Cottar pin



Place spring and insert second pin and cottar


Done



Move to the back...but now the pins come towards you





Use 130 or so grit to sand the rust from the hubs where the wheels make contact and clean the old brake material off of the rotors...per instructions on hawk hps sight. Now bed your pads per manufactures directions. Mine were approx 8 moderate force stops from 35 and 2-3 hard stops from 45, then let brakes cool.

Why do you say that???

You didn't open up the system so no air could get in.

Make sure you properly bed the pads in......and you really should flush and bleed the entire system at the same time you change the pads.

a rotor diy would be nice, and put the towel on both sides of the caliper, so you dont chip the paint off like the pictures above.

removing the rotors are easy. just remove the two 21 or 22mm bolts and remove the 10mm bolt holding the brake line onto the knuckle, then remove caliper upwards. may take some force.

Another way to compress pistons without risking damage to caliper paint is to kep the pads and place, insert long durable flat head screw driver in between pad and rotor and pry. a lot easier also because you will be compressing 2 pistons at a time versus 1. when compressing pistons if you compress them too fast, the opposite piston will tend to come back out so go slowly. slow and steady wins the race.

I just changed mine to Endless Vita Nuova. Great street pads, better than stock, low dust, works great in the rain, and doesn't squeek (given you've bed them correctly).

I hear from my mechanic that you have to re-machine the rotors, if you are changing new pads, but not rotors.


do I have to do this?

Thanks for the DIY...did my brakes this week and went pretty smooth except taking off the rotors. They wouldn't budge even after I hit a few times with a rubber mallet. Finally came off after spraying something to loosen bolts and screwing in the little bolt that initially came on my rotor to pop it loose.

I assume this is the same way to change breaks on non-Brembo?
