FRONT PAD CHANGE:
Loosen the wheel nuts and raise the vehicle. Remove the wheel nuts and wheel. Disconnect the brake wear sensor. Remove the outer pad retaining clip. Remove the caps that cover the caliper hanging pins. Using a 7mm allen wrench, loosen the caliper hanging pins until the caliper can be removed. Once you remove the caliper, remove the pads. Clean the caliper the best you can while the caliper is off. Take a big C-clamp and push the caliper piston back in. Replace the pads, replace the caliper, tighten the hanging pins, replace the caps, and reconnect the brake wear sensor.
Same as driver's side, except for absense of brake wear sensor.
Make sure you pump your brakes until firm before testing them out. Otherwise that first stop could be a bit rough. :biggrin:
