Yep, lubed them up (although there was tons in there to begin with) and anti-seized the bolts. The problem that I had was the bolt snapped off inside the slide pin. So I needed to replace the pin assembly. It's all good now though. I can't believe my dealer wanted $850 to do it. Cost me roughly $225 and a bit of frustration.beezel said:Did you clean the slides and lube them up with new lube.
otherwise you will get sticking slide pins.
Did you lube the hub surfaces as well. Makes it easier to get off.
and we get new hardware with our LR pads. I always replace the bolts. I got tons of spares.
Actually, the cost did not include new rotors, they were going to turn mine for some reason, they said they have very little wear.beezel said:Well the dealer also wanted to replace the pads and rotors.
For some odd reason The brits dont want you to cut the rotors.
If they gave us specs for them then perhaps. but they dont so we just replace them.
and if they start pulsating then replace the rotors regardless.
oh and your lucky about your tires. basically every wheel i take off comes off with some persuasion.
Tell me about the abs sensors behavior with these pads/rotors.Do they trigger the abs lights on easily or not at all? Just want to know when I replace mine.Disco Mike said:You might want to check out Atlantic British, I am using their kevlar pads on slotted and drilled rotors and wouldn't run anything else. Very little dust, better stopping power and I have a good 25,000 miles on them with 50% remaining.
