From reference material, I have not done this procedure.

Fixed caliper;
1.press off dust cap from housing with screwdriver
2. Insert metal segment (1.1 inches thick) into fixed caliper, then carefully force pistons out against stop with compressed air. If piston is siezed due to rust, replace complete cylinder housing.
3.remove deposits on pistons with soft brass wire brush or rough cloth only. If there is noticable damage to chrome plating, replace piston.
4.Remove piston seal from groove in cylinder bore.
5. Check cylinder bores in fixed caliper for signs of wear. If bore is scored or rusty, replace complete floating caliper.
6.Lightly coat new piston seal with ATE brake cylinder paste and insert into groove in cylinder bore.
7.insert piston into bore in fixed caliper.
8. Replace dust cap by installing on piston and positioning at collar of fixed caliper, then press onto collar with pliers.

Floating Caliper:
1. Remove self locking bolts
2. Remove heat shield
3. Force out piston with compressed air and using piston turning tongs. If piston is seized due to rust, replace complete cylinder housing.
4. Remove deposits on piston with soft brass wire brush or rough cloth only. If there is noticable damage to chrome plating, replace piston.
5. Remove piston seal from groove in cylinder bore.
6.Check cylinder bore of floating caliper for wear. If bore is scored or rusty, replace complete floating caliper.
7. Lightly coat new piston seal with ATE brake cylinder paste and insert into groove in cylinder bore.
8. Replace dust cap, ensuring that cap is seated properly.
9. Install heat sheild. Retaining lugs must engage in upper piston groove.
10. Replace dust boots, ensurinig that boots are seated properly.
11. remove and clean sliding pins and guides. Coat with special grease included in sliding pin repair kit, then assemble and ensure sliding pins move easily.

It is interesting that these instructions, that I copied word for word, seem to have forgotten to replace self locking bolts, heat shield, etc, I have done many brakes and I when I read though this I had to stop and think, " OK, I guess step 11 is the end , now installation is the oposite of disassembly" If I had never done brakes before, I would have been scatching my head.

Hope this helps.
