In this video clip, we will continue with step 11 for replacing disc brake pads. Once you’ve depressed the piston, we need to install our new brake pads. To do that we are going to install them the same way that we replaced them. Sometimes it’s kind of difficult to get them positioned just right so you need to wiggle them around a little bit and put them in there. With the outboard pad, it has those pins that hold it in so you need to make sure that you get that position just right, and push it in. On some models, you’ll have those pins on the outboard pad that you’ll need to hammer a little bit and bend them so that they hold the brake pad on.
