Change front rotors on 97aurora


I hope you mean change front rotors, AND change front disc pads...This front brake set-up is fairly easy for a novice to do also. Why mention rotors? Are you experiencing a vaibration when applying the brake pedal? Yes, this is a sign of warped, worn out rotors...also inspect caliper piston movement, and top off brake reservoir after parts change. The caliper hold down bracket must be removed to change the rotors...2 bolts with good breaker bar, maybe 16 17mm socket and 13mm socket for removal of the caliper (2) bolts...lubricate and clean all parts and slide pins...be sure to thoroughly spray new rotors with brake parts cleaner before installing...this removes the packing oil from the rotors...(will ruin new brake pads and smell) Hope this helps.

What size Allen wrench for 2001 escape front caliper?


i just changed my front rotors and pads on my 2001 escape, 6 cylinder. everyone was wrong on the wrench sizes, including the idiots at my local ford dealer. to get the brake calipers off I needed a 7mm hex bit. to get the caliper bracket off I needed an 18mm socket, it was a very easy job but check your wrench sizes first, it seems that every year and model uses different sizes.

I have a 2000 Passat and going to have my friend replace the rotors and breaks. I am preparing to fix it but want to know what sizes are the bolts for the calipers sliding pins. If you know the Bolt s


For a wrench or for the acctual bolt size.
To remove front pads..you need 8mm allen socket to pull the caliper guide pins, then 17 or 18mm..To remove rear pads...you need 13mm socket for lock bolt on guide pins and 15mm open end wrench (thin section to hold guide pin while you remove lock bolts..I ground down a spare wrench). You DO NOT have to remove rear carriers to change rotors..just remove lock screw and angle rotor out. The B5 Passats don't have the electronic parking brake so you don't need VAG Com to change pads.
Installation tips:
Clean and regrease the guide pins with "synthetic caliper grease"
Rear lock bolts come with preapplied thread locker and "are not to be reused"..I just wire brush the threads and use some Loctite Blue on em. I smear just a little antisieze on the inside bore of the rotors and on the lock screw threads to prevent corrosion and make next rotor change ez. Torques:
Front caliper guide pins:18 ft lb
Front carrier bolts: 89 ft lb
Rear guide pin lock bolts:26 ft lb
Wheel lugs: 89 ft lb

Changing brakes and rotors


Remove te cross pins that hold the caliper and the brake pads in place, then remove the caliper bracket, there are 2 bolts at the backside, then the rotro just slides off, clean any rust on the rotor mount area while the rotor is off, then using a large clamp depress the piston in the brake caliper and reinstall in reverse order, one word of caution, use quality replacement parts, Wagner is very good, if you don't use good parts you will end up with poor brake performance.
