Here are some procedures you can follow to replace the brake pads. 1. Clamp the rubber lines with vacuum line clamps. You can get these at your local auto parts store. 2. Loosen the bleeder screw with the proper size wrench. 3. Loosen and remove the lower caliper to bracket bolt. 4. With the proper tool, and using a pan to catch the fluid, compress the piston in. Tighten the bleeder screw. 5. Side the caliper off and remove the old brake pads. 6. Loosen and remove the caliper mounting bracket(this is the part that the brake pads slide back and forth on). 7. Remove the rotor and have it measured and resurfaced if it is thick enough. Please keep in mind that rotor thickness can have an impact on brake performance as well as a safety issue. If it is too thin, replace them. If you just slap pads on you,could possibly get a squeal or other undesirable noise from the brakes. 8. Clean and lubricate the slide pins and bracket with some caliper grease. 9. Reinstall the rotors. 10. Remount the caliper mounting bracket, and with a torque wrench, tighten the bolts to proper specs. You can get the torque specifications from the parts store as well or a shop that does brake service. 11. Reinstall new brake pads. I usually put the pad with the metal sensor on the inside and on the bottom. 12. Remount the caliper and tighten the bolts to proper specification. 13. Loosen the bleeder screw, and with the help of an assistant, bleed the air from the system, making sure the master cylinder does not go dry. You will know if there is no more air in the system if there are no air bubbles coming from the bleeder screw as well as the firmness of the brake pedal. Make sure you have plenty of brake fluid on hand. There might be a sequence in which you have to bleed the system. You can get that from the parts store or shop as well. The sequence is usually right rear, left rear, right front, left front. 14. Mount the wheels, torque them to proper specification. Also, inflate the tires to proper pressure. Low tire pressure can cause a pulling effect. There you have it and good luck.
