Remove the tire, remove the brake calipers( The part that holds the brack pads in place, Once that is removed, You can remove the brake rotors and put new ones on. Depending on the style of rotors, You may have to remove and repack the wheel bearings to put new rotors on. Most current cars and rotors are seprate from the lug nut assembaly. So when that you are done the rotor is held on by the caliper assembaly and your wheels lug nuts and a couple of guild pins. .

How do you replace your disc brakes?

To replace disc brakes you need to first remove your tires. After removing you old pads and rotors you then want to reset the brake calipers. Then replace your pads with new pads and either replace or resurface your rotors as needed. Once everything is put back together you want to fully depress your break pedal until resistance returns. The final step is to drive test you breaks to make sure every thing is functioning properly.

What does it mean to machine the brake rotors and drum brakes?

The rotors in disc brakes and the drums are what the pads and shoes rub against to stop a car. With use, the surface can get grooves in it or a build up of rust scale; reducing the braking efficiency. To machine the rotors and drums, they are put on a lathe that cuts a new smooth surface on the face of each. Depending on wear, any given rotor or drum can probably be turned 2 or 3 times before needing to be replaced.

Why would a 1992 Nissan pick-up brakes make a screeching noise if it has new brakes and good bearings?

The posts that the calipers slide on need to be lubed too. Look at the brakes, something is touching the rotors. Something has been put together wrong or the slides are binding and the pads are staying in contact with the rotors after the brakes are released.

Unless the frame/fork already have the mounting tabs, it won't be possible without a lot of effort. You'd need to have the tabs welded in place, then get some new wheels built, and hope that there's enough clearance to fit the rotors.

Why do the brake rotors become warped on your 2006 Saturn 6-cyl VUE after about 6000 miles?

Rotors warp when they overheat. Perhaps you're riding the brakes, have a sticking caliper or are going downhill a lot and are overheating the brakes that way. Often pulling a trailer will overheat the brakes, especially if the trailer does not have electric brakes. If none of the above seem to apply to your situation, perhaps someone put cheaper rotors on the vehicle; some of the import rotors look the same but they warp quite easily. Also not torquing the lug nuts correctly can warp the rotors. If the lug nuts are put on too tight the rotors will warp on some vehicles.

Replacing disc brakes can be a tricky task. First, you must make sure they are cool enough to touch, then bleed them and take apart the brakes. You can put new pads and discs on to finish the job.
