After removing caliper and caliper mounting bracket, on the rotor close to the wheel studs there will be one or two small screws remove and slide rotor off, some time you will need to knock them out with a hammer.

I bought some of those rotors from E-Bay , they were chineese junk,so be careful to not get cheap ones.also the slotted rotors wear the pads out much quicker. If you can find a shop that will resurface the old ones they will last much longer

Is there any difference between replacing front breaks/ rotors in an 87 cougar and any other car? Autozone tells me the wheel bearing and hub assembly are all part of the rotor. Is this true? Is it any...

This the old fashioned rotor. The hub is part of the rotor and there will be an inner and outer bearing. In order to replace the rotor the old bearings will need to be removed from the old rotor, cleaned, inspected, repacked, and then reinstalled in the new rotor along with a new grease seal.

Most newer vehicles have whats called a knock off rotor. This type of rotor simply slips off from the hub assembly once the brake caliper is removed.

The thickness would have a lot to do with the vibration, that is why we always replace and recommend that both sides are replaced at the same time, it could also be the caliper being ba, but try replacing the other side before changing the caliper.

Having trouble bleeding brakes on 1997 olds bravada. bled all four still pedal goes to floor. any suggestions?

Are the rotors worn? Worn rotors and new pads will sometimes cause this. The pad sits across the ridges and no matter how much you bleed the system the pedal just wont stiffen up. (See diagram. A - New pads, B - Rotor, C - Ridge)
If you did not install new pads you may also want to check the master cylinder seals. First bleed the system at the pipes that connect to the master. If the rotors are ok, you've bled the master cylinder and the problem persists then replace the seals or the complete master cylinder.

Thanks for your answer. I am wondering though. If my car was shuddering prior to my replacing the pads and rotors and the shuddering occured only when applying the brakes and usually happened when I braked...

Take a look at all the rotors now since you have replaced them. If you notice any unusal wear on one or more rotors, then i would say either the rotor is defective or the brake caliper is at fault. Even with new rotors it does not mean that they are perfect. They may be out of round or they was cut wrong. The problem would even get worse with a caliper piston trying to stick from time to time. Take a little time and inspect each roter inside and out for any kind of unusal wear. Hope this will help you.

Please help....I replaced the front brake pads on my 07 Saturn Aura because there was a squeaking sound. I took the old pads off and there was plenty of meat left and the rotors look very good. I didnt...

check the dust shield that is behind the rotor. It should be attached to the steering knuckle. if it is bent and touching the rotor it will squeak. I would jack the passenger side of the car up and remove the wheel. Once you have done that try to spin the rotor. Try to get it to squeak. It may also be dirt on your brake pads. If it came back after a week it is most likely dirt. Try a couple cans of Braklean while you have it apart.
