    Have to pull the front wheels, next back out the two caliper bolts (Allen head), next slide the caliper out of it's seat and set up on the spindle, careful not to damage the flex brake line. This will now free the rotor to come off the spindle. This is also a good time to check/replace brake pads. Chances are if your changing rotors, due to brake damage, warped or other, the pads need changed. This is simply done by sliding the old pads out and placing a C clamp over the piston to back it into the caliper housing to allow room to install new pads. Apply a little antisieze lub behind the pad between the piston and also anywhere the new pad bears. Install the caliper in reverse order and put the wheels back on. Remember to test the brakes before hitting the road, The new pads will have to be pushed out by applying brakes a few times. Then you should be good to go.

    Hope this helps.

Brake squeal


You, Probably will, Brake Squeal is NOT a new problem.
Disc brake's have been Squealing since, They, became
factory installed on chevrolet in 1971. Before, that they,
were a option. In 72 they even had a bulleton how, to
FIX it. And, no it didn't work.
With That said, Any time you replace Brake pads you,
should always re-surface the Rotors.
Why? First you may start to notice a pulsation as the
pads ware (sometimes! ) The best way to avoid, brake
squeal is to manchine the Rotors put, the blue membrain
sealent on the back side of the pads. And hope that works!!
Some brakes Pads squeal JUST SQUEAL??
You, Could do the same Brake job the same as you did
this one and, they may NOT Squeal.WHY, I WISH I NEW. They
sell all types of STUFF to stop Brake noice DON'T waste your $$.

If the calipers are off the rotors should be cleared for take off. haha a little airplane humor. I have had issues like this because of brake dust and rust. Sometime it takes several rotations of the rotor where your hitting it to keep loosening the ****.
