Changing 6 Piston Brake Pads

To change your brake pads on Sparta 6 piston calipers, follow these directions. We recommend wearing safety glasses and gloves.

 

Please download the PDF for the complete procedure. 

Here is a brief overview.

 

6PA

 Using a 12-point M10 socket, remove one bridge bolt from the front of caliper, and one bridge bolt from the rear of the caliper

2. Pull bridge directly up away from caliper body - it is a tight fit, so this may require some force

3. Remove pad pin R-clips, then slide pad pins out of the back of the caliper body

4. Remove old pads from caliper

5. Push all 6 pistons back inside caliper

6. Insert new pads (be sure to apply pad grease to the back of the pads for NVH reduction)

7. Re-install pad pins from back of caliper

8. Re-install pad pin R-clips BETWEEN CALIPER BODY AND PAD BACKING PLATE -

DO NOT PLACE R-CLIP ON ROTOR SIDE OF PAD BACKING PLATE

9. Re-install caliper bridge - may require rubber mallet, bottom of bridge will seat against caliper when positioned correctly

10. Re-install both caliper bridge bolts, torque both bolts to 35 lb-ft (48 N-m)
