Introduction: ZOPS and ZOH-T Hydraulic Brakes
The Zero Offset Pin Slide (ZOPS) disc brake caliper assemblies were in production prior to June 3,
2002.
The Zero Offset Harmonized – Truck (ZOH-T) disc brake caliper assemblies were introduced
into production on June 3, 2002. The new caliper assembly has differences from its predecessor, the
ZOPS caliper assembly, as follows:
•
•
Anchor plate leading and trailing pins: The trailing pin has identification notches and a rubber
bushing (reference page 11).
Caliper mounting bolts: The bolt is longer, dark in color, has a flange head and fine threads,
and is tightened to a higher torque. The bolt may be plain or have an adhesive patch.
NOTE
•
The ZOH-T anchor plate leading and trailing pins and caliper mounting bolts are
NOT separately interchangeable or backward compatible with the original ZOPS
anchor plate leading and trailing pins and caliper mounting bolts due to the
change in the bolt length and thread form (from coarse thread to fine thread).
•
When changed out as a complete set, the ZOH-T anchor plate leading and
trailing pins and caliper mounting bolts are interchangeable and can be used in
anchor plate and caliper housings produced prior to June 3, 2002.
•
The ZOH-T leading and trailing pin designs are unique and MUST be installed in
the correct anchor plate position.
•
Leading pin must be installed in the leading anchor plate location.
•
Trailing pin must be installed in the trailing anchor plate location. Reference
page 25 Figure 24 for leading and trailing definition.
•
Because your vehicle may have had prior brake servicing, vehicles built prior to
June 3, 2002, may have been upgraded to the ZOH-T pin and bolt design.
•
The correct anchor plate leading and trailing pins and caliper
mounting bolts and bolt torque must be used. Brake function
could be affected and result in loss of brake function and loss
of vehicle control, which could cause personal injury, death, or
vehicle, component or property damage.
For additional details, refer to the Anchor Plate Leading and Trailing Pins and Caliper Mounting
Bolt section of this manual.

General Description
This section provides basic information about the components that comprise a hydraulic disc brake
and their intended function. Service information is contained later in this manual.
The Bosch hydraulic pin slide disc brake is a two-piston sliding caliper brake and is used at both
front and rear wheel vehicle locations. Each pin slide caliper disc brake wheel installation is made up
of three major components as shown in Figure 2.
• Caliper assembly
• Anchor plate assembly
• Brake pads CALIPER

Caliper Assembly
The disc brake caliper assembly is just one part of the entire vehicle brake system. The caliper
assembly contains two hydraulic piston bores. The piston bores contain pistons, piston seals and
piston boots. The caliper assembly attaches to and slides on sealed pins located in the anchor plate,
hence the term sliding or pin slide caliper assembly. The front anchor plate is mounted on the front
steering knuckle flange, while the rear anchor plate mounts on the rear axle flange.
The caliper assembly comes in two sizes: 2x73mm and 2x66mm. Either size may be on the front or
rear vehicle location, based on GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating). Refer to vehicle manufacturer’s
vehicle specifications for details.
The main components that make up the ZOH-T pin slide caliper assembly are:
• Caliper housing
• Housing bore grease
• Pistons
• Piston seals
• Piston boots
• Bleed screw
• Tube seats
A cross section view of a disc brake caliper assembly, as shown in Figure 3, indicates the location of
the components.

