Step 11: Re Install Brake Caliper

First take one of the old brake pads and place it on the circular piece of the caliper (lengthwise), then take the C-clamp and place one side touching the old brake pad and the other on the far end of the caliper. Tighten the c clamp until the circular bit is flush with the side of the caliper. Then place the caliper back in position and tighten the bolts to the required torque with the torque wrench.

When depressing the caliper piston it's a good idea to open the bleeder screw as forcing fluid back through the system can damage the butterfly valves in the ABS unit.
