How do you replace front brake rotors for a 1997 Chrysler sebring is there a nut to be removed or do the rotors slide off?
Remove Wheels Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor Rotor should slide off hub Use a "C" clamp to totally retract piston into caliper body Replace brake pads inner and outer Install rotor on hub Slide caliper on rotor and secure with mounting bolts REMEMBER TO PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SET PADS AGAINST ROTOR PRIOR TO MOVING VEHICLE
Vibrating brakes are almost always a symptom of worn rotors. When the rotor wears down, or has grooves, the brake pad can no longer make a flush connection with the rotor. This will cause the caliper (which holds the brake pad) to move in and out as it tries to establish a flush connection with the rotor. The rapid movement of the caliper is what causes your brake pedal to vibrate.
Remove Wheels Re-Install 2 Lug nuts to hold rotor in place Loosen 2 caliper mounting bolts Remove 1 mounting bolt to allow caliper to slide off rotor Remove outer brake pad Use "C" Clamp and inner pad to retract piston in to caliper body FRONT ONLY Need special tool (available at Sears or auto parts) to thread piston in to caliper body REAR ONLY Install snew brake pads inner and outer RE-Install caliper on to…
How do you remove a WARN front rotor from a 1997 Suburban The brake rotor needs to be replaced and will not come off?

Take the front wheel and tire off after you have the front end jacked up. Then you will wanna look at the brake caliper that is holding the brake pads, which you will see two bolts at the top running through. Take those bolts out and the caliper will come off and then you just pull out the brake pads and make sure to use a c clamp to push the brake cylinder back in…
The complete hub and rotor assembly have to be removed in order to drive out wheel studs to separate the rotor from the hub. So, remove wheel, remove caliper, remove caliper bracket, remove axle retaining nut, remove 4 bolts holding hub assembly to spindle, dissconnect ABS sensor harness, remove hub assembly, remove all wheel studs then separate rotor from hub.
1) jack and support vehicle 2) remove wheel 3) loosen/remove brake line to caliper 4) remove caliper mounting bolts (2) 5) slide caliper off rotor Reverse procedure to install. 1) you will have to "bleed" air from the new caliper 2) pump brake pedal to set brake pads against caliper before operating vehicle
