This is my first how-to so be gentle
How to replace the front discs and brake pads.
- ATD drilled and vented sport discs
- EBC Greenstuff Brake Pads
Remove both front wheels.
Remove the two screws from the disk.
Remove the flange bolt while holding the calliper pin with a wrench. Be careful not to damage the pin boot.
Remove the brake hose mounting bolt
Remove piston. Press in the piston with the brake calliper piston compressor so the calliper will fit over the brake pads and hang him out of the way with some rope.
Remove the brake calliper bracket mounting bolts (sorry no picture)
Remove break-discs by hitting them careful with a hammer. Clean the front hub and apply copper grease to the front hub.
Install the new disc and insert the two screws
Install the brake calliper bracket and tighten the bolts with max 108 Nm.
Take the new brake pads and apply a thin coat of copper grease to the top en bottom edges and the thin coat of copper grease on the flat side of the outer pad.
Clean the piston shim and apply a thin coat of copper grease. Place the shim in the calliper body.
Install the caliper by sliding it gently over the brake pads. Insert calliper bolts and tighten them with max 35 Nm.
Re-install the brake hose mounting bolt and tighten them with max 35 Nm.
Re-Install the wheels. Put your Civic back on the floor, start your engine and pump the break a few times.
Go for a short drive to "feel" the braking.
and your done
Remember not to brake hard for around 125miles / 200KM to let the discs set.
