How to remove rear rotor on lincoln avaitor


remove the rim, take off the brake caliper, sometimes there is a small screw in the rotor that will need to be removed. after that they are usually stuck on pretty good so you will need a big hammer to brake the old rotor loose from the hub. then replace.

Is it ok to replaced rear Rotors with out replacing break pads?


OK if they are smooth and thick. It's not dangerous; it doesn't cause uneven braking, but I wouldn't advise putting very ridged pads back in - as they will tend to accelerate the wear on the disc/rotor. You CAN take the worst of the ridges out with a file, if you can use a file accurately and don't taper the pad... Don't use emery paper as some abrasive will remain in the pad and wear the disc/rotor. Also if the pads are very worn down, they will wear away quicker and could damage your new disc/rotor.

I have a 1999 pathfinider how to you get to the rotors to replace


You will need to take off your lug nuts first and take off the tire. Take off the break pads and take off the caliper. This will give you access to the rotor. The rotor should just slide out. It could be stuck. You will need a pretty good hammer. On the back part, you can spray some PB on it or WD-40. Spray the middle where it is on the axle. Use the hammer to knock the rotor off. If you are keeping the rotor, don't do it this way. You can use the rotor tool to get it off if you have one. The hammer needs to have a rubber bottom. If your still going to use the rotor, be careful hitting it. It could just pull out but it is probably going to stick. Use the lubricant and let it set for a half and hour. Then try to pull it off. If needed, repeat this last step. If you have a question, let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

Replacing brakes on a 2007 dodge grand caravan se


Front brakes are pretty easy, just go to http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=37 for step-by-step instructions with pictures. On the bolts that it tells you to remove, it says they are 17mm, on the caravan they will take a 12mm socket to remove (at least on my 2007 short wheel base SE). The only issue I have with this site is it does not tell you how to remove rotors, and I NEVER replace brake pads without having my rotors turned or replaced. after you have swung the caliper up like the instructions on the website tell you to, you'll notice the rotors are still held in place by the caliper mounting bracket. It is held on with two large bolts that bolt in from the back. If I remember right, they are a 3/4" or 19mm socket. If they've been on for a while (my first brake change was at 48,000 miles) then you will need WD40, a big socket wrench, and a lot of elbow grease to get those loose. Once that's free, you can easily remove the rotors. I would take them to Checker or another local auto parts store that turns rotors, they will let you know if they can be turned or if they need to be replaced. If you get new rotors, don't forget to clean them off with brake cleaner before installing them!!! They are coated with an anti-rust chemical that is very sticky and will smoke for miles and affect your braking. For rear brakes (assuming they are drums, if not, they will be the same as the front), there is a pretty good tutorial at http://trashcars.net/videos/1436/how-to-replace-rear-drum-brakes.html. You should also have your drums turned or replaced when you replace the rear brake shoes as well.

Removal of front rotors? have caliper off and center nut and rotor screws.


if there are two small srews going through the rotor then its probably froze to the hub. smack it pretty hard from the back with a baby sledge in see if she budges. i know some cars have captured rotors which require u to remove the steering knuckle from the car. the replacement rotors should tell u and if not the guy selling them to u should know if theyre hat style or captured. chances are they're just rusty as hell and u may have to beat them off every step of the way. hope this is helpful. air hammer helps sometimes too.

Changing brake rotors


If you have changed your brakes before this is actually pretty easy.

Firstly you need to get the brake pads out ...

Easiest way to do this is to loosen the caliper bolts found on the top and bottom of the caliper. Loosen the top a few turns but do not remove it completely...Loosen the bottom bolt and take it all the way out....

You should now be able to shift the caliper up and out of the way....once it is out of the way you can then undo the rotor bolts in the centre of the rotor.

Slide them out of the way and yank off the rotor...replace the old with the new, tighten the rotor bolts slide the caliper back into place, tighten the bolts...

You're done...

My car starts braking by itself, then starts smelling like an electrical fire, then smoke comes out of the front passenger tire?


In this case, it sounds a lot like you have a stuck caliper. I would recommend replacing the caliper, the rotor, and the brake pads, simply because the pads have gotten so hot and have been subject to so much hard friction, they've most likely worn down pretty well and are heat checked. The rotor on that side should probably be replaced as well, considering it's probably pretty heat-checked by now. I'm pretty confident that this should solve your problem.

I hope this helps and let me know if you need anything else! :)

Can't remove the rear brake rotors


It's pretty common for rotors to seize up on the hub. Spray the middle hole of the rotor/hub with penetrating oil (WD 40, etc.) and spray inside the lug holes. You may want to do this a few times and let the oil soak in. Take a large rubber mallet or dead blow hammer and hit around the perimeter of the rotor. This should loosen it up. Clean all brake areas with spray brake cleaner after, including the lugs. They should not have lubricant on them.
Hope this helps, if so Please rate. Thanks and Good Luck...

My front rotors are warped. How do I replace them?


Rotors are pretty simple, you just need to remove the two caliper mounting brackets, this can be done by removing the 2 bolts located behind the rotor, simply remove the 2 bolts from each side and the rotor will slide right off of the studs.

Shaking brakes


Your rotors are warped. You also probably need to brake pads. Take your rotors off and inspect them for cuts and grooves. If the surface is not flat you'll need new ones. If not take them to a machine shop and have them turned. Turning your rotors will cut them down until the surface is perfectly flat and not warped. The shaking is cause when the rotors are warped and you press the brakes and the rotor applies more pressure where it's high and less where it's low, thus causes it to shake
