I finally got around to doing my rear brakes and I replaced the rotors too. They were composite and the shop didn't want to turn them, they were scored and they said they couldn't guaranty the finish. I got just over 85K on the rears and they were easy as I suspected.

From TigerKK, Video on front brake job:

Apologies for the lateness of reply, only just joined!

For future reference as I guess you've already resolved this, this is a decent youtube vid showing how to change the pads including the part you got snagged on,


We had the same issue, I wasn't aware of the little nipple things on the face of the brake pad!

For you guys that do the rear pad slap without removing the top caliper pin, how do you clean and relube the top pin?

After 80,000 or more miles, it seems that the top pin will require lube to prevent it from seizing prematurely in your new pad installation.

Redpine - I always pull and lube the pins. Can't help you there.

IRSmart - you're about do but just take a look through your wheels.

The reason I asked is because on another thread (s), people claimed that the brake line interfered with removal of the top caliper pin. So, many people seem to choose just leaving the top pin in, rotating the caliper up, and avoid undoing the brake line.

It's been a while since I did mine but I did not remove the brake line. It's -11 degrees right now so I can't go out and look at it to tell you why.
