1986-1993 Volvo 240 Front Brake Caliper Replacement

1986-1993 Volvo 240 front brake caliper replacement.

Replace a broken brake caliper or upgrade to bigger calipers for increased braking performance.

Removing the caliper requires disconnecting the brake hose, which will lead to losing brake fluid. When you install the new calipers you will need to bleed the brakes to remove any air from the brake fluid lines.

Use an open-end wrench to loosen the 11 mm fitting where the brake hose attaches to the caliper. Brake fluid will come out of the loosened brake hose. You should keep a bucket or pan nearby to collect it.