Caliper Housing
The caliper housing, as shown in Figure 4, is the principle component of the caliper assembly. It
forms the supporting structure that withstands the applied hydraulic pressure. It is produced as a
casting and is then machined to final form. The material of the caliper housing is ductile iron and
has a protective coating to provide additional environmental protection. The disc brake caliper
housing straddles the rotor, the inner pad and the outer pad.
MACHINED
SURFACES
NOTE: CALIPER HOUSING
PISTON BORE
•
The machined surfaces of the
caliper housing must be clean and
free of dirt, debris, lubricants and
foreign materials.
•
If damage or defects are found,
replace as required.
Figure 4. Caliper Housing
Piston
The piston, as shown in Figure 5, is cylindrical in shape and is retained within the caliper housing
piston bore. The function of the piston is to react to the applied hydraulic brake fluid pressure by
sliding out of the caliper housing piston bore. It is this movement of the piston out of the caliper
housing that results in pad contact with the rotor. The contact of the pad with the rotor produces
torque and the braking action of the vehicle. The piston is molded and machined from a phenolic
material and has a stainless steel cap.
NOTE: PISTON
PISTON
PISTON CAP
Figure 5. Piston Assembly
•
The piston must be intact and free
of pitting, scoring or excessive
wear. If damage or defects are
found, replace as required.
•
Clean pistons with isopropyl or
denatured alcohol before visual
inspection.
Pin Slide Disc Brake Service Manual
Piston Seal
The piston seal, as shown in Figure 6, is a rectangular cross section seal made of a rubber
compound and is compatible with DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid. The piston seal is placed in a
groove that is machined into the caliper housing piston bore. The piston seal’s function is to
provide a hydraulic seal between the piston and the caliper housing piston bore. The piston seal
also aids in retracting the piston (i.e., pulls the piston back into the housing bore) upon brake
release. This retraction allows clearance for the pads to be pushed back from the rotor.
NOTE: PISTON SEAL
•
Never reuse old piston seals once the caliper assembly
has been disassembled.
•
Dip new piston seals in clean DOT 3 or DOT 4 hydraulic
brake fluid prior to installing seal into the housing seal
groove.
•
Once the seal is in position in the housing piston seal
groove, gently work around the groove with clean fingers
to confirm that the seal is properly seated and that it is
not twisted or rolled.
•
Piston seals must not come into contact with
commercially available brake cleaners, or they will be
damaged. Use only isopropyl or denatured alcohol during
any brake servicing.
Figure 6. Piston Seal
Piston Boot
The piston boot, as shown in Figure 7, is located at the face (or opening) of the caliper housing piston
bore. The piston boot is retained at its outside diameter in the housing and at its inside diameter by
a groove in the piston. The function of the piston boot is to provide a seal between the environment
and the caliper bore. The boot is produced via a molding operation of a rubber material around a
stamped steel insert. The insert, located near the outside diameter of the piston boot, provides piston
boot retention within the caliper housing.

Figure 7. Piston Boot
NOTE: PISTON BOOT
•
Never reuse old piston boots.
•
Visually inspect new piston boots for any cuts, tears or damage. Replace
as required. Verify that they are fully seated in caliper housing.
•
Piston boots must not come into contact with commercially available brake
cleaners or they will be damaged. Use only isopropyl or denatured alcohol
during any brake service.
Pin Slide Disc Service Manual
Bleed Screw and Tube Seat
The function of the bleed screw, as shown in Figure 8, is to provide a means to release entrapped air
within the circuit of the brake system containing the caliper. Purging the entrapped air within the
brake system is commonly referred to as bleeding the brake system. The function of the tube seat is
to provide a seal between caliper housing and the bleed screw or hydraulic brake line tube fitting.

required.
Disc Brake Pads
There are two pads per caliper assembly, and they are referred to as the inner pad and outer pad. The
terms inner and outer pad are derived from their position relative to the caliper. The inner pad is
between the caliper piston and rotor. The outer pad is between the rotor and caliper housing legs. The
pad is made of friction material and a steel backing plate. The pad is also commonly referred to as
the shoe and lining assembly.
Some pads have slots or chamfers (machined areas), as shown in Figure 9, which are used to abate
noise.
Disc brake pads come in two sizes: thicker friction material pads for the 2x73mm and thinner
friction material pads for the 2x66mm calipers. The steel backing plate is the same for both 2x73mm
and 2x66mm pads.
•
Always wear a respirator when working around brakes or brake lining
dust.

