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. .
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.
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.
Changing Disc rotors on a 88 - 97 GMCIt is very simple. All you have to do is remove your tire. Then on the back side of your brake caliper there are two screws you will need a 3/8" Alan wrench or equivalent. After that you can simply pull the caliper off of the rotor and then slide the rotor off. If you do not want to bleed your brakes then you can simple take a 3" C-clamp and tighten the caliper back. This will allow you to put new brakes on your new rotor without bleeding the lines.
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.
if you also had your rotors replaced w/ the brake service then its because the mechanic did not completely clean off the chemical compound applied to the rotor when shipped. its used so it stays in top condition. if you have your OLD rotors and it smokes after new pads, then something is very wrong. more than likely wrong brake pad or the person who worked on your brakes messed something up.
Depends how bad the rotors were. And how old the pads are. The pads will wear into the shape of the rotor surface. So new flat rotors will wear old pads much faster until they wear down to conform to the new surface. Also this could damage the rotor surface. Its cheap insurance just to put new pads in. Its a quick job since the brakes are all apart anyway.
yes it is normal due to an oily residue on new rotors. it is recommended to use brake cleaner and or warm soapy water to remove the oils but not absolutely necessary. they will operate fine with the oil residue still on them but expect them to smoke and smell funny, it is normal . it takes a little bit for the brakes to get worn in as well as the rotors so start braking earlier than normal and don't slam on them until you feel them acting like normal or you will put grooves in the rotors and possibly the brakes as well wich will give your car that shake in the steering wheel and you will have to replace pads and pay to have the rotors turned or possibly replace the pads and rotors again due to an un-even surface.
