So get everything assembled and have a jackstand holding the car up when you do this.
Look on the forum for a good list of reliable brand of products or get OEM from the dealer. As you can see almost everything I got was from the dealer minus the Zimmermann Rotors, Rebuilt Calipers and High performance SuperBlue ATE brake fluid.
Once the wheel is off and jack is firmly in place. Clean up the area from any brake dust whether its brake cleaner or a good shop rag/towel you will the brake caliper is composed of two pieces. A floating set up. Use a penetrating lubricant to help break the bolts loose. The bolts hold that center portion of the caliper to the outer portion of the caliper( called an anchor). I dont remember what size those were. 13mm maybe but don't quote me. DO NOT REUSE THOSE BOLTS. You new brake pad sets should come with new bolts use them, they should have a dribble of blue locktite on them already. You will have to use a wrench and a rachet as the nut that holds onto the caliper "floats" in the caliper. Before lifting the caliper, unplug the sensors from the pads. Once the bolts are off lift the caliper off and DO NOT let it dangle as the brake line will be stressed and damaged hang it with something. I used a wire hanger to the coil. Surprisingly heavy so make sure it hangs.
The pads should be sitting on top of the anchor, take them off.
This is the anchor removed the back side of the anchor facing up. The small holes on the bottom being where the caliper bolts on the larger bolt holes are for bolting the anchor to the spindle. Needs only to be removed if replacing the Rotors as well. Again Dont remember the bolt sizes some one please help on this one. was it 17mm? The Rotor popped off after removing a small hex bolt that sits between the wheel bolt holes.
This should be what you are staring at when everything is off. It was a great time for me to re-grease my wheel bearings
So with everything off look at the caliper that's hanging it should contain a plastic cap on top. Pop open the cap and the brake sensors are there. Some say to just leave them be regardless of used or not. I like to change things just to save myself the headache. pop them off. When putting the new pads, be sure to add brake paste to the back of the pads, otherwise risk serious squeaks. Be liberal with the paste. reassemble in reverse order. I don't have the tightening torques on me. I essentially cranked the torque wrench to 60ft/lbs and went at it. But again don't quote me. I should have done this write up back in sep/dec when I remembered everything...
Oh and check the rubber boots on the anchor if they are torn, replace. I added some bearing grease to it and popped my new boots on as mine were torn
anyone care to chime in on the specs and bolts sizes. When I did this, it was my first time as well...
