First block the rear wheels so they won't roll.
2. Jack the front end up and put on jack stands don't trust the jack for long periods of time.
3. Remove front wheels and brake calipers.
4. In the center of the rotor as you look at it is a dust cover remove this
5. There should be a lock cap with a cotter pin thru it, remove the pin and lock cap
6. Remove the nut holding the bearings in place.
7. Remove rotor by pulling toward you, be careful the bearings will come out also, don't let them fall or get dirty.
8. There is a seal in the back of the rotor to give access to inner bearing.
9. Replace seals and repack inner and outer bearings and reverse to install. Being careful not to over tighten the front wheel bearings. If you do they wil sieze up then you have a real mess.

Changing the rotors how do you get them off


remove the wheel, remove the brake caliper (whole) just remove the two mounting bolts that hold it to the "hub"
theres one or two screws in the face of the rotor, unscrew them, pull it off - a rubber mallet might help!
Clean up the hub with a wire brush before fitting the new rotor. screw in the 2 screws on the face of the new rotor. Fit new brake pads and squeeze the pistons open to slide the caliper and pads over the new rotor, refit the two mounting bolts to the brake caliper, press the brake pedal to seat the pads on the rotor. refit and tighten the wheel, go for short drive and test the brake gently, if all is fine start on the second rotor, just repeat the process again.
LEAVE FEEDBACK PLEASE! Good Or Bad.

1995 2 WD NIssan Pathfinder front brake rotor replacement


If you are in need of replacing the front brake rotors on your Pathfinder it is an easy job, and here is how you can do it and save some money. First you will want to chock the wheels, loosen the lugs, jack the vehicle up, remove the wheel, remove the bolts that hold the wheel assembly to the caliper, there are 8 total, (you will want to have someone pressing the brake pedal so the wheel assembly will not turn during the bolt removal) then you will take the brake caliper, and assembly off. Then you will take the bearing dust cover off, you can do this by using a flat/common screwdriver and a hammer, (just make sure that you do not punture the dust cover) there you will see a keeper washer that has 2 screws in it, remove those screws, and use the flat/common screwdriver to take the washer out. You will now see what appears to be the same kind of washer, and you will notice that the spindle is threaded; using a metal punch, or a common screwdriver and a hammer you will use one of the holes on the nut and gently tap it free. Once you loosen and remove the nut the whole wheel assembly will come off (the wheel bearing needs to be kept free of debris, it will be the first thing that comes off when you pull the assembly off) and you will then be able to replace the rotor. This is a great time to replace the wheel assembly grease seals and bearings, if they are bad. Once you have replace the rotor, just reverse the steps above. When you are at the stage to reinstall the brake caliper, you will want to remove the top off of the master cylinder resivor and use a caliper spreader to open the caliper so it will fit over the new rotor.

Why does my 1996 nissan pathfinders pull to the right when I take my foot off the gas pedal when it is in two wheel drive but not in four wheel


My first thought would be that you have a brake that is sticking, or dragging, or not fully releasing (on the right, front side). In 2-WD it creates a drag on the right side that causes the vehicle to pull to the right.

In 4wd, the front wheels & all 4 wheels are effectively driven at the same speed, so it compensates for the dragging brake.

I'd start there, and also inspect the cv joints and front drive system to see if there is something out of kilter.

I'd consider front end alignment issues, but does not really sound like that is the issue.
