Rotors and pads
2) Remove plastic caps from the backside of the caliper.
5) Remove caliper and pads, the pry bar may come in handy here. Hang the caliper from the stiff wire to avoid stressing the rubber brake hose.
6) Remove caliper carrier bracket from hub.
7) Remove rotor retaining bolt (should be a 6mm hex). I highly recommend soaking these with some penetrating oil like WD-40 or Liquid Wrench. They tend to get frozen and may break off.
8) Use the hammer to knock the rotor off. You may want to wack the rotor
face where the lugs screw in and then finish it off by hitting the other
11) Reinstall caliper carrier bracket and torque to 81 ft-lb front or 50 ft-lb rear.
12) Gently push the piston back into the caliper a bit using a brake pad against the piston and a clamp.
13) Install new brake pads in caliper. Be sure to use some brake quiet
goop on them if they do not have any sort of anti squeel pading on them.
(I decided to use some in addition to the rubber backing.)
15) Reinstall wear sensor where applicable, reinstall anti-rattle clips,
and reinstall the caps.
16) Reinstall wheels and torque to ~75 ft-lb.
