F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6 Front Brake Pads replacement

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey guys
I just did a front brake job, trying to get rid of the squealing with aftermarket brake pads, lets hope it does help at least.


This is what the brakes setup looks like after taking the rim off


Remove the top and bottom pins, just tap it out as shown


Remove the nut that is holding the caliper on (14mm)


Compress the pads to remove the caliper/pads setup
Once the caliper is out, remove the pads, clean the piston area, lube the contact points and install the new pads. Everything else is pretty much reverse of installation, its pretty easy!
