    • Some of the fluid from the master cylinder
    • Wheels
    • 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
    • Outboard brake pad by prying the brake pad retaining clip over raised area on the caliper. Then slide the pad down and off the caliper.
  1. Before 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. installing front brake pads - 0900c152802197b8.jpgRemoval and installation of the disc brake pads
To install:
  1. Lubricate both the caliper mating surface and the machined abutment surfaces with multi-purpose lubricant.
  2. Before 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.
  3. 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).
  4. Top off the master cylinder to the appropriate level, using DOT 3 type brake fluid only.
  5. Before moving the vehicle, pump the brakes until a firm pedal is obtained. Road test the vehicle to make sure the brake operation is normal.

I ave a low growling noice and brake pedal pulses


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.

Break pedal squeaking


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.

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.

Front rims get dirty and back ones stay clean


Hi Joanna, 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.
