Caliper Removal

Fig. 4 Compressing Caliper Piston With Pliers

Fig. 5 Removing Caliper Mounting Bolts

  1. Remove approximately 2/3 of brake fluid from master cylinder.
  2. Raise and support front of vehicle, then remove wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Position suitable pliers over inboard pad and housing as shown in Fig. 4, and squeeze pliers to compress caliper piston.
  4. If caliper assembly is being removed for service, remove inlet fitting attaching bolt, copper washer, and inlet fitting from caliper housing. Plug opening in inlet fitting to prevent fluid loss and contamination. Do not crimp brake hose, as this may damage internal structure of hose. If only shoe and lining assemblies are to be replaced, do not disconnect brake line fitting from caliper.
  5. Remove Allen head caliper mounting bolts, Fig. 5. If bolts show signs of corrosion, use new bolts when installing caliper assembly.
  6. Remove caliper assembly from disc. If only shoe and lining assemblies are to be replaced, using a length of wire suspend caliper from spring coil. Never allow caliper to hang from brake hose.
