Thanks for the write up. Just finished my front, and ill finish my back tomorrow. What I differently is for the front I removed the bottom 22mm bolt, and just loosened the top. Turned the wheel out (as someone mentioned) to get more clearance, and used the 3 inch C clamps to compress the pistons. Didn't bother removing the brake line. Thanks again.

This statement can be easily misconstrued if you don't look at the picture first.

I hope this gets updated, or another member writes up a new DIY. I'm a visual learner, so pictures make such a huge difference; a video would be even better. I'm due for a brake pad change pretty soon.

You might like these:
Note: This is only for the SPORT models (G37S) with the bigger brakes.

I have standard non-sport brakes and am due for a front brake job shortly. I'll do a DIY if no one gets to it first. My brake jobs are immaculate.

Not a G, but I figured it's close.


In the past, I attempted to help a friend with a pad/rotor change on his G coupe. The fronts had some sort of allen key bolt which we didn't have the correct tool for, and in the rears, our tools kept interfering with suspension components. Does the G sedan have the same setup as the G coupe?
