Brake Pad Change

Have just received new pads from Beemerboneyard.com (amazing place to find things at great prices) and want to get them on.

Wondering if somewhere on this fantastic site there are step by step instructions for changing brake pads ... front and rear?

If so, please send me the link and I'll get to work !!

Many thanks,
Keir

Cool

Keir, start perusing some of the threads in this search result I got from "change brake pads":
http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/search.php?searchid=616349

There are several good ones in there. One item of note is that the rear pads are dirt simple regardless of what year LT you have, but the front ones are a little more difficult on the early model years (99-01?) since they do require removal of the calipers in order to replace the pads.

The rear pads and the front ones on the newer (integrated systems, or calipers that have the "BMW" label on them) can be replaced by simply removing some clips and the retaining pins. Check out the threads for better info, and Good Luck!

Rears are very easy to do, - just pull the tin cover and pins and they come right out !!

I have a set of nearly new (500 +/- miles) on set of stock Brembo Rear brake pads if anyone is interested... I had squealing issue on my 05 and replaced with aftermarket that did not fix it after buying new set of stock pads.

$25 includes shipping to anywhere in the lower 48 USA
