FRONT - LIGHT DUTY (LD)


CAUTION: Never allow the disc brake caliper to hang from the brake hose. Damage to the brake hose will result. Provide a suitable support to hang the caliper securely.

1.Install prop rod on the brake pedal to keep pressure on the brake system, Holding pedal in this position will isolate master cylinder from hydraulic brake system and will not allow brake fluid to drain out of brake fluid reservoir while brake lines are open. This will allow you to bleed out the area of repair instead of the entire system.
2.Raise and support the vehicle.
3.Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
4.Compress the disc brake caliper (6).
5.Remove the banjo bolt (4) and discard the copper washers.


6.Remove the caliper slide pin bolts (2).


7.Remove the disc brake caliper (1) from the caliper adapter (2).


8.Remove the caliper slide pins from the adapter.
