  1. INSTALL NEW PADS NOTICE: When replacing worn pads, the anti-squeal shims must be replaced together with the pads.

(a)Draw out a small amount of brake fluid from the reservoir.
(b)Press in the pistons with a monkey wrench handle or equivalent.

HINT:

  • Tape the monkey wrench handle before use.
  • Always change the pad on one wheel at a time as there is a possibility of the opposite piston flying out.
  • If the piston is difficult to push in, loosen the bleeder plug and push in the piston while letting some brake fluid escape.

(c)Install the anti-squeal shims to new pads.

HINT: Apply disc brake grease to both sides of inner anti-squeal shims.

(d)Install new pads.

NOTICE: Do not allow oil or grease to get on the rubbing face.
