All you should have to do is pull the rotor up and it should come roight out, and all you have to do is push a new one back on, it will only go on one way. In addition to the accurate response above, if it's the original rotor, it may not just pull off easy as there will be a bit of rust on the stem. If so, carefully use a long flat head screwdriver to pry it up from the base of the rotor.

How do you replace a distributor on a 1998 Tahoe 350?

Remove the cap with wires and push them to the side. Pay close attnetion to the direction the rotor is pointing to and scribe a mark onto a nearby engine part; your new distributor needs this reference point. Unbolt old distributor and remove wires. Install new distributor, and as you do, start feeding the shaft gear so that the rotor ends up pointing to your earlier reference point. In most cases the distributor will not go down all the way because the oil pump drive is not engaged, however, apply a small amount of downward pressure to the distributor and have someone bump the key and it will drop in place. Reattach the cap and wires. Done. I hope this helps you.

How do you remove afront brake rotor on a 1998 Volkswagen Jetta?

Remove the front tire, and set aside. Remove the two brake carrier retaining bolts on the rear of the brake assembly. They're either 17 or 19 mm (if I remember correctly). Once the brake assembly is out of the way, there is only a screw holding the brake rotor in place. Take a large Philips head screwdriver, and simply unscrew it. Remove the rotor. In some cases where the screw is frozen onto the assembly, you may have to use PB BLASTER to remove it, but BE CAREFUL. Thoroughly clean the rotor and brake assemblies with a good brake parts cleaner to remove the lubricant, as brakes and rotors are NOT something that you'd want to be slick.
