If the rotor is behind the flange then you will need to remove the hub . Its 4wd so remove the bolt and the axle from the hub first.

WHy dose my brake pedal push back and make a grinding noise


Look through the openings in your front wheels and look at the front rotors-are they gouged up? You are probably running metal-to-metal, pads to rotors.
Chances are real good your rotors will have to be replaced along with new pads, but if you catch it early enough you might be able to have them machined, although nowadays that is hardly easy to get done and the savings usually is not as significant as it once was.

Need to repace front brakes and rotors, the car only has 31000 miles on it!!


The brake pads are well within a good long life. Brake wear life depends on a number of factors, the most significant is the driver. Most people feel that they are easy on brakes and that is usually not true...

Rotors are damaged by: normal wear; waiting too long for pads and damage from metal to metal contact; and HEAT. Heat damages rotors and causes them to warp. Cars now days have less material on the rotors and therefore they have shorter life.

On some vehicles it is only slightly more to replace rotors, versus resurfacing them. A resurfaced rotor has less material, so warping happens faster.....Some shops just routinely replace rotors, rather than resurface for just this reason.

Other shops routinely replace calipers, which can be agrued either way, but a caliper that hangs slightly will cause rotor warp. My preference is to replace calipers when they need it, by leaking or binding....

2000 Buick LeSabre - the rotors were replaced at about 80,000 miles and since that time, rotors only last about 8-10,000 miles before they need turning or have to be replaced. The mechanics don't seem to...


Who else has been driving this car besides you? Most of the rotors that get slight warpage is due to drivers that drive fast and follow close. Excessive braking and making quick stops then holding you foot down heavly on the pedal at stops will warp the rotors. They get red hot and when you press red hot metal it will give.The calipers are pressing the metal every time you stop. Excessive pressure on the pads while foot is off of the pedal may be due to the front brake hoses as the inner core will collapse and will keep pressure on the caliper. I have seen this a lot on gm trucks.

350z Rotors need to be cut at only 10K miles


Your rotors should be fine but it also depends on who turned the rotors and how they were done.Considering the dealer replaced the pads they probably used a metallic pad which have been known to be a noisy .Id suggest you have a repair shop resurface your rotors again and install some ceramic brake pads.

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

Rumbul nnoise in front when brakes are appled


The brake pad is worn down to the rivet that holds the pad to the base.
The metal rivets are in contact with the metal brake rotor.
Metal-against-metal...
Replace both front brake pads and at least one rotor.
You should be able to see both front rotors w/o removing the wheels.
The rotor with rings like Saturn (the planet) is the one to replace.

Replace soon before the other rotor meets the same fate.

Hope this helps!

Premature brake wear on my 2005 Honda Civic


What it sounds like is you have very poor quality pads on the car. The subject of brake pads can go on for days. If it was me I would buy a top of the line name brand pads , if the rotors can be turned the turn them or replace them. Also struts and shocks that are old affect the brakes and stopping distance. I think someone has just sold you poor quality brakes. and if your rotors are warpped this will cause the wiggle you feel when stopping.

Front brake rotor removal and replacement


First you have to remove the caliper and then the wheel bearing. If you don't know how to do that, I can provide details for that too. After the caliper and wheel bearings are off, the hub and disk will slip off the spindle. I believe the hub and the disk on the 2007 are separable. Call a brake service center, they can sell you the parts or refer you to a local distributor.
