EASY PUSH THE PIN OUT THAT HOLDS PADS SLIDE OLD PADS OUT .PRESS THE CALIPER BACK IN WITH PRY TOOL INSTALL NEW PADS ,SLIDE PIN BACK IN ,DONE TAKES 5 MIN TO CHANGE PAD,PIN IS ABOUT 2 IN LONG 3/16 IN DIA.
YOU NEED TO SAFELY RAISE SUPPORT REAR OF VECHICLE ON JACKSTANDS. MAKE SURE VECHICLE PARKED ON SOLID LEVEL GROUND. YOU NEED TO SIPHON JUST A LITTLE BRAKE FLUID OUT OF THE MASTERCYLINDER.BECAUSE YOU NEED TO USE LARGE C - CLAMP TO COMPRESS FORCE PISTONS BACK IN THE CALIPER BORES USING LARGE C - CLAMP DOING THIS WILL ALLOW YOU ENOUGH ROOM INSTALL NEW REAR BRAKE PADS.TO REMOVE REAR PADS ONCE YOU COMPRESS PISTON BACK IN THE CYLINDER BORE. YOU CAN TO REMOVE REAR BRAKE PADS BY REMOVING RETAINING PINS IF EQUIPPED OR BRAKE PADS HELD IN PLACE BY RETAINING BOLTS.ONCE YOU HAVE NEW REAR BRAKE PADS INSTALLED.PLACE MASTERCYLINDER COVER BACK ON TOP OF MASTERCYLINDER THEN PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SEAT NEW REAR BRAKE PADS AGAINST THE ROTOR UNTIL BRAKE PEDAL FEEL FIRM AND SOLID.THEN RECHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IN BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER ADD LITTLE MORE FLUID IF NEED DONT OVER FILL MASTERCYLINDER.
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
Remove or disconnect the following:
Clip, 2 caliper pins, the anti-rattle spring then remove the 2 brake pads and the 4 anti-squeal shims
CAUTION Only replace brake pads on 1 side of the vehicle at a time. Failure to use this procedure could cause the caliper pistons on the opposite side of the vehicle to pop out requiring the reconditioning or replacement of the brake caliper.
Remove a small amount of brake fluid from the master cylinder.
Install a used brake pad into the caliper and compress the caliper pistons.
Apply disc brake grease to both sides of the inner anti-squeal shims.
Install or connect the following:
Anti-squeal shims to the new brake pads NOTE: When replacing worn pads, the anti-squeal shims must be replaced together with the pads.
2 brake pads
Anti-rattle spring and the 2 caliper pins
Depress the brake pedal several times to seat the brake pads.
Check the brake fluid level and top off as needed.
For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!! For front brake pads. For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow: 1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose! 2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper. 3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease). 4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier. 5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston. 6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary! 7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing. 8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward). 9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier. 10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm. 11. Install both caps. 12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!
1. torque on the slide pins is about 25 to 30 ft lbs. 2. torque on caliper bracket to knuckle is 80 to 100 ft lbs 3. get the best pad you can get ,its an Acura . I recommend Bendix import quiet ceramic pads. 4. ceramic = less noise/dust less stopping power metalics= better stopping power/noisey lots of dust
NEED A 17MM SOCKET TO REMOVE THE REAR TIRES, THEN THERE IS A PIN THAT HOLD THE TOP OF THE PADS IN. YOU MUST REMOVE THAT PIN WITH A TYPE OF PUNCH AND USE A HAMMER . PUNCH IT OUT THEN REMOVE ONE PAD, PUSH THE PISTON IN THEN THE OTHER PAD. PUT THE PIN BACK IN PLACE, DO THE SAME TO THE OTHER SIDE
I fill you in what I learned today. I have a 2005 S-Type Jaguar and the dealer sayed it needed new pads in the rear. They wanted $300 just for the pads and another $150 or so to install. That $450 bucks to replace the brake pads only on the rear of the car. And of course, the extended warranty doesn't cover this, so I said no thanks. I found the best brake pads from Napa for $52. I purchased them through my brothers shop- saved a little. I done lots of brake pad replacements over the years, but not on a new car like the Jaguar. Well they are a little different and the frist one took me awhile . Here is the trick. 1) MAke sure the parking brake is off and you do this by starting the car, stepping on the normal brake and then pushing the parking break lever down while shutting off the car. 2) You then take the tire off, use jack stands to ensure safety.3) Take off brake callipers, 2 bolts and the brake pads should just fall off.4) take the anti-rattle plate off the old pads by prying it off carefully with a tiny screw driver- clean and then install on the new ones. 5) Here I release the the valve for the brake fluid. I did not want to damage the system if the fluid went back into the system when I retracted the calliper. You use some fluid, but you can add when finished. 6)You either need one of those brake calliper tools that you push the calliper in with and If you don't have the trick new one with the keys to turn the brake calliper cylinder, you can get by with the old version like I did and use a pair of channel locks to turn counter clockwise, while continuing to turn the tool. The cylinder needss pressure on it while you turn. This will put in in the proper place. 7) Ensure you have the slots up and down so that the pin in the pad fits up into the cylinder. you know this is correct when you have it perfect vertical and center within the calliper. Pay attention when taking off! 8) Set the brake pads in their proper place and then slide the calliper over them. IT should go over freely or else you need to turn more on the cylinder. 9) Tighten the bolts and replace the tire and you are done. Next side!
Hope this helps. -Dave @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello, When you are looking at the caliper, you should see two pins
holding the pads in. Look for the holes or the ends of the pins and
drive them toward the inside of the caliper until they come out. Then
take a large screwdriver or large channel locks and pry the pads away
from the rotor. Now you should be able to take the pads out. When
installing the new pads, you will have to put the pins back from the
back side until they are flush with the caliper. When finished, make
sure you pump the brake pedal until it comes up to the normal level
before trying to move the car. I hope this helps. CYA Gator241
