Ok, I attempted to change out the front rotors and I can;t figure it out. Does anyoen have a step by step guide or a link to another post (I did try searching) that coudl help me out. Thanxs.
one important mistake here.... the caliper (not just the floating part of it) is held on to the knuckle with 19 mm bolts that can be hard to get off. The 13mm bolts simply hold on the floating part of caliper and the rotor will not slip off with just the floating part removed.Step 1 - Break lugs
Step 2 - Jack car up untill tire off ground
Step 3 - Remove lug nuts
Step 4 - Remove tire
Step 5 - Look behind the caliper you will see two bolts I think 10mm - Remove them and the caliper will come off
Step 6 - Remove Rotor (It should just about fall off at this point)
Step 7 - Put new rotor on, be sure to line up all the holes on the rotor with the ones on the housing plate
Step 8 - Balance tire in front of rotor and screw in the lugs
Step 9 - IMPORTANT - Make sure you hold the tire firmly on the rotor as you tighten the lugs as you can get it a bit off center
Step 10 - lower the car
Step 11 - Tighten the lugs
I hope this helps you, remember that although your just starting out working on cars, we all started somewhere but you should buy the shop manual on this car becasue it will have photos and step by step instructions for everything!
Good Luck and let us know how it goes (This should take you about 25min to do)
