Clean dust on caliper and brake pad with a vacuum dust collector. Do not blow with compressed air.

Replacing the pads is a simple procedure:
Remove one bolt,
swing up the caliper,
remove the old pads,
pop off the shims,
put the shims on the new pads,
put the new pads in the calipers(be sure to insert the spring properly),
squeeze the piston back,
swing the caliper back into place and
reinstall the bolt. </span>
FRONT DISC BRAKE (CLZ25VD TYPE)

While the brake pad and cylinder body are separated, the piston may suddenly jump out, so do not depress the brake pedal.
It is not necessary to remove bolts on torque member and brake hose except for disassembly or replacement of the caliper assembly. In this case, hang cylinder body with a wire so that brake hose is not under tension.
Do not damage piston boot.
If any shim is subject to serious corrosion, replace it with a new one.
Always replace shims and shim covers as a set when replacing brake pads.
Keep the rotor clean of brake fluid.
Removal and Installation of Brake Pad
1. Remove tires from vehicle with power tool.
2. Remove lower sliding pin bolt (1).
3. Hang the cylinder body with a wire and remove the pad and
shim from the torque member.
When removing the pad retainer from the torque member, lift the pad retainer in the direction shown by the arrow (shown in the figure) so as not to deform it.
1. Apply PBC (Poly Butyl Cuprysil) grease or silicone -based grease between inner shim cover and inner shim.
2. Attach the inner shim and shim cover to the inner pad and the outer shim to the outer pad.
Attach the inner shim cover in the direction shown in the figure. (So that the rotor direction of rotation is away from the cutout in the shim - If you do one side at a time, this should not be a problem)
3. Apply PBC (Poly Butyl Cuprysil) grease or silicone -based
grease to the contact surface of the pad retainer and attach the
pad retainer and pad to the torque member.
Since both the inner and outer pads have pad return mechanisms
on the upper pad retainer, when attaching a pad,
make sure the pad return lever is firmly attached to the pad
4. Push the piston in so that the pad is firmly attached and attach the cylinder body to the torque member.
Using a disc brake piston tool (commercial service tool), etc., makes it easier to push in the piston.
By pushing in the piston, the brake fluid returns to the master cylinder reservoir tank. Watch the
level of the surface of the reservoir tank.
When attaching the pad retainer, attach it firmly so that it
does not float up higher than the torque member, as
shown in the figure.
5. Install lower sliding pin bolt (1), and tighten it to the specified
6. Check brake for drag.
7. Attach the tires to the vehicle.
