Replace Caliper

Removal

Siphon about half the brake fluid out of the master cylinder reservoir. Don’t allow the reservoir to empty to prevent as little air as possible to enter the system. Raise and support the vehicle safely on the jack stand. Remove the tire and wheel assembly. Unfasten the caliper’s mounting bolts. Remove the caliper assembly from the rotor/bracket, pivoting it upward and sliding it off the pin.
