Is it important to face the rotor toward the number one cylinder?

Not if all you are doing is replacing the rotor and/or distributor cap. If you are trying to find the correct way to wire the spark plugs then yes it is very important.

What number does the rotor face in the distributor?

When fitting or removing a distributor, the rotor arm points at No1. You do of course have to rotate the engine, so that No1 cylinder is on compression stroke and the timing marks are in about the right place first. Suzuki jeeps like the SJ 413, Vitara and Samurai are set up on No4 though.

How do you remove distributor rotor on 2000 crv?

I have a 1999 cr-v. With the distributor cap off you must slightly give the key a turn in the ignition (not trying to start it) just to turn the rotor a little. When the teeth on the rotor face the front end of the car you should be able to see a phillip's head screw on the back side that screws directly into the distributor shaft. Unscrew this and the rotor should slide right off. Be careful not to strip the screw, because you might end up having to take off the entire distributor housing to drill it out.

Should the distributor face forward or backward on a Chevy 350?

How do you replace the ignition module of a Pontiac Sunbird?

Undo the two Phillips screws (the lower one is difficult to get) on the distributor cap and remove the cap. Pull the distributor rotor off the shaft. The module is mounted flat across the surface directly below the rotor. It is a semi-circular dark grey or brown piece taking up about half the surface of the distributor face, held on with two small hex-head screws. This is a NOTORIOUS failure item in early Sunbirds, if you have brutally erratic and total no-starts this is something to try early on in the diagnostic game.

How do you pull the rears rotors off a 1985 Mercedes D190?

Remove rear wheels. Remove both rear caliper and brake pad assemblies. Hang them aside. On the face of the rear rotor check to see if there is an Allen screw securing rotor to axle - remove screw. Be sure emergency brake is not on. Remove rotor. If it doesn't want to come off, emergency brake is probably hanging it up. Locate emergency brake adjuster through wheel bolt hole in the face of the rotor (rotate axle and rotor using a light to locate the star adjuster). Using a screwdrive back off adjuster to release emergency brake shoes. Try again to remove. If it still doesn't come off, hit the face of the rotor at hub with a hammer (not kidding!) as rust may be holding it in place.

How do you pull the rears rotors off a 2002 C240?

remove the caliper, pads and mounts. There is a set screw in the face of the rotor, remove this. Thread in a bolt of same thread size and tighten until rotor pops off hub. The rotor will fall off the hub. A light tap of a hammer on the rotor in a circular pattern, should produce similar results if you don't a bolt.

Do you have to repack the wheel bearing on a 2004 Jeep Liberty if you replace the brake rotors?

No, you can remove and/or replace the front rotors on your Jeep Liberty without having to repack the wheel bearings. To remove the rotor, remove the brake caliper, and then pull the rotor straight off the wheel studs. If the rotor doesn't budge, then use an air hammer to tap the front face of the rotor adjacent to the wheel studs (the flat area of the rotor directly between the wheel studs). This will knock the rust loose and let the rotor slip off the studs. DO NOT use the air hammer on the braking [shiny] surface of the rotor!

Rotors for disc brakes can be machined on the car or taken off and done. A bench mounted brake lathe does it off of the car.
