No, not really. After you get the caliper off, the rotor should just slide off- but- there may still be the factory retainer on one of the studs which you can destroy with a hammer and chisel. If the vehicle's parking brakes are separate from the disc brakes, then the piston for the caliper can just be pushed back in, with the bleeder opened. This is so dirt doesn't get pushed back into the system possibly damaging your ABS system. If the vehcile has combined parking/service brake calipers, then the piston will have to either be twisted back in with a special tool, or there will be a screw on the back of the caliper for just this purpose.

The 2001 Pontiac Grand Am minimum brake rotor thickness is .075. The minimum brake rotor thickness is a standard minimum. Certified mechanics cannot use the brake rotor when the thickness drops below this level.

Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the brake assembly. The old rotor will slide off. You might need to tap on the rotor with a hammer to get it to slide off. Reverse the process to install the new rotor.

Remove the brake caliper, then the caliper frame mounting. ( just two bolts on the inside of knuckle) Now the rotor is free to come off.

Remove the wheel, from the car. Remove the brake caliper, from the rotor. Check the rotor, for grooving,glazing, and warpage, also thickness. If any of this is present, have the rotor turned, or replaced. Then replace the brake pads, with new ones. Make sure the brake pads are compatible with the rotors that you are using.

First I would have the rear rotors removed to inspect the emergency brake shoe's and rotor for wear. Sometimes people are known to drive with the emergency brake engaged which will wear the shoe and rotor. If they are still within specs, there is an adjustment on the shoe's

You remove the brake caliper, at this point, the rotor will come off.

Remove the caliper, remove the caliper bracket, and remove speed clips that hold rotor. If the rotor is stuck , take a hammer and hit it squarely between the wheel studs.

Lift the car on a car jack, remove the tire off the car, remove the brake shoe/caliper and remove the old brake pad. Next put in the new brake pads, put the brake shoe/caliper in its place, put the tire back on the car and slowly lower the car to the ground.

Remove the distributor cap. Do not remove the plug wires. Pull the rotor off or remove the screws that hold it on, it that applies, and revese the process with a new rotor.
