Service Procedure
Confirm the noise is originating from the rear disc brakes. Upon confirmation, replace the rear brake pads with the applicable part number specified in this bulletin.

Replace the rear disc brake pads by following the procedure outlined in the applicable shop manual and perform the following steps:

  1. Before replacing the rear brake pads, remove any corrosion from the pad retainer contact surface of the caliper carrier by using a wire brush (see Photo 1).
  2. Apply grease on the pad retainer contact surface of the caliper.
  3. Install the two new brake pad retainers packaged with the new brake pads onto the caliper carrier and apply grease on the pad retainers (see Photo 2).
    CAUTION: Do not apply grease onto the friction surfaces of the brake pads.
  4. Install two new brake pads and complete assembly of all components in the reverse order of removal.
    NOTE: Make sure to install the pad with the wear indicator on the inside position.
  5. Repeat the above procedure for the other side.

Ride Height Sensors

If one of these sensors is replaced, it must be calibrated after it is installed.

Ride-height sensors not only measure the position of the suspension, but also the rate of movement. They are supplied with a voltage of around 5 volts. The signal voltage is changed as a magnet moves past a coil. Most sensors have three wires — ground, power and signal.

Internally, it is difficult to damage one of these sensors. Externally, the linkage that connects the sensor to the suspension arm can also be damaged. The connector can be damaged and cause a short or open and a code will be set. If one of these sensors is replaced, it must be calibrated after it is installed.
