Special tools

^ Some procedures require special tools.

• Brake friction materials such as brake linings or pads may contain asbestos fibers which can lead to illnesses. Do not create dust by grinding, sanding, or cleaning the pads with compressed air. Avoid breathing any asbestos fibers or dust.

• Brake fluid is poisonous, highly corrosive and dangerous to the environment. Wear safety glasses and rubber gloves when working with brake fluid. Do not siphon brake fluid with your mouth. Immediately dean away any fluid spilled on painted surfaces and wash with water. Dispose of brake fluid properly.

• Do not reuse self-locking nuts, or fasteners. They are designed to be used only once and may fail if reused. Always replace them with new self-locking nuts.
