Haynes Manual. Read it, but experience is best. See Below 1. Set Emergency brake 2. Loosen lugs while wheel is on the ground notice I said loosen 3. Jack up the vehicle and use safety stands 4. Remove lugs, remove wheel (serves as a good seat if you don't have a mechanics bench. 5. remove the 4 wheel drive hub (if you are going to remove the rotor. If not, there are two bolts I don't remember the size right now, but once you loosen those two bolts holding the caliper, the caliper can be removed. You might need to pry the pad a little bit to allow it to slip off. In other words to push the piston in a bit. 6. If you need to remove the rotors, the hub bearings must be removed. Pay close attention to the way the washer in place as it only goes in one way. Wiggle the rotor to loose the bearing so you can pull it out with your hand. remove the rotor. 6a. There are 3 screws you need to loosen up and remove with its plate in order to be able to lossen the outer bearing locking nut. 7. When replacing the rotor reverse the process and replace the back grease seal. No sense in doing the work and not replacing the grease seal. 8. If replacing pads, compress the piston on the caliper you can use either the tool for it or a C clamp. Do not over tighten while compressing. The pisto should go in smoothly. If it does not, you have a lock piston. Open the bleeder valve and see if it compresses inward. If it does then you are good to go. Close Bleeder valve before removing C clamp or compressing tool. Do not force the piston in, it can break. 9. With the help of another person, bleed the caliper once everything is in place. 10. Bleeding can be done with either a vacuum pump for bleeding brakes, but save money. Have someone pump the breaks at least 5 times. Open bleeder valve right side first and left side last in the front. If you are bleeding the back, the left side rear first right side rear second, front right side third, front left side last. 11. The person pumpming the brakes has to let you know when the pedal hits the floor. He should hold the pedal in that position until you closed the bleeder valve to prevent air from entering the system. Check the brake fluid reservoir after each bled, and replenish the spent hydraulic liquid. Or you can attache a little hose to the bleeder valve and dump the liguid in a a can. Throw it out, no sense in putting old dirty liquid back in the reservoir. And use EPA guidlines for dispsoing, or take it to Autozone, they have a place to get rid of it. Repeat the process at least 3 times for each wheel, or if using a bleeder tool until there are no bubbles in the cup catching the fluid. Hope this helps.
