  • Remove 2 calper bolts, They are #1 in the picture
  • After removing the bolts, Remove the calpier from the bracket
  • Remove the brake pads from the retaining clips
  • Next, you will have to compress the rear calpiers, This wil require a special tool that can be rented from any local parts store. The rear calipers are screw type and need to be screwed in with the special tool
  • Note: The passanger caliper needs to be turned counterclockwise.
  • After pressing the calpier in, Install new pads and then install caliper.
  • Tighten caliper bolts.
  • Be sure to pump the brake pedal a few times before driving the vehicle as the car will not stop until the caliper is set into position
