If you are changing the pads only, (which I did last night) you can remove just the top caliper lock pin and then flip it out pop out the pads, compress the caliper piston (with a C clamp, or with some channel lock pliers that are long enough to fit over the caliper cylinder assembly) and the pop in the new pads, flip the caliper back up and tighten the pin back in. Took me 15 mins each side of the car including wheel removal :)

You will find that the front brake rotors are located behind the front of your wheel spindle, (behind your wheel and brakes). There you will see the rotors.

Have the front rotors turned on a lathe at a dealership. check brakes and rotors

if you are driving and you go to stop, then that means that the front rotors are warped. if the front rotors are bad, you will feel a pulsation in pedal while applying brakes. change rotors on front.

Check front pads and brake rotors. You might have to change the pads.

No you dont have to. All I did was was pump the brakes with the car running

Brakes, If you get on brakes and get a hard vibration and shaking like the front end is going to fall off, front rotors are more than likely warped. Stock rotors are poor quality Replace with after market heavy duty rotors.

A common reason is that the front rotors have warped. Go check out WikiAnswers on the topic of "warped brake rotors". Rotors should wear out smoothly in normal driving. Use of the brakes that generate lots of heat (hard braking, riding the brakes) will result in warped rotors.

Pads about 30.00, Rotors anywhere from 85.00-125 ea. turn rotors-40.00 (approx) + labor.
