Same as the front except don't try to compress the caliper. remove the cap that is in back and loosen with an Allen wrench

  • After you've installed the pads and put the caliper back on, retighten that screw in the back of the caliper with the Allen wrench until it is tight again, then back it off a quarter turn. This is to readjust the brakes. If you don;t do this the brakes will be really mushy.
AddendumThere is no Allen key or bolt to undo (unlike a Saab 9000). Instead, when the pads have been removed, you need to turn the caliper piston to retract it.Use a pair of pliers direct on the piston and turn clockwise to retract. This works!
