Sandy, I can only assume that you have fixed whatever issue you were having by now since this post is about 4 months old but, I'd like to give an answer anyway. In order to remove the rotors you obviously have to remove the wheel first. Next you have to remove the brake caliper. To do that you usually need to slightly compress the caliper by squeezing it with a large C-clamp. After it's loose, remove the two hex head bolts, one upper and one lower, that hold the caliper in place. At this point there might be a small ring clip or two around one or two of the lug nut studs that need to be removed. A chisel, heavy wire cutters, or needle nose pliers work well to remove the ring clips. If the rotor doesn't just fall off in your hand, give it a little love tap with a hammer to loosen it and you should be all set. Please let us know how it goes. Thanks.

If you can grab the front of the a/c. Not the pulley, but the clutch plate that drives the compressor. You should be able to turn it by hand in either direction. If you can't then the compressor is locked up. This is the reason the car dies

I have a 2006 mitsubishi galant and the brake light keeps coming on when I turn corners. Just wondering what are the possibilities?


I had the same problem with my 2006 Galant, it turned out to be the first indication that my front driver-side brake pad needed to be replaced. I suggest you get it fixed soon- I continued to drive it for too long after that started happening, that I had to replace the rotor as well.
