    • Remove the lug nuts
    • Hammer the tire from the back side if the wheel is stuck

  2. step 2 : Removing the Brake Caliper
    • Place a drain bucket below work area
    • Loosen the brake bleeder screw
    • Verify fluid comes out
    • Pry between the caliper and a brake pad to push back the piston and loosen the caliper
    • Close the bleeder screw
    • Loosen the two 14 mm caliper slider bolts

    • Remove and support or rest the caliper so that there is no tension on the brake hose
    • Pinch off the brake hose with hose pinch off pliers
    • Remove the brake hose bolt
  3. step 3 : Preparing the New Caliper at the Bench
    • Remove the caliper slider bolts, indicating which hole each bolt came from
    • Remove the caliper tins
    • Apply brake grease where the caliper tins rest against the bracket
    • Replace the caliper tins
    • Apply brake grease to the caliper slider bolts
    • Apply brake grease to the brake caliper only in locations where the brake pads ride
    • Seat the pads in place, making note of which pad is intended to sit in which position
    • Replace the caliper slider bolts through the caliper into the bracket
    • Tighten the caliper slider bolts by hand
  4. step 4 : Installing the New Caliper
    • Visually inspect the brake line bolt and remove all copper washers
    • Place one new copper washer on the brake line bolt
    • Make sure the brake line fitting is clean and free of debris or stuck on old washers
    • Set the brake line bolt in the fitting
    • Install the brake caliper by fitting the rotor in between the pads and lining up the bracket with the knuckle
    • Replace the 19 mm caliper bracket bolts by hand, and then tighten
    • Install a second copper washer between the brake line fitting and the caliper
    • Install the brake line fitting so that the ear of the fitting fits in the alignment hole in the caliper
    • Replace the 12 brake line bolt by hand and then tighten it
  5. step 5 : Bleeding the Brake Caliper
    • Pump the brake pedal slowly several times to activate the brake caliper
    • Open the 8 mm bleeder screw until there is a steady trickle of brake fluid
    • Close the bleeder screw
    • Replace the bleeder cap

  6. step 6 : Replacing the Wheel
