If you haven’t cleaned the retainer pin with soap and water, now is a good time. If any corrosion is present on the smooth part of the pin, use steel wool to smooth it out. If you have brake grease available, you can apply a thin coat to the smooth part of the pin.

Make sure the pin goes through the holes on the brake pads, and thread the pin into the housing.

Tighten down the retainer pin to 11-14 ft-lbs (15-20 N*m) with the torque wrench.
