1. Inspect the front brakes for any signs of abnormal wear or damage. Repair as
2. Resurface the front brake rotors with a DaimlerChrylsler approved on-car brake lathe.
If an on-car lathe is not available at the dealership, the rotor resurfacing must be sublet
to a facility with an approved on car lathe.
3. Remove the calipers.
4. Clean the caliper adapter and lubricate the adapter and anti-rattle springs with
MOPAR brake grease.
5. Install new calipers, p/n's 05134582AB and 05134583AB.
6. Replace the front pads and anti-rattle springs with the appropriate part number listed in
the Parts Required Section above.
7. Bleed the system.
8. Mark one wheel stud on each side with a dab of paint or suitable marker.
NOTE: Wheel stud torque is critical to the success of the repair. the following
procedure is intended to identify excessive rotor distortion which could be
caused by improper wheel stud torque.
9. Install the wheel and pre-tighten the lug nuts in a cross pattern to: 70 Nm (50 ft. lbs.)
then final the lug nuts in a cross pattern to: **183 Nm (135 ft. lbs.)** and mark the
wheel at the same location as the marked wheel stud.
10. Set up a dial indicator to measure mounted rotor runout . Place the dial indicator
plunger against the inner machined rotor face, visible between the brake caliper and
the front splash shield(
Fig. 1). Rotate the wheel and tire assembly two turns and take
runout measurement. If the measurement is less than .050 mm (.002 in.) no further
action is required. If the measurement is greater than .050 mm (.002 in.) remove the
lug nuts and relocate the wheel one stud clockwise, tighten the lug nuts as described
in step 6 and check the runout again. Do not remove any brake parts. Repeat step 7
for each wheel location until you achieve the lowest mounted runout. Minimum
mounted rotor runout will be achieved by moving the wheel, not the rotor.
Thanks for the DiY.
But can you explain me what parts are broken in the caliper?
Because normaly i think there cant be a probleme.
My caliper are clean and free.
Today i check again my steering.
When i touch the steering box, i can feel there is something wrong.
I can feel and see that the steering box goes up and down and make a litle nois. The nois is a klong or klick.
Sorry its hard for me to explain this to you, because i have not the right english words in my head ;-)
