F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6 Front Brake Pads replacement

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!

Nice DIY. Much appreciated. I will add that Cool Carbon front pads, leaving rear stock, completely eliminated all brake squeal for me. And, much less dust. I also have not noticed any decline in pedal feel. Very happy I made the switch!

So you didnt swap out the rotor? Sorry photos dont show. I have 9mm front left and 11mm rear and it squeals like holy hell. BMW told me i dont NEED a brake job but only a brake job would fix the sound.

Said i have a lip at the top of edge of the rotor and when the brakes get hot it is causing the noise.

What pads did you use and think I should try just pads for now?

Cool carbon pads on the front completely eliminated my brake noise. I left rear OEM. I also have a lip on the edge of my rotors, but I didn't change them, and have had no problems. Much less brake dust.

Looks like ECS stopped selling them for the F10 M5, but European auto source appears to sell them, both front and rear.

Thanks so much! Did you re-use the factory backplates? If so, did you apply any type of anti-sqeak lube?

What is needed to have the calipers completely removed? I am thinking of taking mine to get powder coated in another color.

So you don't need to program the calipers after pad replacement?
I just paid like $1500 for the rear brake job. My fronts make a lot of noise.

if you're talking about the conditions based servicing counter, you should reset it after you replace the wear sensors.

Typically, you replace the sensors when you replace the pads.

@straightpipeguru. Explained to so easily and will tackle it myself at pad change time, doesn't look like a big deal doing them.

Thank you for the write up! I am going to be doing this next week, and was curious if you were able to re-use the springs and pins from the previous pads (assuming no damage when removal). Its quite expensive for new hardware, more than the pads themselves. Thanks!

Just wondering if anyone know the brembo part number for the pins and retainer set for the front calipers?

Hello, I'm wandering if anyone has found a good DIY for taking the rotors off as well? I'm looking for a DIY similar to this one with the pics and instructions.

I havenít taken the rotors off yet. But Iím sure itís a basic design with two bolts holding the calipers. Once the calipers are off, you should be able to remove the rotors.
