After cleaning, inspecting, and repacking the wheel bearings, the rotor can be installed. Follow the shop manual procedure for bearing pre-load. THEY ARE NOT ALL THE SAME. A torque specification is usually provided. Remember, the wheel bearing and the race are made as a set. Always keep the wheel bearing with its race, even if the rotor comes with new races. Lubricate the caliper slide points with silicone brake grease. Install the new pads and retract the piston with either a C-clamp or vice grip. You may have to remove the lid from the master cylinder to do this. Before assembly of the brakes, always crack open the bleeder screws and then retighten. If the screw breaks off or can not be opened now is the time to either replace the wheel cylinder or caliper.
