If a squealing noise occurs while braking, inspect the brake pads.
1. REMOVE REAR WHEEL
Remove the wheel and temporarily fasten the rotor disc with the hub nuts.
2. INSPECT PAD LINING THICKNESS
Check the pad thickness through the cylinder inspection hole and replace pads if not within specification.
Standard thickness: 10.0 mm (0.394 in.) Minimum thickness: 1.0 mm (0.039 in.)
3. REMOVE CYLINDER FROM TORQUE PLATE
(a) Remove the installation bolt from the torque plate.
(b) Remove the brake cylinder and suspend it so the hose is not stretched.
HINT: Do not disconnect the brake hose.
4. REMOVE FOLLOWING PARTS
(a) Two anti-squeal springs
(b) Two brake pads
(c) Four anti-squeal shims
(d) Two pad wear indicators (el Two pad support plates
5. CHECK ROTOR DISC THICKNESS (See step 2 on page BR-36)
6. CHECK ROTOR DISC RUNOUT (See step 3 on page BR-36)
7. INSTALL TWO PAD SUPPORT PLATES
Install the two pad support plates to the torque plate.
8. INSTALL NEW PADS
(a) Install the new pad wear indicators to the lower side of the pads.
(b) Install the anti-squeal shim No.1 to the pads.
(c) Install the pads onto each pad support plate.
NOTE: Install the pads so the wear indicator is at the bottom side.
(d) Install the anti-squeal shim No.2 over shim No.1.
(e) Install the two anti-squeal springs.
NOTICE: Do not allow oil or grease to get on the rubbing face.
9. INSTALL CYLINDER
<a) Draw out a small amount of brake fluid from the reservoir.
<b) Press in piston with a hammer handle or an equivalent.
HINT: Always change the pad on one wheel at a time as there is a possibility of the opposite piston flying out.
(c) Insert the brake cylinder carefully so the boot is not wedged.
(d) Install and torque the installation bolt. Torque: 200 kg-cm (14 ft-lb. 20 N-m)
10. INSTALL REAR WHEEL
11. CHECK THAT FLUID LEVEL IS AT MAX LINE
3. REMOVE PADS
