Brake Pad Installation Procedure
  • Install brake pads properly. Be sure pads are securely positioned in the caliper.
  • Check Brake Fluid. Flush and replace, as needed.
  • Check all hydraulic parts for excess wear and tear.
  • Check rotor for deep grooves or scoring. Resurface or replace rotor, as needed.
  • If rotors do not need resurfacing, then contamination from the previous brake pads must be removed. Sand rotors with 130-grit sandpaper using moderate pressure. Use soap and water to clean rotor surface after sanding. Rotors should be free and clear of oil, grease and brake fluid.
  • Inspect calipers for freedom of movement. Lubricate where necessary.
