Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Disconnect the front part of the cable from the equalizer and then you will be able to remove the end on the caliper.

I am attaching instructions on the cable here that will help show you how to do it. Pay attention to step 4.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for helping you today. THanks
