Jack up the vehicle and support safely on stands. Remove front wheels. remove the 2 bolts that hold the caliper to its mounting bracket. Gently pry the caliper from the bracket and hang it out of the way using a piece of wire or other hanger; do not hang by brake hoses, they will be damaged. Brake hoses need not be removed unless you are also replacing the calipers. Remove the 2 bolts that hold the caliper bracket onto the steering knuckle and set the bracket aside. The caliper will now slide off the wheel studs. It may need to be tapped loose; and if there are still factory clips on the studs, remove them. They are only for assembly line purposes and may be discarded. Slide the new caliper onto the studs and reinstall the caliper bracket. Torque bolts to spec.I use a bit of Loctite on them for safety. Remove the outer brake pad from the caliper, it just pops out. Leaving the inner pad in place, use a "C" clamp to retract the caliper piston (leave the inner pad in place so the clamp doesn't damage the caliper piston). This may cause the master cylinder to overfill if it has been topped up since the last brake job. Put a suitable container on the floor to catch excess fluid. Install new pads as per instructions on carton, slide the caliper back over the rotor, aligning its mounting bolt holes and install the caliper mounting bolts. Gently pump the brake pedal until the caliper extends and the pads contact the rotor, check for any fluid leaks. Bleeding should not be required unless brake hoses were removed or damaged. If pedal is "spongy" or braking is ineffective, bleed the brakes. Reinstall the front wheels. This procedure will work on 90% of vehicles, regardless of brand.
