Unfortunately, changing the rotors involves repacking the wheel bearings and then getting the torque settings right when you reassemble the hub. I've been looking into this for a long time. Apparently, one needs a bearing press to get the bearing seals back in properly which can be an expensive proposition. Additionally, this is a critical operation. You have to be able to loosen and replace several bolts without stripping them and making a mistake in repacking the bearings or reassembling the 4wd hub can be near catastrophic to your vehicle (if not you). To get the correct torque settings I am looking into Chilton's Nissan 4wd SUV manual. I am also looking into finding a garage with a press that will do the bearings but then give it back for me to assemble. I would greatly appreciate if anyone else has done this and can share a suggestion or two. The bearing cone and seal can be set in with an inexpensive bearing race tool that you can buy at any pats store and a hammer.

Jack of the rear of your 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora. Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the brake pads and break assembly. Tap on the rotors with a hammer or mallet. Slide the rotors off. Reverse the process to install the new rotors.

Most common cause of that is the rotors are out of round are warped. REPLACE ROTORS.

I dont know what is reasonable, but my dealer said it would be about $900 to replace both outer CV boots on my 2001 Pathfinder.

They are behind the front rotors and you can't see them. But you can see were the electric wire goes in behind the rotors that hook to them.

possibly warped rotors.Feels for grooves on the rotors(when rotors are cool,your rotors should be smooth ) if you feel them you need to replace them,and dont forget to replace your pads too.Worn pads grind your rotors and ruin them.
