According to the Nissan Service Manual, Poly-butyl cuprasil grease is required. I would recommend that you use exactly what the manual calls for. The instructions that I posted came from the service manual. Note that the PBC grease is rather pricey - about $50.00 for a jar at the Nissan parts counter. This will last you a lifetime and then some.I have a question, there is a difference between both tutorials. In one, it is mentioned to use PBC grease or silicone based grease, but in the other one nothing is used.
Does anyone know if the grease is necesary for the front brake pad change?
I also read that brake cleaner is needed, but that isnt mentioned in the tutorial either, is it needed?
