Just did this replacement and, while I can address some issues, I am not satisfied that the job was successful. Here goes: First, after securely jacking car and removing wheel, remove calipers and hang by a wire or twine so weigtht of calipers is not supported by brake line hose. With calipers out of the way, tap behind rotor around periphery to remove rotor. This is a tight (and maybe rusted) fit and takes time and patience. The reason this is a tight fit is because inside the hub of the rotor is the emergency brake which is a cable actuated old fashioned shoe brake. The inside of the rotor acts as the drum. Once the old rotor is off this is all visible. When mounting new rotor, I had a bear of a time getting rotor to fit over emerg brake shoes. Seemed no amount of tapping eventually, hammering, evenly around periphery would move rotor into place. Emerg brake shoes interfered. Measured ID of rotor hub where emerg shoes must fit and compared to old rotor- exactly same diameter. So I have the correct rotor. Eventually a friend came to my aid and made adjustments to the knerled emergency brake adjusting knob (at bottom of shoe ring) until rotor finally fit into place. He finished job and next day I drove the car and found that the emergency brake shoe must be in continuous contact with the rotor hub (drum) because the disc is VERY hot and even smells hot (much hotter on one side than the other). This seemed like it was going to be as easy as replacing the front rotors and pads (which I did last year) but, with the enmergency brake coming into play the rear replacement is more "complicated" than the front. Now I have to remove the new rotor and fool around with the emerg brake adjusting knob (it's not really a knob but more a little knerled wheel that, when turned, appears to grow or shrink the diameter of the shoe ring. I'm not looking forward to this because it promises to be a hit and miss proposition. I'm still cruising the internet for a good set of instructions. In the mean time, hope my experience helps someone. JH
Remove the wheel, the calipers and the rotors, reverse procedure with new rotors.
Yes. Rotors on front brakes, drums on rear.
Probably scoured rotors.
The grand Cherokee does have four wheel disc brakes. The wrangler and Cherokee have rear drum brakes.
Check the lug nuts
take off calipers and pull the rotors off the hub
resurface/replace front rotors. probably do the rear rotors too
Check your brakes and rotors
warped rotors , bad brakes,tie rods, tiresbad ,
how do change the spark plugs and the coil pack on a 2000 Oldsmobile intrigue
Yes, it is 7mm allen head.
No , disk brakes front and rear ( the back disk brake rotors have small parking brake shoes inside of a drum portion )
Remove the brake assembly from your 2000 VW Beetle. Tap on the rotors with a hammer or mallet until the become loose. Slide the brake rotors off. Reverse the process to install your new brake rotors.
Warped Rotors on your Front Brakes. Have them turned or purchase new ones.
disc brakes in front and rear ( rotor ) Also , the rear rotors have a small drum on the back of them for small emergency brake shoes
The Ford Escape went into production in 2000. So there is no 94 Escape
Answer confusedhow to change a timing chain in 1999 Oldsmobile intrigue
every 30,000 miles. to be safe.
nope ...its the same as any other car for the basic mechanic.
Took me about an hour to change mine, but it was the first time.
same as the front there both disk brakes just like the front
a torx bit size t-55 for front brakes
remove wheels thenremove calipers the rotors are on the studs with small keeper washers just pry them off
No, you do not. If you change the caliper, you will have to bleed that brake line. Have someone press on the brake pedal. Open the bleed valve, while they continue to hold the pedal. Close the valve. Repeat 3 times. We did it 4 times, but 3 should do it. Works great!
