SOURCE: replacing front rotors on 2004 mitsubishi galant

Sandy, I can only assume that you have fixed whatever issue you were having by now since this post is about 4 months old but, I'd like to give an answer anyway. In order to remove the rotors you obviously have to remove the wheel first. Next you have to remove the brake caliper. To do that you usually need to slightly compress the caliper by squeezing it with a large C-clamp. After it's loose, remove the two hex head bolts, one upper and one lower, that hold the caliper in place. At this point there might be a small ring clip or two around one or two of the lug nut studs that need to be removed. A chisel, heavy wire cutters, or needle nose pliers work well to remove the ring clips. If the rotor doesn't just fall off in your hand, give it a little love tap with a hammer to loosen it and you should be all set. Please let us know how it goes. Thanks.

SOURCE: changing front brakes on 2004 mitsubishi endeavor

if you have floating rotors in the front then no.

But if you have locking hub units in the front then yes the bearing will have to come apart.

But if there is only one nut and you can see the threads through the wheel then no you have floating rotors, and sometimes are rusted to wheel bearing and are a pain to get off. Call the parts department and ask whether these are floating rotors or not. This will clarify everything

SOURCE: how to change rear brake shoe pads of 2005 mitsubishi lancer

Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!

Why are my rotors making noise after i changed my breaks


There can be several reasons.

1. Glazing on the disks, if you didn't have them re-surfaced.
2. The anti-squeal shims are improperly installed.
3. Didn't use any of the brake quiet on the backs of the pads.
4. Didn't properly seat the pads after installation.
5. Running a premium high performance pad(ceramic, or high metal content)

If you already did the brakes and rotor something else in that wheel is loose. Check for ball joints being worn out. how about wheel being out of balance maybe due to pot holes this winter? Also try this
find a place on that corner of the car where you can push down on the car to load the suspension (find somewhere that won't hurt the car like top of the shocks under the hood) while bouncing up and down watch the steering wheel. If it is moving something is damaged in the suspension. If this helps please reply
good luck

I have a 2006 mitsubishi galant and the brake light keeps coming on when I turn corners. Just wondering what are the possibilities?


I had the same problem with my 2006 Galant, it turned out to be the first indication that my front driver-side brake pad needed to be replaced. I suggest you get it fixed soon- I continued to drive it for too long after that started happening, that I had to replace the rotor as well.
