(10) Install master cylinder fluid reservoir cap.
Hope this helps...I know it's extremely difficult to find manuals for these cars. These instructions are straight out of the factory service manual.

There is no "easiest way" to remove the pads. You need to unbolt the calipers, (bolts are on the inboard side surrounded by small rubber boots) retract the caliper pistons and remove/replace pads,(make note if any pads are marked R&L) put it back together. Make sure that slides that caliper bolts pass through move freely. Don't use calipers with torn rubber dust boots and don't pinch boot between pad and piston when you reassemble. Unless you open the hydraulic system you do not need to bleed. Before attempting to drive, depress pedal a few times to restore proper caliper adjustment.

Remove the tires, Remove the calaper bolts, (small heads on them 12mm or so) Remove calaper, Pads are setting in a holder. Lube new pads with litheum grease and place in holder. (look at old pads, one or both may have small metel tab on one end) If the new pads have the tab, put that pad where the old pad with the tab was. (ie. tab to the inside) Press pistion in with a 'C' clamp. If it won't go in easly, it may screw in. If the parking brake cable is hooked to the calaper, it probly screws in. Use large pliers to screw in calaper piston. Place calaper over pads and install bolts (lube bolts) Rember to pump brakes befor driving . to get a solid peddle.

Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!
