Installation Notes

Brake caliper sections must never be separated.

Piston seals, dirt scraper rings and spring plates can be replaced on an assembled fixed caliper.

Heat mounting screws to about 150° C (300° F) with a hot air blower to remove the spring plates, since the screws are installed with a cement. Use new screws for installation. Coat screw threads lightly with Loctite No. 270. Brake cylinder paste Unisilikon TK 44 N 2 must be used for the installation of brake pistons.

(This is also applicable retroactively for other brake calipers when repairing.) Unisilikon paste is available from Parts (Part No.

In order to be able to check the installed position of brake calipers with installed brake pads, fixed calipers have an arrow indicating the brake disc's direction of rotation above the Porsche trademark.



X = Screws - never loosen or tighten

Replacing Brake Fluid / Bleeding Brakes and Lock Control General Information

Since brake master cylinder circuits, consisting of the push rod circuit (for front axle) and intermediate piston circuit (for rear axle) with the ABS hydraulic control unit, are completely independent of the booster circuit (brake booster and lock control), brake fluid replacing and bleeding procedures are divided into different jobs (see next page).

Use only new brake fluid DOT 4.

Total brake fluid change quantity approx. 1.6 I.

- Brake fluid change interval and fluid grade have been modified as of MY '93. For details, refer to page 47-101 (911 Carrera 2).

The brake fluid reservoir is subdivided into chambers approx. as from the middle section downwards.


1. Brake fluid change (brake, lock control and clutch) / Bleed brake master-cylinder circuits*.

2. Bleed lock cylinders and pressure lines insofar as the hydraulic system was opened after the valve block for lock actuation.

3. Bleed the lock or brake booster circuit insofar as parts of the booster circuit were replaced or if the system (also suction side of the pump assembly) was opened.

Further to 1: (Brake fluid change)*

The brake fluid change is subdivided into two steps.

1 st step: Change brake fluid of the brake master-cylinder circuits and clutch hydraulics (conventional). Also valid for bleeding of the brake master-cylinder circuits and clutch hydraulics.

2nd step: Change the brake fluid of the booster circuit (brake booster and lock control).

Operate the lock solenoid valve with system tester 9288 and remove brake fluid at each lock cylinder.

* Bleeding the brake master-cylinder circuit and the clutch hydraulics: Same procedure as for 1st step for the brake fluid change.
