Brake Pad Installation Procedure
Install brake pads properly. Be sure pads are securely positioned in the caliper.
Check Brake Fluid. Flush and replace, as needed.
Check all hydraulic parts for excess wear and tear.
Check rotor for deep grooves or scoring. Resurface or replace rotor, as needed.
If rotors do not need resurfacing, then contamination from the previous brake pads must be removed. Sand rotors with 130-grit sandpaper using moderate pressure. Use soap and water to clean rotor surface after sanding. Rotors should be free and clear of oil, grease and brake fluid.
Inspect calipers for freedom of movement. Lubricate where necessary.
