2005 Nissan Altima Brake Repair Instructions

60

Over the past few days, I’d been hearing a pretty nasty squealing sound from the front of my 2005 Nissan Altima, and when I finally got the chance to pull the front wheels off, I found that my brake pads were pretty low. I found that replacing the pads on my Altima is like most cars, and I got the job done on my day off, and in time for the game.

Removal

When I removed the brake pads, I carefully pried the shim from the shim cover and shim from the inner brake pad, and the shim from the outer brake pad, using a flat-head screwdriver. Since my new pads did not come with the shims and shim covers, I saved these for reuse on the new pads.
