17mm 19mm Wrench
small Nail
Tools to take off the wheel

Time: 30mins-1 hour

Wait for car to cool down!

Step 2:
Jack up the car. Jack point Diff. front and rear

Step 3:
Take off Wheels

Step 4:
On the calipers there are 2 pins holding down a "spring", and the "spring" is holding down the brake pads. Use the small nail put it to the Pin from outside and hit it w/ a hammer! Slow down becareful or else the spring will fly off. Then do the same to the other pin

Next for Rear Calipers use 17mm wrench, Front Calipers use 19mm Wrench. In the back of the Caliper there are 2 bolts remove those.

Step 6:
Pull the Caliper out, careful or else the brake pad will drop!!!

Step 7:

Step 8:
There will be a metal plate for each brake, make sure to look for the arrow on the metal. The driection of the arrow is pointing to the driection of the wheel (forward). Also you will need to apply Hi-Temp Grease! Apply grease to anywhere the metal will touch.

Use same steps to do other brakes.

Warrning: When you frist drive the car, if you were cleaning the rotor or brake pad there might be a brake lag!
