Remove wheel, Brake caliper then the Brake caliper support bracket. Then Rotor slides right off of Wheel studs. Remember to support vehicle properly, and to make sure brake calipers are fully compressed before removing. After caliper is removed try try to support it out of the way. Then on the bake of the brake caliper support bracket there are 2 bolts. Remove them and the rotor will have room to be removed from drive axle hub. Hope this helps and have a great day.

    Respectfully disagree with the need to remove the caliper suport bracket. There are two holes on the caliper with M8x1.25 threads to be used with "jacking bolts" Use bolts in those holes to press the rotor off of the hub. Use plenty of penetrating oil on the threads as they will be rusty. Work the bolts in and out patiently. When you hear the "pop" you should be able to pull the rotor off by hand. Do not remove the caliper support bracket- to do so would turn this novice-level job into something too difficult for most driveway-weekend mechanics.

How do you replace front the wheel bearing?


Remove the caliper and rotor, undo the axle, ball joint and the two strut bolts, and take the entire knuckle off. The hub is pressed off, then a circlip removed to press the bearing out. You need a hydraulic press to do this job.

How do you change a rotor on a 1997 subaru legacy


Jack the car up and place a jack stand under the car for safety. Remove the tire and wheel from the car. Remove the caliper from the caliper mount (2 bolts on front wheels one bolt on rear wheels), secure the caliper out of the way with a wire, then remove the caliper mount. Then pull the rotor from the hub, if this is difficult take a hammer and tap the rotor until it is loose. Reverse procedure to complete installation.

Check wheel bearing.
Check backing brake plate , sometimes it's bended and touching brake rotor.
If wheel bearing is bad , you may have same effect with backing plate , brake rotor touch backing plate.

1993 Subaru Legacy Wagon: Bumpy Brakes


Your '93 Legacy was one of the first cars to provide ABS as standard. If your ABS is activating, you'll feel a fast pulsing feel when braking, is that what you experience? 
If it's more of a brake pedal movement that changes frequency with the cars change of speed, and when moving slowly it feels slower and more pronounced, you likely have a warped rotor. 
An ABS issue should be checked out by a Subaru mechanic. If it's the rotor, then the offending rotor will have to be machined or replaced. If you can identify the rotor that's warped (with the car on stands, rig up a steel ruler so that it touches the rotor, and spin the wheel by hand. If it touches intermittently, then the rotor is warped) you may be able to remove it yourself (buy a workshop manual for instructions) and bring it to a brake shop and have it machined. This is far cheaper than they doing the whole job. 
However, if you're not comfortable with these suggestions, then have a brake shop do it for you. This is an important safety device (obviously) and worth the money to have it done correctly. Early Legacy's are pretty much bullet-proof and last forever, so the investment will be worthwhile.
Hope this helps.
