Jack up the vehicle securely.
Remove the tire/rim
Remove the brake pads and the caliper, slide the caliper off to the side, do not remove the hose.
Remove the 2 big bolts that holds the caliper retainer bracket on, on the back side of the bracket
Remove the bracket
Tap the rotor to dislodge it from the hub.
Very easy to do.

If you release the clutch pedal and it revs up before it goes and while driving the rpm gauge goes up and down is that the clutch slipping


If you are getting that amount of slippage, it is unlikely that a simple clutch adjustment will cure it. Your clutch pedal should have roughly 1" of free play from the top of the clutch pedal, and absolutely no more than 2" free play.
If you have zero free play, it "may" be possible to eliminate the slippage by adjusting the clutch, but you would have to be very lucky to get off that easy.

The slippage means that your clutch disc is most likely worn too thin and possibly glazed, as well as glazing of the flywheel and pressure plate friction surfaces. When the pedal is released, the clutch engages by sandwiching the clutch disc between the flywheel on one side and the clutch pressure plate on the other side. Strong springs in the pressure plate keep the clutch disc tightly sandwiched between the flywheel & pressure plate. Pushing on the clutch pedal releases this tension/pressure.

It's never "just a flywheel". That mechanic is bogus. All 3 parts are affected by worn or slipping clutch. Usually you don't need a new flywheel, as resurfacing it is usually fine & the normal procedure.
But you will need to replace the clutch disc and pressure plate anytime the flywheel is resurfaced.

Resurfacing a flywheel is similar to resurfacing brake rotors on a brake pad replacement (brake job).
Naturally the transmission has to be removed to get access to the clutch components, which is really the biggest part of the job.

Here's a pic of the basic clutch components:

Replace rear brake discs.. need step by step instruction


Chrysler has designed these for ease of service...remove the 2 bolts that hold the caliper in place...the rotor should pull off unless held in place by a thin metal washer on a lug bolt...remove and discard these retainers...most mechanics do not reinstall these...the rotors should be replaced along with the pads for best performance and smoothness...you can have the rotors measured to see if they can be resurfaced...(turned) you must push the caliper pistons back to flatness with the opening in order to install the new pads...after putting the rotor back into place on the hub...install the new pads and remount the caliper over the rotor...if you did not have to open any brake lines you do not need to bleed the system...inspect and fill the brake fluid reservoir as needed...do not be surprised that when first pressing on the brake pedal that it travels to the floor...it is resetting the pressure...and should pump up and hold pressure...test drive and reinspect/fill the brake reservoir again...Let me know if you have to open the system, I can help with bleeding instructions as needed...Hope this helps. Ceramic pads are the cleanest...sometimes slightly noisy until they warm up...

350z Rotors need to be cut at only 10K miles


Your rotors should be fine but it also depends on who turned the rotors and how they were done.Considering the dealer replaced the pads they probably used a metallic pad which have been known to be a noisy .Id suggest you have a repair shop resurface your rotors again and install some ceramic brake pads.

I am replacing the brake pads on my Kia 2007 Sedona; front and back is neeeded or just front? Took it to Kia dealer and mechanic showed me pads where very thin and needed replacement; all for $400! Heck...


If your rotors are good and fairly smooth, then a decent ceramic pad will work well. Just be aware that ceramic pads will require a slightly greater paddle pressure. They will last longer, dust up a bit less and will perform MUCH greater in stop and go traffic...

I suspect that 25 dollars per axle is a typical cost for good quality disc brake pads.

BRAKE PEDAL JUDDER ON SLOWING DOWN


Most likely you have one or both front disks warped. To reduce weight, disks have gotten thinner and warp fairly easily from heat buildup.
If the disk(s) are not too badly worn or too thin, it may be possible to resurface them to improve the flatness but in most cases, it makes better sense to replace them.
I would check Brembo to see if they make replacement disks for your car; I have had good service from them, better than OEM disks.

Do i need to change the brake pads and discs???


No you don't, you can have them turn the brake disk/rotor . Turning the brake disk/rotor is when you have the surface of the disk resurfaced by having a brake lath cut the high spots down. The disk are cheap enough now that most will just replace the disk/rotor the same time they replace the brake pads. You can pick up performance drilled or slotted brake disk/rotor for almost the same price as the OEM disk/rotor. Good luck and hope this helps, you can pick up the slotted brake disk/rotor at Auto Zone for a reasonable price and they will have the step by step instruction replacing the disk and if you like to just have the disk/rotor turned, they can do they there too.
