PostSubject: The RIGHT way to do pads   Thu Apr 28, 2011 11:04 am

When an online parts vendor sends me an email I usually open & review briefly.
If there's anything that catches my interest, I go further, if not ...delete.
I just grabbed some pads @ AZ for Matts car (I'm buttoning it up) so when I saw the pads link I checked it out.
I clicked the "How to install brake pads" & thought I might share it with you.
I've been wasting so much of my time doing it MY way
Here's thier method.....

Installing Brake Pads on Your Vehicle
Once you’ve purchased your new brake pads from AutoAnything, you’ll want to make sure you know how to install brake pads on your ride.
Don’t succumb to the high labor cost at the local body shop when you can install your new brake pads yourself.
Brake pads installation is easy to complete, and simply requires the use of common tools, like an open-ended wrench, an Allen wrench, a lug wrench and a hammer.

After you’ve jacked your vehicle up and removed the wheel, you’ll need to remove the brake caliper so that the brake pad will slip right out through the top.
The brake pad should slip out easily, although you may need to coax it out with a hammer.
Once the old brake pads removed, slip your replacement brake pads into place.
You’ll need to compress the brake piston and then you can easily slide the brake caliper assembly over the new brake pads.
Replace the bolts, put your wheel back on, and your ride will be ready to go—or should I say, stop?

No need to thank me.......yes, I'm a little bored right now

I think that would work for about none of the cars that I have worked on...ever. It does work on a Polaris snowmobile though....
