AE86 Tech #86-33: Pad shim

Weather doing hub bearing, and/or differential service, requires the removal of the  brake caliper, pads, and bracket.  It’s a bit of a chore to remove the pieces and I’m a bit on the lazy side, I’ll usually take care of it in fewer steps.  Rather than doing all that nonsense.  Just undo the caliper bracket assembly and then shove a rolled up newspaper or cardboard in between the brake pads.  This will ensure they don’t fall out, while the caliper assembly is set off to the side safely while the main work is done.  Once done with installing them sick cross slotted rotors, reinstall the brake assembly.  Ready fo’ sho’.

I just slowly slide off the caliper and say 1 Hail Mary. -Dennis
