How do you remove the front rotors from a 2001 Chevrolet Venture van?
The front rotors on a Venture van are removed by removing the brake caliper (two bolts on backside), don�t forget to support caliper. Don�t let caliper hang by the brake hose. I use a piece of clothes hanger. After the caliper is remove take the caliper bracket off by removing the two bolts for it on the backside. After the bracket is removed the rotor will come off. If the rotor has never been removed there may be one or two spring clips on the lugs. Remove them with a pair of diagonal cutters and discard. Installation is a reverse of the removal. The spring clips do not need to be replaced. A lug nut can be use until the assembly is complete to hold the rotor in place. Remove lug nut and reinstall wheel. Don�t forget to torque all bolts properly.
Jack up and safely support front of vehicle. Remove front wheels. Remove front brake calipers and hang them with wire so not to damage brake hoses. Remove brake caliper brackets. Remove brake rotors. Rotors may need a little persuasion with a large hammer as they may be stuck/rusted in place. Reverse order to install rotors.
How do you change front rotors on 1998 Dodge Stratus what size socket to remove if not free floating?
From the factory, Corvette rotors were riveted to either the front hub assembly or the rear spindle. To remove the rotors from your Corvette, drill out the rivets, removing the head of the pressed in rivet and then pull the rotor off. The rivets, still remaining in the hub assembly or spindle can then be cut or driven out with a hammer. To install the new rotor, the rivets DO NOT need to be replaced…
