Question about 2005 Nissan Titan
Buy an 8 in C clamp. remove the wheel, take the cover off the brake
fluid resovoir, use the C clamp to depress the piston back into the
caliper. you do this by placing one side on the metal housing of the
caliper, and the other on the edge of the brake pad you can see. there
are two bolts which have allen wrench heads that you have to remove.
1)jack truck up
3)remove both 12 mm bolts holding the caliper on
4)pry caliper off..... do not damage the piston boot
5)hang the caliper somewhere using a bungee cord or a bent up coat hanger. DON't just let it hang there.. on an old line this will tear it or cause it to collapse inside.
6)Use the tool mentioned above to reset the piston into caliper. Don't worry brake fluid will leak out of the master cylinder lid...no worries if it does if it didnt you were low on brake fluid to begin with.
7)remove the bolts in the caliper, as well as their cylinder like housings (sliders). clean them and lube them with silglide/ or lubricant that came with pads. Lubricate the backings of the pads aswell very lightly. reinstall the sliders and bolts.
8)pry the old pads off the caliper, install the new ones.
9)if the rotors are being changed they should come off. there maybe OE clips on the lugs nuts holding them off, otherwise they should just fall off..if not persuade them with a hammer. Put the new rotors on
9)remove the stainless steel clips from the caliper bracket, put the new ones on and lubricate them on the outside (any part that will have the pads riding on them). The idea is to help the pads slide in and out when installed.
10) install the caliper that has been loaded with fresh pads. if it does not fit take the pads off, and reset the caliper piston further. Sometimes the calipers sliders are blocking the caliperfrom being seated right if this is the case take the caliper off the rotor and push the sliders in.
11)bolt the caliper back up and your done
12)before you drive you need to pump the brake pedal till it gets hard. if you do not do this, the truck will NOT HAVE any brakes for like 10 full pumps. so pump the brakes before droping out the jack and driving off
