What you will need
- Start by putting your Mitsubishi Outlander in the park and setting the emergency brakes. Next, loosen the lug nuts but don't remove them.
- Jack up your Mitsubishi Outlander. Secure the car with jack stands.
- Remove the front wheel from the car.

- Fold out the brake caliper and remove the old brake pads and shims.
- Install the new brake pads. Apply a small amount of grease where the brake pads slide on the brake caliper. Do not apply brake grease on the brake pad surface or brake rotor.
- Install the brake caliper. Apply grease to the guide pins.
- Torque guide pins to 31 Nm or 23 ft-lb.
