PCCB Pad Replacement - Parts needed?

Recommended Posts

Plan on replacing my PCCB pads and want to make sure I'm ordering all the correct parts.

Front:

4 caliper bolts

Set of front pads

Set of sensors (DO I NEED THESE?)

Rear:

4 caliper bolts

Set of rear pads

Set of sensors

Do I need to replace the vibration dampers? If so, what parts do I need? Front / back?

Do I need any sort of brake "gel"?

Are there any other parts that are needed? (pins / springs etc.)

Thanks

You will need some brake pad goo. If you

buy stock pads you will be OK but if you don't,

Get some zip ties to tie the sensors up and away

from the brakes. The hardest part about doing the brakes on

these cars is removing the tire. Everything else is a piece

of cake.

Not sure I understand.

I DO need "goo"? Where do I put it?

Is your comment about stock pads (which I AM going to buy) related to the sensors? Don't I need new sensors?

What about the vibration dampers? Can I just leave the existing ones in?

Thanks

If you buy the vibration dampers you do not need any "goo" - that is what they do.

You do not need sensors unless your brake wear light came on. If the light comes on it is because the sensor wire was broken - in that case you need sensors.

I still put the goo on. It goes on behind the pad. You

just paint it on the back of the pad and slip it into the caliper.
