caliper replacement

Post by bearinthebush » Wed Nov 07, 2018 7:07 pm

hi, i just bought a new front brae caliper for my l300 and I dont understand how to pop it open... There is a bolt on the bottom witch is easy to remve but the top bolt doesnt seems to have a nut or screw head. its a blank round cap and i wonder how to remove it as the bolt is screwed in but dont have any head to unscrew it. probably a dumb question but i looked online and didnt find any tutorial or topics concerning that issue.. thanks in advance

Im pretty sure its just a pin that slides out.

yes, the upper is a guide pin/slide... the caliper will slide off it w/ the lower bolt removed.

Indeed. Remove lower bolt, swing caliper up until it clears the brake disc, slide caliper back.
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.