Disc Brake Pads (continued)
•
The correct anchor plate leading and trailing pins, caliper mounting
bolts and bolt torque must be used. Brake function could be affected
and result in loss of brake function and loss of vehicle control, which
could cause personal injury, death, or vehicle, component or property
damage.
There are three (3) types of lining materials available for the Bosch ZOPS and ZOH-T hydraulic
disc brakes: PFC-50-EF, HX-7A1-EE and HX-402-EE.
•
The PFC-50-EF lining material was developed for heavy duty conditions and applications.
The pads are chamfered on each end of each pad. The pads are interchangeable from inner
to outer side of rotor, however, if pads are removed and then reinstalled, the pads should
be placed in same position from which the pads were removed. This will result in best
performance of pad lining life.
•
The HX-7A1-EE lining material was developed for heavy duty conditions and applications.
As a result, some lining life compromise may occur if used in light duty applications. The
pads are chamfered and are marked with an arrow and the word FORWARD (refer to Figure
10) to identify proper installation on the inner and outer side of the rotor. Because these pads
are chamfered, they are NOT interchangeable between the inboard and outboard locations.
Recommended Application for PFC-50-EF Duty or HX-7A1-EE Heavy Lining Material
• PFC-50-EF or HX-7A1-EE is recommended for most applications. This includes normal
to heavier duty cycles with vehicle GVWRs typically greater than 26,000 lb. Typically, these
vehicles will operate in medium to heavy duty cycles with hilly to mountainous terrain, stopand-go driving, quick stops from higher speeds, etc. This results in the linings being exposed
to brake temperatures greater than 450В°F for prolonged periods of use.
Arrow indicates rotor rotation for a
vehicle moving in a forward direction.
As shown, these pads would be used
on the left side of the vehicle.

NOTE: DISC BRAKE PADS
• Be sure the friction
material side of the pad
is against the rotor.
Outer Pad
Figure 10. HX-7A1-EE Brake Pads
Pin Slide Disc Service Manual
Disc Brake Pads (continued)
• HX-402-EE lining material was developed for use in light duty applications. The pads are NOT
chamfered and ARE interchangeable from the inner to outer side of the rotor on the same wheel.
Recommended Application for HX-402-EE Light Duty Lining Material
• HX-402-EE is recommended for light duty applications ONLY where the GVWR is typically
26,000 lb. or below and the brake linings will not see prolonged exposure to lining temperatures
greater than 450В°F. In addition to the lighter vehicle weight classes, the HX-402-EE is
recommended for flat to slightly rolling terrain and a mixture of urban and rural driving that
does not contain excessive stop-and-go operational duty cycle that results in prolonged lining
temperatures greater than 450Вє F.
NOTE: HX-402-EE MATERIAL
•
Because this lining material was developed specifically for light duty
application, it is very important to understand and follow the vehicle
manufacturer’s recommended application guidelines.
•
Improper vehicle application could result in unacceptable lining life.
• Using HX-402-EE on vehicles with GVWR (gross vehicle weight
rating) greater than 26,000 lb. could affect stopping distance.
APPLICATION NOTICE
•
HX-402-EE is generally used for light-duty applications where the HX-7A1-EE
standard/heavy duty lining may experience unbalanced or premature wear.
•
Heavy-duty use of the HX-402-EE lining may result in accelerated wear.
Brake lining life is subject to vehicle duty and driver operating style, and lining
life will vary accordingly.
•
Do not use HX-402-EE on school buses exceeding 23,500 pounds
GVWR with a 2x66mm rear brake.
•
Do not use HX-402-EE on school buses exceeding 25,999 pounds
GVWR with a 2x73mm rear brake.

Anchor Plate Leading and Trailing Pins and
Caliper Mounting Bolt
There are two caliper mounting bolts per brake assembly. The bolts are used to secure the caliper
assembly to the leading and trailing pins. In turn, the pins provide the sliding action relative to the
anchor plate. The anchor plate leading and trailing pins and caliper mounting bolts are common for
both 2x66mm and 2x73mm caliper sizes.

The caliper is mounted to the anchor plate leading and trailing pins. The leading and trailing pins are
inserted into the anchor plate pin bores, which are lubricated with grease, as shown in Figure 14. The
function of the leading and trailing guide pins is to position the caliper assembly relative to the rotor
and provide the means for the caliper assembly to slide either inboard or outboard to compensate
for pad wear and provide a means for pad clearance to the rotor during non-braking situations. The
function of the pin boots is to seal the pins from the environment.

