Default Re: Replacement of front brake pads and rotor

Looking at other brake repair info online, it seems they are installed in the caliper bracket, and the "guide bolts" would screw into them.......? But I may be misunderstanding something.

Do the Bosch front brakes on the T1N have these slider pins? And if so, should they be removed, cleaned, lubed, and re-inserted.....?

Are the "guide bolts" the slider pins in this application, and in turn, they should be lubed when re-installing?

If anyone has a photo, that would be a huge help.

Thanks! (and sorry if this is a stupid question)
Yes, the guide bolts (#3) are the guide pins. I did lubricate them, but also put loctite on threads. Since you have to push them through the guides, you have to put loctite on what they thread into and lubricate them, making sure none of the lube gets on the threads. Takes a little care to keep the two from contaminating each other.
