Front brake and rotor replacement
First off I'd like to say I am not a mechanic. I am pretty handy and work for an auto parts manufacturer. I've changed brakes on a number of different vehicles, this had some similarities, but other things that you will need to be aware of BEFOREHAND. I'm going to explain as simply as possible.
Here it goes!
1) Jack it up! I lifted on the subframe and put jack stands just behind the wheels
2) I used my impact gun with a 19mm socket to remove the (5) wheel bolts
3) 14mm socket to remove (2) caliper bolts that mount caliper to caliper bracket
5) suspend caliper from spring with rope/bungee/wire
**if not changing rotors skip to 13 and ignore 15**
6) External Torx E-20 to remove (2) single use caliper bracket bolts--order (4 [to complete both sides]) 06510023AA From dealer in advance.
Note: three of mine came out with my impact gun @ 90 psi. The fourth wouldn't budge, even @ 120 psi. I fought with one bolt for an hour! The only way I got it was I turned the knuckle out, got a large breaker bar with a long pipe and cranked it out.
7) 5mm allen socket to remove rotor mount bolt
8) smack rotor with 3-5 lb hammer at 6-12-3-9 o'clock until released from rust
9) scour rust from hub with red pad/sand paper
10) apply antiseize to hub surface for future removal ease
11) install new rotor
*spray both sides of the surface of the rotor with brake cleaner
12) replace 5mm allen rotor mount bolt
13) pop old hardware out of caliper bracket
**pay attention to how they are in there!
14) lube hardware gap, place new hardware, lube new hardware
15) remount caliper bracket with NEW caliper mount bolts
16) install squealers on new pads (my OE were always on the end of the pad that pointed upwards) and lube the tabs and backing plate of the pad
17) pop new pads into bracket
*Easiest way is to put end with squealer in then use small flat-blade to lever the bottom tab into place.
18) compress Pistons back into caliper
*keep old pad on piston side and use caliper tool or c-clamp. Make sure it is fully pressed back in
19) remount caliper with 14mm bolts
20) remount wheel, hand tighten wheel bolts
21) repeat on the other side
22) lower truck and torque 19mm wheel studs using star torque sequence
I'm sure I left things out, but I tried! Sorry no pictures, I was also watching my three year old at the time!
Hope this helps!
