How do I install brake heat shields?
In a few rare exceptions our heat shields come with tabs (visible on the schematic diagram for the model) that you should bend over the brake pad in order to hold it in place. If you are using a shield model with tabs to bend in place we recommend lightly heating each tab with a standard torch immediately prior to bending over the pad edge for best results. This is easiest to do if you secure the pad and shim in a vise, using scrap to protect the pad surface.
We recommend that a brake lubricant such as our Permatex High Temperature Ceramic Lubricant be applied to the areas where our titanium brake backing plate makes contact with the caliper mounting points, caliper pistons and brake backing plate (in that order of priority).
