The most important thing about the brakes here, what we found was the pedal was soft, it didn't feel like they should, and you'll notice that when these were sliding or weren't sliding and getting stuck on this corroded brake slide hardware, you know it's the new parts, allow the pad to slide just it should when they're new. If you don't have the benefit of air tools, you want to loosen the lug nuts with the vehicle on the ground, then jack up and secure the vehicle. Check your codes in your glove box to determine which code is correct on the caliper mounting bracket bolts. Your actual range will vary based on several factors including temperature, terrain and driving conditions. When brake squeal occurs, there may be damage or excessive wear on one or more components affecting noise, including the brake pads, the noise-damping shim that is bonded to the brake pad, or the rotor friction surface. Then, using a large C-clamp, as you tighten the clamp, that paddle push those pistons back in and reset them, as you can see here. After we get it broken free, we'll speed up here now as we just remove it the rest of the way.
Then you'll want to put some grease on them. If they're torn, you pull them out and you push them in. Your actual range may vary based on several factors including temperature, terrain, and driving technique. A: Brake-pedal pulsation and other conditions such as steering-wheel shaking while braking are caused by thickness variation in the brake rotor When a thicker spot of the rotor rotates through the caliper, it pushes back against brake fluid, which can be felt at the brake pedal. Sit in the driver's seat of the vehicle and pump the brake pedal a few times to restore the brake line pressure. Brake pulsation is not caused by warping of the disc. While brake rotors designed to fit the same vehicle will often be similar in appearance and dimensions, there can be differences in internal cooling vane design, thickness of the brake plates against which the brake pad rubs , and the grade and material specification of the cast iron.
Tighten the lug nuts caps with a and ratcheting wrench to just past hand tight. Tighten the bolt to 13 ft. Check the brake fluid in the reservoir and verify that it is at the proper level.

Again, as you take that caliper out, make sure that slide bolt comes out nicely. You can see we push on it with the screwdriver, and we have to resort to a hammer to get those out of the way.
A: Brake pads are equipped with wear indicators that produce a squealing noise when the brakes are almost worn out. This will avoid damaging the bearing seal. Your actual range may vary based on several factors, including temperature, terrain and driving technique. Do not use compressed air or blow with your mouth to clean off the brake parts since breathing in brake dust can be harmful to your health. We've put grease on the inside as well as a light coat on the outside. If you're changing them, you want to use one of the old ones, and you want to lay it across these two pistons.
You need a long screwdriver. Do not over tighten the lug nut caps. Not to exceed 90 ft. We just greased the spots where it's going to contact those slides, as well as put some on the back just to prevent them from squeaking. Your actual range may vary based on several factors including temperature, terrain, and conditions. We're the company that's here for you on the Internet and in person.

All fees and programming subject to change. Brake components are engineered as a complete system—factory-original performance can only be assured when using original equipment brake pads and rotors. It's also a good idea to regularly check your driveway for drops of brake fluid which may indicate a leak, check the brake fluid level in the reservoir, and also verify that the lug nuts are still tight.
Start off by removing the wheel cover or whatever wheel trim you might have. Line up the lug nut cover and spin on the lug nut caps by hand to prevent them from becoming cross threaded. You should be able to take, if your caliper bracket is in good shape, those pads off by hand. You put the cap in place and then you turn of the lug cap, the lug cover by hand until you feel it click once, then you turn it another quarter to half a turn until it rests in the next detent. In order for the caliper to fit over the thicker new brake pads, the two caliper pistons need to be compressed backwards.
Then you want to torque those lug nuts to 100 foot-pounds. All fees and programming subject to change. These calipers deliver a direct fit to replace your stock calipers in a snap. What you want to do is you want to take some white grease and just put it on the clips of these new brake pads. There are two 21mm bolts back here that hold on this caliper bracket.
