Lift the vehicle on a car jack, remove the tire, remove the caliper, remove 6 bolts and hub cover. Remove the screws from the lock washer, remove lock washer, remove lock nut, remove hub assembly, put match marks on hub and rotors, and remove the rotor. Put the new rotor on aligned with the marks, put everything back on in reverse.Ê
Jack up car, secure on jackstand, Remove wheel, remove two mounting bolts that secure the calipers. Slide calipers out of rotors and hang caliper in a way not to strain brake hose. Pull Rotors off and change for new ones. If you want to change pads, Remove two retaining bolts on the caliper that hold the pads, remove and replace them.
