13-The bearings, I use no abs version. works on perfect. (*See note down.)
14-Hand Brakes cable

*The bearings, I use no abs version. works on perfect. Attention to the "ring" I use of Abs version, why with the "ring" of bearing no abs, the caliper ¿bonnet? with the disc.
Resume...Bearings of no-abs version with the slim "ring" of abs version.
¿questions?

The pics...





Finally






Well I have problems to remove the rear arms, with a only hydraulic jack. I Mount everything in my arms. Is very easy.

No use a handbrake, use the 1th gear and tables front and rear each wheel, VERY important.

1-Fully slacken the handbrake
2-Get up the car.
3-Remove the wheel
4-Remove the drum, with a Large screwdriver and a hammer.
5-Use a 32 key and a long pipe for remove the bearing.
6-Remove the 2 allen



7-remove the rigid pipe.

Leave the drums on the floor and to late remove the hand brake cables.

Now start the fun!

1-Support with 2 allen (6mm)
2-Plate of disc with allen
3-Rear support of hose
4-bearing (280Nm)
5-disc with caliper and pad(26/25Nm and the caliper 49/60Nm, Please read this manual, page 18 to 21.
6-hose and rigid pipe

Adjust all!

Now only...get up the car(I use a ramp in the right rear wheel)

Disconect....

Install the new cables....

Now drain the liquid brake (use new liquid), and adjust the handbake cable here...



Final!!!





I hope it is useful! wink.gif

Note:Please, is very very important use the gear and tables por bloqued the car. is for you security.

Note 2: Maybe is a "how to" also? laugh.gif
