Install the brake caliper piston compressor (A) on the caliper body (B).
Press in the piston with the brake caliper piston compressor tool so the caliper body will fit over the brake pads. Make sure the piston boot is in position to prevent damaging it when pivoting the caliper body down.
NOTE: Be careful when pressing in the piston; brake fluid might overflow from the master cylinder's reservoir. If brake fluid gets on any painted surface, wash it off immediately with water.
Remove the brake caliper piston compressor tool.
Apply a thin coat of M-77 assembly paste (P/N 08798- 9010) to the pad side of the shims (A), the back of the brake pads (B), and the other areas indicated by the arrows. Wipe off the excess assembly paste from the pad shims and brake pads friction material. Keep grease and assembly paste away from the brake disc and brake pads. Contaminated brake disc or brake pads reduce stopping ability.
Install the brake pads and the pad shims correctly. Install the brake pad with the wear indicator (C) on the upper inside. If you are reusing the brake pads, always reinstall the brake pads in their original positions to prevent a temporary loss of braking efficiency.
09-11 models: Install the pad return spring (A) while holding the brake pads.
NOTE: Insert the pad return spring ends into the pad installation holes securely.
Pivot the caliper down into position. Install the flange bolt (A), and tighten it to the specified torque while holding the caliper pin (B) with a wrench being careful not to damage the pin boot.
Install the brake hose mounting bolt (C).
Clean the mating surfaces between the brake disc and the inside of the wheel, then install the front wheels.
Press the brake pedal several times to make sure the brakes work.
NOTE: Engagement may require a greater pedal stroke immediately after the brake pads have been replaced as a set. Several applications of the brake pedal will restore the normal pedal stroke.
Add brake fluid as needed.
After installation, check for leaks at hose and line joints or connections, and retighten if necessary.
Test-drive the vehicle, then recheck for leaks.
