    Unfortunately, I noticed, the data online at Autozone.com and Chilton is not published for removing the rotor after removing the caliper and pads.



    If it's a floating rotor, it should just come off at this point with a little bit of tapping with a hammer.

    If it is held on by a nut then that will have to be removed before removing the bearings and what not on it.



    I have never changed a rotor on this vehicle to know whether it is floating or attached with a nut that has to be removed.



    If it's held on to the hub assembly with friction, you may have to get a slide hammer to take the rotor off of the hub assembly.



    That is all I know about this one.



    Good luck on the repair.

    You'll have to take a closer look at the rotor to see how it is mounted.

    If you go to the parts store or dealer and they stock your rotor, then you can tell if it is floating by the fact that there won't be any studs attached to it, just holes.



    If the rotor has studs already in it, then it may be the type that comes off by unscrewing a nut and getting at the bearings which will have to be repacked.



    If the rotor has splines in the middle, it will have to be removed with a slide hammer. This is kind of like a 1970's Honda Accord if it is that way.

    Also, if you go to the parts department of Mitsubishi, I'm sure they have an exploded view of the rotor on their computer.

    Also, if it's 4 wheel drive, that can make a difference as well on how the rotor is attached.
    I've never removed a front rotor on a Mitsubishi 4 wheel drive Montero Sport.

    I don't know why they don't publish more information on it. It certainly makes it harder to work on.

    Good luck on the repair.

How do I eplace the front rotors on a 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4wd? Is there a special tool required to remove and replace the rotor and is there an adjustment needed inside the hub?


jack up the car, first break lugs, and remove tire. There are two bolts on the front back side, if it like are endeavor then I compressed the caliper piston and then I had to take apart the caliper as the old pads did not come out, those are the two bolts on each end. then put back on. Once the caliper is off the rotor will come off as it is held on by the caliper. Just be careful with the caliper once it is removed as it is a brake line, you can use a hanger for it does not pull on the line when it is off the rotor. Good Luck Tim
