Remove wheels

Re-install 2 lug nuts to hold rotor in place

Remove caliper mounting bolts

Slide caliper off rotor

Remove inner and outer brake pads

Fully retract piston into caliper body - may need a special tool (not expensive available at Sears or auto parts)

Piston may be threaded if parking brake is used by this caliper

Install new pads

PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SET PADS AGAINST ROTOR PRIOR TO MOVING VEHICLE
