BMW X3 Service & Repair Manual: Guideline for applying brake pad paste on brake pads and brake anchor plate

BMW X3 Service & Repair Manual / Brakes / Brake testing and bleeding / Guideline for applying brake pad paste on brake pads and brake anchor plate

IMPORTANT: So as not to damage the surface coating, if possible do not mechanically clean the guide surfaces for the brake pads on the brake caliper mounting bracket. Instead, clean with brake cleaner BMW part no. 83 19 2 154 780 and apply a thin coating of brake pad paste BMW part no. 83 19 2 158 851 (3 g) or 83 19 2 158 852 (100 g).

Spread brake pad paste onto the marked surfaces using a brush!

  1. Brake pad paste 100 gr. BMW part no. 83 19 2 158 852
  2. Brake pad paste 3 gr. BMW part no. 83 19 2 158 851
  3. Brush for spreading brake pad paste over the marked areas.
