slider pins and press the caliper over the new pads.
    [attachmentid=15500]
  18. Tighten the two 13mm bolts to secure the caliper to the bracket. Torque to spec (35Nm, 26lb-ft)
1996-00 SLO Front disc upgrade:

Follow the above instructions. Remove your old caliper bracket, rotor, and pads. Use the 96-99 SHO or 01-06 SLO parts when you reinstall brakes. That's all that's required for the upgrade!

RIP TCCA
