- 15mm socket and box end wrench
- 13mm socket and box end wrench
- High Temp Silicone grease
- Raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Chock the front tires.
- Remove the wheel.
- Remove the thin metal retainer nut on the stud, if equipped. (holds the rotor in place)
- Remove the two 13mm bolts from the brake caliper slider pins.
- Pry the caliper and pads off of the rotor. The rotor may have developed a ridge on the outer circumference. You may need to file the ridge down before you can remove the caliper.
- Discard old pads.
- Remove the two 15mm bolts from the caliper bracket.
- Remove the rotor.
- The caliper piston must be screwed back into the caliper bore. Use a caliper piston tool and rotate the piston clockwise. The slots in the piston must be at 12 and 6 o'clock to line up with the pad.
- Reattach the caliper bracket and loosely tighten.
- Reattach the caliper to the bracket and loosely tighten.
- Use a caliper piston "box tool" or caliper tool to rotate the piston.
- Remove components.
- Remove the slider pins from the bracket. Be careful not to damage the rubber boots.
- Clean slider pins and slider holes on the bracket of old grease and rust.
- Liberally apply high temp silicone grease to slider pins and holes.
- Reinstall slider pins and boots in the the caliper bracket. Make sure the flat side of the slider is in the correct position.
- Install new or resurfaced old rotor. Use brake cleaner to remove any oil from the rotor surface before installing. Anti-seize grease around the hub and rotor center hole will prevent the new rotor from rusting to the hub.
- Use a lug nut to hold the rotor in place.
- Install the caliper bracket with the two 15mm bolts. Torque to 65-87 ft lbs.
- Install the new pads. Use high temp silicone on the pad's back and sides (anywhere the pad makes contact with the caliper). This will prevent squeal and dragging.
- Slide the caliper down over the new pads.
- Make sure the pad next to the caliper piston is correctly seated into the piston slot.
- Install the two 13mm slider pin bolts. Torque to 23-25 ft lbs
- Mount wheel and torque to 85-100 ft lbs.
