Check this procedure about REMOVAL & INSTALLATION (see Figure 1)

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove 2 / 3 of the brake fluid from the brake reservoir using a clean syringe or equivalent.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  4. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and bearing assembly.
  5. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  6. Remove the caliper and suspend it from the strut with a wire hook or suitable piece of wire. Do NOT disconnect the brake hose or allow the caliper to hang from the brake line!
If the original rotor is still on the vehicle, it may be retained with star washers, so you must remove and discard these retaining washers.
  1. Remove the rotor assembly by sliding it off the hub. If it is stuck on, use penetrating oil and tap lightly until free.

Fig. 1: The rotor can be removed by sliding it straight off the lug studs

To install:

  1. Install the brake rotor over the hub assembly.
  2. Install the brake caliper as outlined in this section.
  3. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Carefully lower the vehicle. Tighten the wheel lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm). If the lug nuts aren't tightened properly, the rotor will warp from heat, causing premature wear and noise.
  5. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the FULL level with the correct type of DOT 3 brake fluid from a clean, unsealed container.
  6. Firmly depress the brake pedal three times before moving the vehicle.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

Sounds like caliper seized or is binding. More than likely you'll have to replace caliper and rotor re surfaced.

When at higher speeds and when I brake the stearing wheel shakes. Why?


warped rotors. it is caused by braking too much and the metal rotors heat up and warp. nothing to be concerned about but is also a simple fix. change the rotors.

1999 pontiac bonn vibrates violently on take-off


Is this a manual tranny or an automatic? I'm guessing an automatic. If thats the case what you are feeling is worn clutches in the tranny. or a badly worn pilot bushing, 'i can only assume you tend to hammer the throttle a bit correct? Why not it's a boss car.However these problems will raise their ugly heads on occasion. Good luck, Dana

All shops will tell you that you need to turn or replace the front rotors when you do brakes. I personally only replace rotors, and only if I get shaking in the steering wheel when I apply the brakes. In answer to your question 75 to 125$ us for a brake job including pads and turning the rotors.
