Question about 1988 Nissan Pathfinder
Well depending on your machanical ability you should be able to pull this off. First things first. When you have the rig jacked high enough to take the wheel off. Place a jack stand under the A frame. Or block up under neath , let the jeep down with the jack until it is firm and can not fall down on you. Remove the wheel. You have to remove the calaper. This holds the disk pads 2 long bolts on the back side of calaper have to be removed. Now try rocking the caliper back and forth as you pull up on the part. If your lucky it will just lift off. If not. you will need to back out the bleader screw. this is a nippel looking, drain spout, for the break fluid. Fluid should run out a little. Now with a flat bar spreed a part the caliper so it is lose on the roter, becareful not to chip the break pad.
Hopefully its removed by now. In the center of the rotter is a metal cap. Remove the cover which looks like a cup. Use a flat blade screw driver and hammer , place the blade next to the rotter surface and between the cap. tap it all around the edges and pry it off.In side you will find a nut with a cotter pin, remove the nut, and pull the rotter off its Axel . The bearing that came out with the rotter needs to be kept clean wrap it up in a rag. when you put this back to gather. put in a new one if it needs it. A good parts man at the local store can tell you if it needs to be changed. 1 more thing after you put it back together you will need to purge the air from you brake line . If you opened the bleeder valve. They call this bleeding the breaks.You will need a helper with this.Tighten up the bleeder valve,With some one in the **** pit have them pump up the break pedal until it is as hard as they can get it. Tell them to hold it there firm with out letting off. Next you need to turn back out the Valve and let the air and fluid out. have something on the floor to catch the oil. That some one who is holding the brake down should feel the pedal go down slightly. now tighten it back up, as so not to pull air back into the line. Repeat e few times until just a steady stream of oil, squirts out. Your breaks should be ready except for refilling the break fluid [oil] at the reservoir. There you have it, except for a few scraped knuckles and a few harsh words.
Good luck please rate me Thanks DFD
