BMW X5: Removing And Installing/Replacing Left Or Right Front Brake Caliper

BMW X5 (G05) 2019-2024 Service & Repair Manual / Brakes / Brakes - Repair Instructions / Front Brakes / Removing And Installing/Replacing Left Or Right Front Brake Caliper

IMPORTANT: The brake pad wear sensor must be replaced once it has been removed (brake pad wear sensor loses its retention capability in the brake pad).

Necessary preliminary tasks:

After completing tasks, bleed brake system.

Press clutch pedal down to floor and secure with pedal support.

NOTE: The pedal support may only be released when the brake lines are reconnected.

This prevents brake fluid from emerging from the expansion tank and air from entering the system when the brake lines are opened.

Detach retainer (1) from bracket on spring strut in upward direction.

Installation:

Retainer (1) must be felt and heard to snap into place.

Ensure correct seating in guide.

IMPORTANT: Grip brake hose at square head (2) so that connecting piece cannot rotate in retaining bracket.

Installation:

Tightening torque 34 32 1AZ.

Disconnect brake hose from brake line (1).

IMPORTANT: First tighten brake hose on brake caliper.

Move wheels into straight-ahead position.

Insert brake hose in bracket and screw onto brake pipe.

Never twist brake hose when installing it and avoid all contact with parts attached rigidly to the body.

Release screws (2).

Installation:

Tightening torque 34 11 2AZ.

OVERHAULING LEFT OR RIGHT FRONT BRAKE CALIPER (BRAKE CALIPER REMOVED)

Special tools required:

WARNING: In the following work step, large forces occur at the brake calliper piston (up to more than 2800 N). Risk of injury!

NOTE: Use repair kit, refer to BMW Parts Service.

Check guide sleeves (5), fitting repair-kit guide sleeve if necessary.

Carefully force piston out through connection bore with compressed air.

To protect piston, place a protective plate (e.g. hard wood or hard felt) in calliper recess.

Do not grip piston with fingers - risk of trapping! Press off dust sleeve (1).

Carefully remove seal (1) with special tool 00 9 316.

Clean cylinder bores and parts with alcohol and dry with compressed air.

Thoroughly inspect cylinder bore, piston and flange surfaces. Machining of cylinders and pistons is not permitted.

Install new seal.

Installation:

Apply a light coat of ATE brake cylinder paste to cylinder bore, piston and seal, Refer to BMW Service Operating Fluids.

Fit dust sleeve (1) in annular groove of piston (2).

IMPORTANT: Do not twist brake piston.

Press piston into cylinder bore.

Evenly press dust sleeve (1) onto brake calliper housing as far as it will go.

Installation:

The area between the dust sleeve and the brake calliper housing must be kept dry. It must not come into contact with Ate brake cylinder paste or brake fluid so as to ensure that the dust sleeve is perfectly seated.

PRECISION-TURNING BOTH FRONT BRAKE DISCS ON BOTH SIDES

IMPORTANT: Always precision-turn both sides of both brake discs on one axle.

Observe Max. machining dimension per friction ring side Minimum brake disc thickness (MIN TH).

Brake discs of M models (Compound brake discs) must not be machined! Only one brake pad set may be used up on brake discs which have been lathe-turned to minimum thickness (MIN TH).

Stationary brake disc lathe:

IMPORTANT: Only BMW-approved brake disc lathes may be used!

In the case of stationary brake disc lathes, the brake disc must be removed.

Please refer to the lathe manufacturer's instruction manual for the exact procedure.

Mobile brake disc lathe:

IMPORTANT: Only BMW-approved brake disc lathes may be used!

In the case of mobile brake disc lathes, only the brake calliper has must be removed.

The brake discs remain on the car.

Please refer to the lathe manufacturer's instruction manual for the exact procedure.