Remove Pistons
•
Always wear eye protection.
•
Use just enough air pressure to ease piston from caliper bore.
•
Keep hands clear of piston face to avoid possible injury if piston
“pops” from its bore.
•
Cover pistons with a shop rag to prevent brake fluid spray as piston clears bore.
. Drain all fluid from the caliper. Dispose of brake fluid properly.
2. Place a spacer block approximately 1 3/4 to 2 inches thick between the caliper outer shoe legs
and piston faces. Cover pistons with a shop rag to contain brake fluid spray. Refer to Figure 19.
Make sure one caliper fluid port is sealed with a bleed screw and the other port is open.
3. Use an air blow gun, as shown in Figure 19, to carefully apply low air pressure not to exceed
50 psi into the open caliper port to slowly push pistons out of caliper bores. Pistons will push
out against the spacer block.

Brake Adjustment
The Bosch pin slide caliper disc brakes are a self-adjusting design and do not require periodic
adjustments.
Wheel Bearing Adjustment
Lateral runout or wobble in disc brake rotors can cause an increase in pedal travel due to piston
knockback, brake pedal pulsation during brake applications and increased piston seal wear since the
pad is required to follow the rotor wobble.
Refer to vehicle manufacturer’s service manual for proper wheel bearing adjustment.

Rotors
Always refer to rotor or vehicle manufacturer’s service manual for specific details. The following is
offered as a general guide.
Inspection
A regular inspection of the braking system should be included as a part of a preventive maintenance
program. This can significantly reduce your per mile brake maintenance cost compared to reacting to
brake problems as they occur.
The common rotor problems shown here can easily be seen by removing the tire and rim and
inspecting the rotor surface. The following are the most common problems experienced with rotors
in the normal operation of the braking system. If one or more of these problems exist, the proper
corrective action indicated should be taken immediately to ensure proper braking on demand.
Rotor Thickness/Thickness Variation
Check rotor thickness to make sure the thickness exceeds the minimum dimensions stamped or cast
into the rotor. Thickness variation should not exceed 0.002” when measured at several points around
the rotor. If the variation exceeds 0.002” and the rotor thickness exceeds the minimum dimension,
the rotor can be resurfaced. The thickness of the resurfaced rotor must exceed the minimum
thickness dimension.
Pin Slide Disc Brake Service Manual
51
Rotors (continued)
Lateral Runout
Measure lateral runout using a dial indicator placed on
the outer braking surface approximately 1” in from the
rotor outside diameter.
Lateral runout should not exceed a total indicator reading
of 0.020” during one full revolution on properly adjusted
wheel bearings. If lateral runout exceeds 0.020” total
indicator reading, check the mounting surfaces between
the rotor and the wheel or hub, fastener torques and
wheel bearing adjustment.
Radial Runout
Using a dial indicator, check the radial runout as measured at the outside diameter of the braking
surface. The radial runout should not exceed 0.035” total indicator reading. If the radial runout of the
rotor exceeds 0.035”, replace the rotor.
Clogged or Restricted Vent Holes
Vehicles operating in severe-duty environments may experience clogged or restricted vent holes due
to the accumulation of mud, gravel or other debris. Such restrictions must be removed to provide
even cooling of the rotor during normal operation.
Worn Rotors
If the thickness of the rotors is at or below the minimum
thickness dimension, the rotor must be replaced.
If there is a sufficient thickness remaining on the
rotor, it may be resurfaced as long as the resulting
thickness does not fall below the minimum thickness
dimension. Check the rotor to make sure that the wear
is approximately equal on both braking surfaces. If one
surface is worn more than the other, inspect the brake
system for proper operation.
Scored Rotors
A scored rotor has a rough, grooved appearance on the
braking surface. If the scoring exceeds .015” and the rotor
thickness exceeds the minimum dimension, the rotor can
be resurfaced. The thickness of the resurfaced rotor must
exceed the minimum thickness dimension.
Pin Slide Disc Service Manual
52
Rotors (continued)
Lining Transfer
Lining transfer is a thin layer of lining material that has
built up on to the rotor braking surface. Initially, the
lining deposits will be spotty. As transfer progresses,
the lining deposits will be covering more of the braking
surface. Lining transfer may accelerate lining wear.
Lining transfer is the result of extremely high operating
temperatures, which may be caused by continued hard
stops or brake system imbalance. The rotor can be
resurfaced to remove the lining deposits and restore
a proper braking surface. The rotor thickness after
resurfacing must not be below the minimum thickness
