You do not need a torque wrench when replacing brake pads and rotors. Some of the tools needed to change the rotors and pads are the c-clamp, sockets, wrench, grease, and brake cleaner.
Replacing brake rotors on a Chrysler Pacifica will vary in price depend on the labor cost. The price should be around $150 dollars.
depends on the condition od the pads. If worn or have groves etc from the rotors then replace.
The majority of the stopping power is performed by the front rotors. I would start by replacing them.
Don't know about calipers - have never needed to replace those. If you are replacing, yourself, the parts (pads and rotors) will cost anywhere from $120 up for front pads and rotors (pads $20 up for a full set, rotors $45 up each). If you check the web, there are some sites where you can order an entire set (pads and rotors) for around $90.
take brakes off and calipers off, next rotors should come off easily.
Not unless they are under the minimum thickness spec.
your rotors are probanly warped and need refinishing or replacing. Its normal.
Most of the time, you can get by with just replacing the pads. The rotors generally do not need to be turned if there is no pedal pulsation or vibration. Rotors will need to be replaced if the exceed the minimum thickness which is stamped on the web (area with lug holes).
In may area around $150.
WELL, I HAVE A 2005 TOYOTA SUV AND I JUST HAD MY FRONT ROTORS AND BRAKE PADS REPLACED AND IT COST ME 325.00. If you do it your self it is about 140.00
Could be inferior brake pads or glazed brake rotors. If the new pads were installed without machining or replacing the rotors that could also cause brake squeal.
Replace the sensor
Hard to say but likely brake rotors need replacing
If it is a Toyota, they do not know how to fix the squeaking brakes either. Even after replacing all the pads and machining the rotors and rear drums
Depends - simply replacing pads? replacing pads and machining rotors? replacing pads and rotors? repairing any other brake issues as well? But how much it "should" cost and the actual cost may vary. Shop around, but you'll probably get a typical price range rather than an exact price.
it would be best to replace all
No you dont have to. All I did was was pump the brakes with the car running
First, remove the wheel. Then disassemble the brake calipers - two hex or star bolts located on the back which will require you to first remove the caps. Once the bolts are removed, the whole assembly should be able to slide of the rotors. Make sure you support the calipers somehow, do not just let them dangle from the connecting lines (They're fragile and can be easily be torn or pulled) Once the calipers are out of the way, the rotors are able to slide out. Remember to replace your pads if you're replacing the rotors, and bleed the brakes! I had a harder time bleeding the brakes after I did this than I did replacing the rotors.
Depends on 2 things, Do they shake when you step on the brakes or are there grooves in your rotors? If you answer yes to either of those 2 questions I would say yes

If the vibration goes away in a couple stops it means you got dirty finger prints or other dirt on the rotors. Other wise the rotors are out of true (Warped) and need to be replaced.
You have a warped rotor. Brake pads need replacing and the rotors turned or replaced.
The Hyundai dealership said it would be $680 for replacing all 4 rotors and an additional $300 to replace the brakes! Most aftermarket pads are about $50 per axle. Rotors are usually around $50-75 each.
