Changing Rotors on a 1996 Hyundai ElantrRemove the Brake caliper and caliper holder as a unit. Two bolts at the back. you will need a compressor of some sort to drive the caliper piston back in the caliper if you are installing new pads.After the caliper is removed heat the centre of the brake disc, where it goes over the Hub, using a propane torch don't overheat it though just enough to expand the disk so it will come off the hub. Hit it on the back with a hammer if you are not using the disk again. If you are using the disk again I suggest using a block of hardwood and hit the wood with the hammer. If you have a puller then use it instead but usually backyard mechanics don't have such tools. You will have to judge how hard you hit it but with heat applied it shouldn't have to be hit too hard.

How do you remove and replace the front and back rotors on a 1996 Chrysler Sebring Coupe?

Remove the calipers on the front ones and they should slide right out. On the back after you remove the caliper , you need a screw that fits the 2 holes by the lug nuts and screw it in until the rotor pops then just slide it out. keep your parking brake off. The rear one is also the parking brake drum. If your rotor is rusted to the wheel bearing, which it probably will be, use a hammer on it to attempt to break loose the rust and release the rotor.

How do you change the Brake shoes and rotor in a 1996 crown Victoria?

The only brake shoes on a '96 crown are for the parking brakes. The front and back are disc. Once the wheel is off, take off the caliper and the rotor will come off. Replace with new disc's and new rotor and put the unit back on. Do one side at a time. The rear has the parking brakes in the center of the disc, held in with springs. You will need some special tools for the job, caliper spreader, spring pliers. Also, check the calipers to see if they move freely, if not then replace with rebuilt. Also check the sliding bolt and apply the proper grease.
