    In order to review old rotors it appears the caliper bracket needs to come off. The nuts on the back side seem to be an odd size and very difficult to remove. Any suggestions?

For tools you'll need a set of metric sockets and wrenchs pry bar or large screw driver a small to med. hammer, and since you,ll most likly install new pads a C clamp to compress the
caliper piston. Next, chalk the wheels and jack up the side you want to do first and put a stand under it. Once the wheel is off you will see a spring clip across the front of the caliper, remove
the clip, be careful not to bend it. Next remove the 2 caliper mounting bolts(the smaller 2 of the 4) and remove the caliper you may need to use the pry bar to work it back+forth until it's
free. Next, remove the pads and place 1 pad over the caliper piston then use the C clamp(screw end to the pad)to compress
the piston be sure the clamp won't touch the brake hose or fitting. Next remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket and remove. Check the base of the wheel studs for small round clips, if you see any remove them or break them off.
And remove the roter. Reverse the procedure to install the new roter. Repeat the procedure for the other side. Hope this is what you needed to know. Good luck.

My car camry 2003 runs well usually but sometimes the car trembles or gives trembling noise when the brake is applied.


will try to help.your front brakes and rotors may need replacement. when you apply brakes say,at 40 mph do you feel vibration on brake pedal or shaking in steering wheel? the vibration comes from worn or warped front brake rotors. while you have those rotors replaced,go ahead and have new front brakes applied also,or else you'll still have brake problems.always ask to see old parts when you have brakes and rotors unless you have a complety trustable mechanic! the rotors will be round and silver,a very bad brake rotor will have grooves cut in it.always shop for best price at different shops to get a picture of the price for replacement! do not be afraid to ask questions! front brake pads can cost anywhere fron $20.00 to $45.00 rotors can cost $40.00 to $50.00 each there will only be 2 rotors on the front and the brakes are complete for the front,both sides,on the front. as a general rule you'll replace your front brakes twice before you'll need to replace the back brakes because most of you stopping power comes from the front brakes. and as always,if you need further assistance please contact an expert!thank you for choosing fixya.com

How to remove a rusted rotor on a hub? i want to takethe hub off and get the rotor pressed.. any thoughts 99 ford Expedition front rotors..


Are you talking about the front rotors? The hub and rotor are one assembly and do not seperate on that truck. If you need to replace one part, the replacement part will have the hub and rotor together.

When applying the brakes, the whole car shimmys. replaced rear rotors , turned front rotors , and replaced all the pads


I think you should get the Tierod ends checked. When you get a Front-end alignment, the mechanic will check them. Although you turned the front Rotors, when you start Braking the front tires can wander differently than when they freewheel.

Sometimes you can get a rust problem on the Rotors that were just made shiny. Moisture on the pads imprints a rust blotch on the Rotor and they grab at the rust until the rust wears down. Then they are ok.

When the rear Rotors were replaced check your bill and see if the Emergency brake shoes were changed. The E brakes should have been adjusted when the Rotors were replaced. The Shimmy you describe can also be the ABS working. The ABS is a pulsating Brake action.

Get your front-end checked first, then as the mechanic road tests it when the Alignment is complete, he can judge the brakes.,

I have a crunching sound coming from the front wheels when applying the brakes at a low speed and only after I drive the car a few miles


sounds like the pads have worn down, or there's debris between the pads & rotor. in my personal experience, the stock rotors from hyundai don't hold up very well. i replaced pads (front and rear) at around 45K miles, and had the stock rotors turned down. less than 1K miles later, the front rotors were already warped! there have been many complaints about hyundai's rotors, so i replaced mine with a set of raybestos rotors and also put ceramic pads up front. 20K miles later, they're still working great.

When coming to a slow stop my car jerks back and forth. front rotors have been turned and back rotors have been replaced. it stopped for about a day no continues to ****


It's possibly......

.....1st, out of parallel rotors.......They may need replacing ....not just resurfacing.

.......2nd, a bent hub....."the part the rotor sits on".

......3rd, a bent rim....... "try switching the rims and tires front to back.

.......4th, a bad belt in a tire(s)....."try switching the tires front to
back".

If it was smooth for a day after turning (resurfacing ) the rotors....I'd go with replacing the rotors first.
(use quality parts......not import China rotors)

Rumbul nnoise in front when brakes are appled


The brake pad is worn down to the rivet that holds the pad to the base.
The metal rivets are in contact with the metal brake rotor.
Metal-against-metal...
Replace both front brake pads and at least one rotor.
You should be able to see both front rotors w/o removing the wheels.
The rotor with rings like Saturn (the planet) is the one to replace.

Replace soon before the other rotor meets the same fate.

Hope this helps!

Replace front rotor


If it is like most cars the rotor slips over the hub. If not remove the hub and see if there is a bolt there. You have to hit it pretty hard, like with a small sledge hammer with a block of wood against the rotor.
