Same as most cars-remove brake caliper then 2 bolts holding caliper bracket-may have to use pusher bolts to remove rotor

You Can probably accomplish this yourself if you have a brake pad warning light or ABS/ASC light on you may need a BMW tech to reset the system to complete the job.

2004 Mini CooperS- brake service light stays on


Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights

325 ci brake rotors have been replaced 4 times in 6 years


BMW rotors are not known for lasting very much more than 30-45k miles. When the brakes are inspected, they measure the pads using a special tool threw the outer brake pad. Min spec is 3mm. When the pads are replaced, they measure the thickness of the rotors. The rotor spec is stamped on the rotor. if they are under that spec, they recommend replacing them as well. Next time you bring it in for service, just ask them to measure the rotor thinkness, (its not a huge task, all they have to do is take the wheels off). But more often than not, the rotors wear just as fast as the pads.

How to replace front brakes on 2004 BMW 325ci


If it's like most BMW brake rotors you don't remove the center nut to remove the rotor. You should see a slotted screw in the rotor a couple of inches out from the center. Remove it and the rotor comes off. Might have to tap rotor with a rubber mallet but it should come right off.
