Changing brake pads on this model is fairly straightforward:


  • Remove the lower sliding pin bolt(highlighted in yellow):


  • Rotate the caliper upwards and use a coathanger wire to suspend caliper(hook it to the coil)
  • remove pads from caliper
  • place old pad in caliper and use a large C-clamp to compress caliper pistons back




  • apply brake quiet lubricant to hardware where pads sit:



  • install new pads
  • lower caliper down and tighten lower sliding pin bolt
