The front disc brake system consists of a single-piston front disc brake caliper (2B120) and a ventilated front disc brake rotor (1125). The brake shoes and linings (2001) are held in the front disc brake caliper by two front disc brake caliper locating pins (2B296) and two springs. The inboard brake shoe and lining is equipped with a wear indicator that makes a squealing noise when the brake shoes and linings are worn beyond recommended use.
on the caliper thare is a bleeder screw. you will need to open and close it.have someone step on the brake pedal 10 times and hold it down.with the brake holding,,open the bleeder screw.let it run for 2 seconds,then close off the bleeder.Pump and hold down the pedal again.Do this 35 times
take a pair of channel locks and turn the caliper piston clockwise while pushing it in a little bit at a time until it is in all the way. Some pins on the back of them so they sit in the caliper right. make sure to line those pins up. They do make a tool to turn the piston but I have done it this way before. Hope this helps leave comment.
It is fairly easy. On these cars, you don't need to unbolt the caliper, or remove it. If you remove the two pins, the brake pad will just slide out. The two pins are held in by an arrangement of wire clips. You need to squeeze the wire clip, and lever it back, then pull it clear of the pin. It is difficult to explain, but quite easy to figure out. You don't need to use any tools, you should be able to remove the spring clip thing by hand.
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
