Inspection

Inspection

Rear Brake Disc Thickness Check

  1. Check the brake pads for wear and fade.
  2. Check the brake disc for damage and cracks.
  3. Remove all rust and contamination from the surface, and measure the disc thickness at 8 points, at least, of same distance (5mm) from the brake disc outer circle.

Brake disc thickness

Standard: 10 mm (0.39 in)

Service limit: 8.4 mm (0.33 in)

Deviation: less than 0.01 mm (0.0004 in)

  1. If wear exceeds the limit, replace the discs and pad assembly left and right of the vehicle.

Rear Brake Pad Check

  1. Check the pad wear. Measure the pad thickness and replace it, if it is less than the specified value.

Pad thickness

Standard value: 10.0 mm (0.3937 in.)

Service limit: 2.0 mm (0.0787 in.)

  1. Check that grease is applied, to sliding contact points. Check for metal damage to the pad and backing.

Rear Brake Disc Runout Check

Rear Brake Disc Runout Check

  1. Place a dial gauge about 5mm (0.2 in.) from the outer circumference of the brake disc, and measure the runout of the disc.

Brake disc runout

Limit: 0.05 mm (0.002 in.) or less (new one)

  1. If the runout of the brake disc exceeds the limit specification, replace the disc, and then measure the runout again.
  2. If the runout does not meet the limit specification, remove the disc, turn it 180º and reinstall. Then check the runout of the brake disc again.
  3. If the runout cannot be corrected by changing the position of the brake disc, replace the brake disc.

Installation

  1. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Warning

With EPB

When installing, press and rotate the piston into the caliper body until it is fully retracted.

Without EPB

  • Rotate the caliper piston clockwise by using a SST (09580-0U000). Check the groove position.
  • Check the groove position.
  1. After filling the brake fluid in the reservoir, perform the air bleed.

    (Refer to the Brake system - "Brake Bleeding Procedure")

Warning

  • For the brake pad to locate on the normal operation position, depress the brake pedal halfway several times until the brake pedal gains resistance.
  • After disassembling/assembling the caliper body or replacing the brake caliper, parking brake cable or brake disc, re-adjust the parking brake.
