Here’s another Video I just posted to YouTube on Replacing the front brake pads on a 2012 Nissan Altima.
Just a quick note on this one, I had originally missed the retainer clip that needs to go into the loop at the top of the pad.
The little metal loop is also the brake squealer or noisemaker when it scratches the brake pad, but by putting the small metal tab
into the loop, it also acts as a pad return and keeps the brake pads from dragging on the rotor.
Here’s a link to the video:
14mm socket and/or wrench
screwdriver to pry the caliper back in, or small prybar.
Or…Caliper compression tool (that I used) or a C-Clamp.
Here is the link to the Caliper Compression Tool:
And Here’s a link to the Sil-Glyde that I used in the video to lubricate the slide pins and the back of the brake pad shims:
