DIY Replacement Rear Brake Caliper 2000 Infiniti I30

This is a DIY for a 2000 Infiniti I30 driver side rear brake caliper replacement 

DO NOT REMOVE THE BRAKE HOSE AT THIS POINT - You first remove the emergency brake cable from the back then you can remove the brake caliper completely then lay it on the ground still connected to the brake hose .

Once you have the caliper off then you can which in my case I put new rear brake pads on the vehicle - Properly lubricating the parts and replacing the old parts with the brake caliper kit provided .

Then you can connect your brake hose to the caliper and the reason for this is because then your less likely to bleed the whole system by doing this you lose little brake fluid and you can just bleed what you replaced .

Connect emergency brake cable and then inspect the whole system 

Then you can bleed the caliper that you replaced - If you feel spongy then you bleed the whole system starting with the rear which is most farthest from the brake master cylinder
