STEP 1. Check the wheel bearing end play.

  1. Remove the caliper assembly and suspend it with a wire.
  2. Remove the brake disc from the front hub.
  3. Attach a dial gauge as shown in the illustration, and then measure the end play while moving the hub in the axial direction.

2. Set a dial gauge as shown in the figure. Move the hub in the axial direction and measure the end play.

Limit: 0.05 mm (0.002 inch)

3. If the play exceeds the limit, disassemble hub knuckle to check each component. If the front hub bearing is faulty, replace it.

4. After checking, install the front brake disc and the front caliper assembly.
