Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be more than happy to assist you.
Are you replacing the caliper or just the brake pads?
Notice: Support the brake caliper with heavy mechanic wire, or equivalent, whenever it is separated from its mount and the hydraulic flexible brake hose is still connected. Failure to support the caliper in this manner will cause the flexible brake hose to bear the weight of the caliper, which may cause damage to the brake hose and in turn may cause a brake fluid leak.
Pull the caliper (2) straight off of the bracket and secure out of the way with heavy mechanics wire (1). DO NOT disconnect the hydraulic brake flexible hose from the caliper.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Cautions and Notices.
Tighten Tighten the brake caliper bolts to 34 N·m (25 lb ft).
