Hello, I hope this pic come through ok. You remove 2 rubber dust caps and I am pretty sure it is an allen wrench that is used to remove the 2 bolt pins.



  1. Remove caliper housing from caliper carrier.
    • Remove anti-rattle spring.
    • Remove dust covers.
    • Remove guide pins.
    • Remove housing from carrier.

NOTE: The inner brake pad is fitted with a clip which secures the pad into the caliper piston.

Hello Rodney 2020 and welcome to


Tracer is correct in the procedure but the exact size of the allen caliper pins is a 7mm.
