Start out with jacking up the Car

^ After the removal of the caliper place it ontop of the brake dust cover ( make sure its on there so it doesnt fall off and might pull out the brake line.).

Once you’ve removed the caliper assembly, Remove the Old rotor.

< My rotor just fell out after i removed the caliper assembly>

From OEM rotors, it is Hard to remove the OEM rotor off the axle. So you’re gonna need a Rubber mallet and a thick rag.

Use the rubber mallet to tap ( with mild amount of pressure) the center of the rotor with out hitting the studs, and wrap a rag around the rotor (disc) and tap the other side with a medium amount of pressure heading towards you.

NOw, put the caliper assembly back. Make sure to tighten the bolts using 17mm socket with more than arm pressure till it wont really budge.

Then, Use a 14mm size socket to loosen the main caliper ( bottom bolt only!).

After that is done, Lift up the Main Caliper and itll hold it self up there. But a small budge, the caliper will fall back down.

While its up, remove the old brake pads, and install the new ones in. But do not forget to reuse the Metal/aluminum plating from the existing pads to the new pads.

Then use the old brake pad and a C-Clamp to push the piston in so it’ll fit the new pads. ( as seen above)

After all that is done, fold down the caliper and tighten the bolt. ( arm pressure)

Grab a Brake cleaner to clean out the New rotor installed. Getting rid of the grease and other substance residues to improve friction.

(seen above and below)

As seen above, reinstall the wheels and tighten up the lugnuts.

Start up the car, pump the brakes for the piston to sit on the new pads..