dimension.
Bluing Rotors
A rotor that shows the signs of bluing has been
subjected to extremely high temperatures. This condition
may be caused by continued hard stops or brake system
imbalance.
Heat Spotted Rotors
This condition indicates that the rotor has been subjected
to extremely high temperatures that have caused
structural changes to occur in the rotor material. This can
cause the rotor to be more susceptible to cracking.
The rotor should be resurfaced to remove the hard raised
areas. If resurfacing will not remove the heat spots,
or if the resurfacing reduces the rotor thickness below
the minimum thickness dimension, the rotor must be
replaced.
Pin Slide Disc Brake Service Manual
53
Rotors (continued)
Heat Checking
Heat checking is the appearance of short, thin, radial
interruptions of the braking surfaces of the rotor. Heat
checking is a normal phenomena of the disc brake
function.
Heat checking is the result of the heating and cooling
of the braking surface as the brakes are applied during
operation of the vehicle. Heat checks are not detrimental
to the function or the performance of the braking system
and no corrective action is required for this condition.
Heat checks will frequently wear away, then reform as a
result of the normal braking process. However, in some
cases, heat checks can progress over time into cracks in the
braking surface depending on such factors as lining/rotor wear
rate, friction material, brake system balance and how hard the
brakes are used. Rotors with cracks extending beneath the
pad rubbing surface should be replaced.
Cracked Rotors
Braking surface cracks are radial cracks in the braking
surface and rounding the edge of the rotor at the inside or
outside diameter of the braking surface.
These cracks are usually caused by severe brake use
or braking imbalance, which shifts a greater share of
the braking function to only a few brakes. The brakes
performing the greater share of the braking will always
show the greater rotor wear and will sometimes crack.
Cracked rotors must be replaced. If the rotor is not
replaced, the cracks will accelerate lining wear and can
eventually progress into the barrel section of the rotor and
cause separation of the braking section from the mounting
flange. After installing a new disc brake rotor, check the brake
system for proper braking balance to prevent subsequent
cracking.
Pin Slide Disc Service Manual
54
Rotors (continued)
Grease-Stained Rotors
Grease-stained brake rotors will show discolored spots on
the braking surface, with oil and/or grease spattered on the
brake assembly. This condition can be caused by a faulty
hub lubrication system. To correct the problem, the source
of the grease and/or oil must be repaired. Remove the
brake assembly and clean component. Replace the linings
if they are soaked with oil or grease.
Pin Slide Disc Brake Service Manual
55
Resurfacing Rotors
Rotors are considered acceptable for continued use without resurfacing when:
. Lateral runout and thickness variation is within specification.
2. Rotor braking surface area is smooth with even wear. Light grooving or heat checking is
acceptable.
3. Brake pads are being replaced with the SAME lining material type.
. Rotor thickness is more than the minimum allowable thickness dimension.
Rotors can be resurfaced to provide a new, smooth braking surface. The rotors should be
resurfaced when:
. Lateral runout or thickness variation exceed maximum specification.
2. Rotor braking surfaces are worn unevenly, have deep grooves, are scored, heat spotted, heat
checked or have excessive lining transfer.
3. Replacing brake pads with a different lining material type.
If the rotor thickness after resurfacing is less than the minimum thickness dimension, the rotor must
be replaced.
Be sure to use good, sharp cutting tools and proper cutting feed and speed when resurfacing the
rotor. Avoid dull cutting tools and tool chatter. After remachining, the rotor braking surfaces must
be clean and smooth with a surface finish of 40-120 microinch (1.016-3.048 micrometers). Check
rotor surface finish radially across both braking surfaces.
Check rotor thickness and thickness variation to ensure they are within specifications.
After installing hub and rotor on the vehicle, wash rotor braking surfaces with high grade denatured
alcohol to remove all traces of grease, oil or other residue. DO NOT use gasoline, mineral spirits or
oil. Check rotor lateral runout to ensure it is within a specification.
Replacement Rotors
Disc brake rotors are carefully engineered to meet the specific requirements of each brake
system. All replacement rotors must meet the quality and performance standard set by the vehicle
manufacturer. Replacing worn or damaged rotors with rotors of equal quality allows the braking
system to operate efficiently, which will result in maximum stopping performance, longer service
life between relining and overall lower brake maintenance costs.
