If only the caliper assembly is to be removed, it is not necessary to remove the wheel. To remove the caliper assembly proceed as follows: Remove hose clamp. Remove 4 bolts (1) and washers (2). Remove outer caliper half (3) and damper spring (3A). Remove mounting pin (4) and inner caliper half (5). Remove brake pad mounting pins (6) and brake pads (7). Check the friction pads for wear, damage, and looseness. Replace both pads if thickness of friction material is less than 1/16 in. Check to see that the metal backing plate is flat.
