    Default 2001 Rear Brake Pad Replacement

    I'm putting the EBC Greens on my 2001 and I see the rear brakes are a lot different from the earlier models. Can someone tell me - do I take out the two 12mm bolts to separate the caliper assy.? (as opposed to the pin and spring in the pre 2001)

    Don't have the manual with me unfortunately

    Thanks for any help -

    Rich, make sure you have the correct tool for the job. The 2001+ require some special caliper tool. JonB usually has them in stock.

    That's about all I know about it though

    Thanks - yes I have the new caliper tool for the rears. The fronts were a breeze and I expected the rears to be as straightforward - no such luck. It's supposed to rain all weekend here in Houston and this looked like the perfect project, but my manual is in Dallas - oh well...
