Question about 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara
I'm trying to remove a broken front brake disc, a rotor, on a Suzuki 2002 Vitara. I've stop at a point where there is this disc that has many holes on it. How do I take it off? Or can I just knock of the rotor from here on? Thank you so much for you response. Benaiah firstname.lastname@example.org

SOURCE: front brake rotor removal
Your rotors have an integrated hub with serviceable bearing.
Remove the six bolts around the center of the hub and pry off the grease cover.
behind it you will find a locking wheel with two philips screws holding it in position. Remove the screws and unscrew the locking wheel.
Behind is a large axle locknut that requires a special tool to remove. It has two small holes to grip with. Unscrew it and you will be able to remove the outer bearing, then slide the rotor off the spindle/axle.
From there you can unbolt the rotor disc from the hub backside, or replace the whole unit. Replacing the whole unit will require installing new bearings/races, however.
Either method will require repacking the bearings and loading the bearings with the special locknut tool.

Do you have a brake fluid accumulator(ABS)? If yes, the pistons/pulsing assembly are worn, and may need to be replaced.
If not, you may have a vacuum leak in the power booster (located on the firewall). Check all hose and clamps for a tight fit/cracks,etc. Vacuum leaks cause intermittent brake failure lights.
You may want to park the vehicle on a clean surface, pump the brakes a few times, and check for brake fluid leaks. If there is a leaking wheel cylinder (back brakes) , caliper (front brakes), or brake line, you will be able to see it.
Leaks cause pressure loss, and, thus, the brake warning light will illuminate.

it could be because they are dirty. also the noise could be the back brakes. if its a squeaking noise it could be that they are dirty or that they are cheep brake pads and for the first couple of weeks they squeak. also when you got your breaks changed did the break shop cut the rotors because that cleans them up and makes the rotors like new.

An impact driver, No. 3 phillips screwdriver bit, and a hammer may be needed to remove the retaining screw. It is fairly easy to destroy the screw slots using an ordinary phillips screwdriver to remove the tightly driven screw (see photo).
