FRONT

1. Raise and support the vehicle.

2. Remove the wheel mounting nuts (3), then the tire and wheel assembly (1).

NOTE: In some cases, it may be necessary to retract the caliper piston in its bore a small amount in order to provide sufficient clearance between the pads and the rotor to easily remove the caliper from the knuckle. This can usually be accomplished before removal by grasping the inboard side of the caliper and pulling outward working with the guide pins, thus retracting the piston. Never push on the piston directly as it may get damaged.

4. Remove the disc brake caliper and adapter bracket (1) from the knuckle (2) and rotor (4) as an assembly.
