Brake Disc (Rotor)

  • REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

 

Removal & Installation




CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the front wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Unbolt the caliper and suspend it with a piece of wire. Do NOT let the caliper hang by the brake hose.
  4. Remove the rotor.
  5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

  3. Remove some brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.
  4. Disconnect and plug the brake fluid line from the caliper.
  5. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolt and guide bolt and remove the caliper from the mount. The brackets can be removed for additional work space.

    2. If the caliper bracket was removed, tighten the bolts to 115 ft. lbs. (155 Nm).
    3. Install the caliper on the mounting bracket. Torque the caliper-to-mounting bracket bolts to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).

The disc sits behind a plate which the wheel studs are attatched to, the disc will not pass this plate?
