Question about Nissan Sentra
Set the e-brake. Break the lugs loose on both sides,don't get crazy,just break them free. Jack one side up & remove the tire. You'll need a 12mm & 14mm wrench or socket for the next step. Remove the 2 bolts holding the brake caliper to the bracket. Use a hefty flat blade screw driver, if needed, to pry the caliper off the disk. Remove the pads & you should clean the rotor & caliper bracket with brake cleaner spray. Next use a "c" clamp to compress the caliper piston. Install the new pads into the caliper bracket. You usually need to angle them into place. They should be flush against the rotor. Re-install the caliper & don't over tighten the bolts. A quarter turn past snug is more than enough(or 100in lbs. if you want specs,lol). Install your tire, hand tighten the lugs, lower the jack, & use whatever you used to take the wheel off to finish tightening. Repeat for the other side. Once done,press the brake a few times until the pedal gets hard. Now it's safe to drive!! Oh, & be sure to use proper saftey precautions, like don't get under the car when it's on a jack! Set the e-brake! Don't work without some one else around, could be fatal. Just be safe.
