In this clip, we will discuss step 12 and replacing disc brake pads. What you’ll need to do is remove the bungee cords, or coat hanger, if you chose to use that, holding up your caliper and you need to slip it back onto the rotor. You might need to wiggle it around a little bit and try a couple of times. Sometimes it’s a little tricky just to get it back on correctly. Next, you need to replace the caliper bolts. Make sure you turn in the correct way. Righty-tighty. Lefty-loosey. Sometimes it’s a little tricky to get these to catch so you just need to kind of wiggle it around until it catches.
