Hi to all im new here and have a problem i have a 3.0 v6 coupe and i need to change the front brake caliper. I have a new one but i cant get any info on the correct way to take this off and fit a new one and was also wondering if there is a certain way to do this with abs brakes.

welcome to the site


remove the brake cap on the reservoir
fit a glove or balloon over the reservoir and fit the cap from a bleed kit - this stops air coming in the top and allowing the brake fluid coming out the pipe.
remove the calliper as if you were changing the pads
remove the brake line
fit the new calliper - bleed nipple to the top.
refit the brake line.
remove the balloon and bleed the brakes through.

its also worth tapping the calliper with a rubber mallet when bleeding to endure all the small bubbles are out.
and in place of the balloon then you can use a line clamp.

re the abs, just watch you dont hit the sensor when removing the calliper
