Instructions for replacing the brake disc

Please read and follow all instructions carefully. You’ll find the same instructions in the brake disc pack. Remember to keep them for the entire product life cycle. Hand them over to the new owner if you sell your vehicle.
The instructions are just general guidelines, as brake discs may differ from those illustrated below.
Replacement procedure 
The procedure described is for one wheel, and must be repeated on the other wheel of the axle.
Disassembling the wheel
1. Remove the wheel
Removing the brake pad
2. Remove the pads and pull back the piston(s). Use the dedicated tool! 
Disassembling the brake caliper
3. Remove the caliper from its mount.
DANGER! Do not disconnect the brake fluid supply line from the caliper. Suspend the caliper, making sure the supply line is not pulled taut.
Disassembling the wheel hub if necessarya
4. If necessary, disassemble the wheel hub before removing the disc. Then disassemble the brake disc.
Cleaning the new brake disc mounting face
5. Clean the mounting face on the new disc.
WARNING! Do not soil the mounting face with oil or grease.
Cleaning the disc mounting face on the wheel hub
6. Thoroughly clean the disc mounting face on the wheel hub, removing any deposits and rust; check that the surface is not damaged or deformed, and restore it to the proper condition if necessary.
Checking the rotation and end float of bearings
7. Check for smooth rotation and correct end float of the wheel bearings.
Refitting the wheel hub
8. If the wheel hub has not been removed: fit the new disc to the wheel hub and secure with the fastening screw; adjust the bearing where required, following the vehicle manufacturer’s instructions.
Wheel hub and disc assembly
9. If the wheel hub was removed in step 4 (fig. D): assemble the hub and disc, tightening the fastening screws at the specified torque. Fit the hub-disc assembly onto the wheel axle, adjust the bearing and complete fitting operations according to the vehicle manufacturer’s instructions.
Read the article about the correct tightening torque.
Checking the runout with the metrology kit
10. Check lateral runout of the disc using the metrology kit; the dial gauge must be positioned as illustrated, 5mm from the outer diameter. Secure the disc with a number of wheel nuts to simulate the condition in which the wheel is mounted.  The maximum value of runout per full revolution of the disc is: 0.10 mm for cars - 0.12 mm for commercial vehicles. If necessary, remove the disc and refit it to the wheel hub in a different position, then repeat the measurement.


WARNING! Conduct this test with care. A runout value higher than indicated will lead to abnormal wear and generate vibration when braking.

Checking the runout of the mounting face
11. If the runout measurement is unacceptable, measure the runout of the wheel hub mounting face; if necessary, replace the hub and refit the disc.

WARNING! The permissible runout value for the wheel hub mounting face is approximately half that specified for the disc.
Refitting the brake caliper
12. Refit the caliper to its mount; in the case of a floating caliper, check for smooth sliding action of the body on the guides.

CAUTION! Check that rubber parts are not damaged. Replace if necessary.
Refitting the new pads
13. Fit the new pads, with the related springs and pins. Grease the back and edges of the pads where indicated.
Connect the wear indicator, if installed.
Activating the brake pedal
14. Operate the pedal to bring the pads closer to the disc. Repeat this process until the pedal travel is as it should be.
15. Check the level of brake fluid in the reservoir, topping up if necessary.
16. Refit the wheel and tighten the wheel nuts as indicated by the vehicle manufacturer or as in the Brembo catalogue.
17. Balance the wheel.
Testing and running in

Road test the vehicle, taking care not to stab at the brakes or keep the pedal depressed for more than 3 seconds; make sure there is no noise or vibration from the brakes.

The user of the vehicle should run in the new discs and pads for at least 200 km, applying the brakes gently and sparingly, and without activating the ABS.


CAUTION! If new brakes are not properly run in, the braking system could be prevented from operating efficiently
