Re: installing front brake pads
Some of the fluid from the master cylinder
2 caliper guide pin bolts
Caliper assembly by swinging the top part of the caliper away from the brake rotor edge, then lift the caliper assembly up
brake pad by prying the brake pad retaining clip over raised area on
the caliper. Then slide the pad down and off the caliper.
removing the inboard brake pad, use a large C-clamp to press the piston
back into the caliper. This will prevent possible damage to the caliper
piston. It is good practice to remove some (1/3–1/2)
of the brake fluid from the reservoir. This is because as the caliper
piston is pushed back into the caliper, brake fluid will be pushed back
through the lines, back into the master cylinder and fluid reservoir,
possibly causing the reservoir to overflow.
Inboard brake pad by pulling away from piston until the retainer clip is free from the cavity in the piston.
Removal and installation of the disc brake pads
Lubricate both the caliper mating surface and the machined abutment surfaces with multi-purpose lubricant.
brake pad installation, be sure to lightly coat the outer backing plate
surface of the new brake pads with a disc brake pad anti-squeal
lubricant, usually a gel-like material that deadens any high-frequency
vibration that can be the source of disc brake squeal.
Install or connect the following:
Brake pads into the caliper assembly making sure both pads are seated securely onto the caliper
Caliper assembly back into position over the brake rotor
Caliper guide pin bolts and torque to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm)
Wheels and lug nuts. Torque the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm).
Top off the master cylinder to the appropriate level, using DOT 3 type brake fluid only.
moving the vehicle, pump the brakes until a firm pedal is obtained.
Road test the vehicle to make sure the brake operation is normal.

As a general rule, if the wheel shakes when you apply the brakes, the front disk rotors are warped. If the brake pedal pulses when you apply brakes, the rear brake rotors are warped. So you most likely have warped rear brake rotors. The noise may be that the wear indicators on the brake pads are touching the disks, indicating that you need new brake pads. Given both of these, I suggest a trip to the local brake repair centre is needed.
is the squeak inside the car? if so, then yes it's probably the pedal or linkage. If it's outside the car, then either the brakes were done poorly or the pads are defective. Assuming you had the front and rear brakes done. Could be the other brakes if only 1 axle was serviced.
You need a c-clamp, put one of the old brake pad's in front of the caliper piston, with c-clamp push piston in, when your done installing the brake pads, pump brake peddle till it come's back up, then your set.
remove the BOTTOM 15mm caliper bolt lift the caliper up and slide off
then remover the 2 15mm bolts holding the caliper housing on
remove the brake rotor (you may have to hit it with a hamer to break it free
depending on the brake pads you got some come with new sliders
remove the sliders clean the rust build up then install new sliders
lube the sliders install the pads
install new rotor
install the caliper housing with the 2 15mm bolts
install the caliper and lube both caliper pins with silicone lube
PUMP THE BRAKE PEDAL TILL IT GETS HARD WITHOUT ENGINE RUNNING
The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.
SECTION 206-03: Front Disc Brake
2001 Villager Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
Pads —Front Disc Brake
Remove the wheel and tire assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 204-04 .
Remove the front disc brake caliper bolts. torx bit. T20?
Support the front disc brake caliper from the front strut and spring assembly using mechanics wire.
Remove the front disc brake pads.
Remove the outboard front disc brake pad.
Remove the inboard front disc brake pad.
CAUTION: Make sure the master cylinder reservoir does not overfill and spill brake fluid while retracting the front disc brake caliper piston. NOTE: It is necessary to fully retract the front disc brake caliper piston in the bore before installing the front disc brake pads. Install the front disc brake pads.
Install the inboard front disc brake pad.
Install the outboard front disc brake pad.
Caution. The outer pads are left and right. put left on driver side.
Position the front disc brake caliper on the front-wheel knuckle and install the brake caliper pin bolts.
WARNING: It is necessary to depress the brake pedal several times to position the front disc brake caliper piston before driving the vehicle.
What you are seeing is perfectly normal and occurs on any automobile because the front brakes wear faster than the rear. Notice that when you step on the brake, the weight of the car shifts forward, putting extra stress on the front breaks. Next time in a parking lot, notice the same dirty front wheels of other cars.
