REAR****** IF YOU HAVE 4 WHEEL DISC Open the hood of your car. Locate the master cylinder and remove about two thirds of the brake fluid. A turkey baster is a good tool for this. Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly. Remove the caliper guide and lock pins. Slide the caliper off of the disc brake and suspend it near the disc brake with a small bungee cord or coat hanger. Suspend the caliper housing so that you do not damage the brake hose. Take the brake pads, spring clip and shims out of the caliper. Hand tighten the wheel lug nuts to the wheel studs to keep the rotor from moving while you work on the caliper. Install Rear Brake Pads Place a large C-clamp over the body of the brake caliper. Place the clamp ends against the rear of the caliper body and the outboard pad or a wood block placed against the caliper piston. Tighten the clamp until the piston is completely compressed into the caliper bore. Remove the clamp and the old pad or wood block. Replace the caliper on the rotor. If you pivoted the caliper instead of removing it, pivot the caliper down to its original position. Use high temperature silicone lubricant to lubricate the caliper guide and lock pins. Replace them in the caliper. Tighten the guide and locking pins to 32 foot pounds (43 Nm). Replace the wheel assembly (tire). Lower the car to the ground. Press the brake pedal two thirds of its travel distance and release. Wait 15 seconds and depress the pedal the same distance. This seats the brake pads. Do this several times before trying to move your car.
