tools needed for brake job

Please excuse my ignorance on the subject. Could you guys key me know exactly what I week need to replace the from pads.

I heard it's fairly simple but want to be prepared. Maybe there is a how to or video that I missed while searching.

Re: tools needed for brake job

On the 6-pistons, sadly no. If they are worn down a bit they will come out. Just be prepared to fight with them a bit.

You will need a pin punch, then a 14 to loosen the middle bolt for the spring hold down. Also you will need an adjustable wrench to place on the pin to fully pull it out, I hit it with the hammer while the wrench was attached to the pin. After that the pads will pull out, or you will need a small pry bar wrapped in tape to push between the rotor and pad to create room so you can pull them out. After this you can push the pistons in by hand, really.

Two notes, and serious ones at that. 1) Remember how the spring goes, or take pictures, it will confuse you for a while otherwise. 2) The brake pads are symmetrical, so they can be installed backwards, meaning shim and backing plate toward the rotor instead of the compound. Everything else should be straight forward.

Re: tools needed for brake job

Step 1: Don't use a hammer like that to knock out the pins, you'll just damage the paint on the caliper (ask me how I know lol). Use a pin punch if you have one or an old large phillips head screwdriver.

Step 2: Don't use pliers like the ones in the vid (with serrated edges inside) to pull the pins out as you may damage the surface that sits in the caliper body (what they describe as the locking part of the pin).

Step 3: Whilst you can use a flat blade screwdriver to push the pads back, do it slowly and carefully so as not to scratch your rotors. I also suggest pushing the pads ALL the way back thereby compressing the pistons ALL the way back. This will make it much easier to fit your new pads. DONT hammer the pads to get them in, take your time and wriggle them in otherwise you'll just damage your new pads.

Step 4: You will have to apply reasonable pressure on the spring to be able to refit the pins.


The bedding in procedure is the same as what I did. However, be aware that the ceramic pads do take a bit longer to FULLY bed in.

Let us know how it goes. I am also sure other members would like a DIY thread if you have time to take the pictures.

Re: tools needed for brake job

With not many miles or corrosion, per brake, it'll take longer to jack up, take wheel/tire off, put wheel/tire on, remove jack than the actual brake pad changing part.

Re: tools needed for brake job

Paid my Dealer $89 to install pads and rotors! well worth my time they have they special miller tool for pushing the all the pistons in equally.

Zimmermotors which is my dealer also replaced my Clips and Pins and claimed them warranty. Thought they didn't need to be replaced everytime..

I'll have to double check dealership prices, I was given a quick labor price of $145
