I started to replace my brake pads. I read that this disassembly procedure was required. Anyone know if I’m doing this correctly? Thx.14E1ABB6-CAE3-4901-97D6-497B6C1B54D6.jpeg8FEE3AD3-8A29-4EF6-905E-BDE024846425.jpeg

Looks right to me, but I have an '05.

Absolutely the correct procedure Barry. Keep going.

You might have them changed in time for our rally! But be sure to bed them....

Holy cow! Can I ask why you really have it that disassembled?

He did. Look under "Why My Wife Threw Me Out Of The House" in the library card catalogue. I think it is next to Mongrel's book on Trump in all the second hand bookstores.

I know there are forum members that have bought my book, some might have even read it!

I think I deserve a personalized, signed, dedicated copy.

From the looks of it, mine was in the same exact spot a couple weeks ago!

I just realized what's going on here: You're in AZ, and this post is your notice that if you can't get it back together yourself, you're hoping the large group of GT owners / techs descending upon AZ in a few months can help (y) 🙂

Of course! Makes sense. To remove the battery so so I don’t short out the caliper sensing circuit. Thx for saving my ass!

Might be wing hydraulics/binding issue.
