Remove the tire the undo the two hex bolts on the back of the caliper.Don't unhook the brake line. You might have to hit the caliper a couple of times to break it loose.After you remove the caliper remove the rotor. Make sure if you replace the rotor I suggest both front rotors add in a new set of brake pads. Mixing old brake parts will make your front end run out of whack. And why tear it all apart and only do half a job. When you remove the brake pads from the caliper make sure you push the caliper piston back into it's hole. A big C-clamp usually works. If you are limited to a certain amount of tools, bolt the caliper back on with out the pads and use a pry bar and gently I repeat gently push the caliper piston back into it's slot. Make sure the bolt bushings are still in the caliper when you put it back on and the bolts seat firmly in place. If the bolts are hard to tighten back down pull them out and realign the caliper this one spot you don't want to cross thread. Happy Wrenching.

Do you mean rotor? If so, remove the distributor cap and remove the old rotor and install the new one. Simple repair.

They come off much like the front. With the wheel off, remove the caliper and the rotor just pulls off. The parking brake is in the center of the hub, there fore you do not need to take anything else off.

I dont think you remove the nut in the center of the hub, your rotor is more than likely just rusted on to the hub.

Remove the wheel and brake calipers. Be careful not to let the caliper hang by the brake line. Use a hanger to hold it up and out of the way.On the rotors the are screws close to the center of the rotor, remove these screws and the rotor just slides off. The screws can be tough, dont strip the heads, use the appropiate size screw driver and tap a few times with a hammer, that may help loosen it. I didnt put the screws back in after replacing the rotor, I believe that is a optional choice.

1st pull off front wheels, you will see a caliper which houses the brake pads, there are two bolts or pins located on back side of caliper, remove them, then pry caliper off from rotor, remove old pads and before installing new ones, retract the piston on the caliper so it will be easier to reinstall caliper on to brake rotor reistall the 2 bolts and tighten down.

To change the front wheel studs on a 1993 Chevy S10, you will need to remove the tire and brake caliper. If it is a floating rotor, you will need to remove the rotor. To install, you will need to use a special tool for removal. If the tool is not available, be prepared to use a large nut and washer for installation.
