Answers :

To remove the front disc brakes , you must remove the break caliber assembly . Keep in mind that on some brake calipers a special Torx Drive T40 or T45 must be used to remove the caliber bolts from the spindle assembly . Also , Allen (Hex) bolts are sometimes used . Be sure you have the right tools .
\015\0121. Properly block both rear wheels at the front in the back of each wheel.
\015\0122. Loosen the lug nuts on both front wheels one turn on each nut.
\015\0123.Jack up and support the front of the car on Jack stands with the wheels one to 2in. off the ground.
\015\0124. Remove the two bolts on the inside of the caliber the secure it to the spindle .
\015\0125.Once the bolts have been removed the caliber should pull straight away from the rotor and spindle assembly .
\015\0126.Remove your old brake pads , clean the assembly , properly lubricate the moving parts as necessary , especially the floating sleeve as the assembly is called a floating caliber which means half of the Caliper is bolted to the spindle (inner) but the other half floats (outer).
\015\0127.Use a large see clamp centered between the caliper piston and caliper housing to push the piston all the way back into the caliber cylinder by turing (1 turn at a time) the screw until the piston is flush with the caliber face .
\015\0128. Install your new brake pads .
\015\0129. use the reverse procedure to assemble everything back together. Good luck and be safe....
