Step 1 : Remove the wheels.
-Start by removing the wheel by unblocking the 4 bolts.
You don’t have to remove the bolts, just untight them.
– Raise your vehicle until the wheel no longer touches the ground using a jack.
-Then place jack stand under the vehicle0
-Remove the bolts completely, then remove the wheel.
If it’s stuck, hit it on the tire to dislodge it.
Step 2 : Remove the caliper 1/3.
-Turn the wheels to get a work easier.
-Remove the caliper by removing the 2 fixations.
Step 3 : Remove the caliper 2/3.
-Remove the two fixing screws using an hex key.
Step 4 : Remove the fixing spring.
–Think to remove the spring with a screwdriver.
Step 5 : Push the piston.
Step 6 : Remove the caliper 3/3.
Open the brake fluid reservoir then, using a flat screwdriver, lever the piston to retract it as far as possible.
This will make it easier to release the caliper.
Step 7 : Remove the brake pads.
You can now remove the caliper.
When removing, be careful not to stress the brake hoses. It could damage them.
Step 8 : Push the piston.
Remove the pads then clean the pad supports with a wire brush.
Step 9 : Install new brake pads.
– Push back the plunger.
For this, the use of a piston pusher or clamp is strongly recommended.
It allows the new thicker pads to be mounted by pushing back the caliper piston.
Position the tool in the caliper and apply pressure to the pistons. You have to push them back as much as possible.
Step 10 : Install the caliper.
Once the piston is pushed back, put the new pads in the caliper.
Step 11 : Clean the brake disk.
-Install the caliper again.
-You can apply copper grease to the sliders then slide the sliders into their slots.
Once the sliders are tight, remember to refit the brake caliper springs.
The pads are now mounted on the caliper.
Step 12 : Install the wheels.
-Clean the disk with some brake cleaner.
– Refit the wheel and its nuts.
-Remove the stands and the jack then tighten the wheel bolts with the torque wrench.
Do not forget to pump the brake pedal before starting to approach the pads on the disc.
