  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.
