Remove wheels Re-Install 2 lug nuts to hold rotor in place Remove 2 caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor Use a "C" clamp to fully retract piston into caliper body Replace inner and outer pads Re-Install caliper REMEMBER TO PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SET PADS AGAINST ROTOR PRIOR TO MOVING VEHICLE
