SOURCE: How do I eplace the front rotors on a 1997

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

Vibration of steering wheel while bracking in Mistzubishi montero sports 2012


if you have a vibration only while braking and only in the steering wheel then you have warped front rotors causing the problem. there was a time when you could have the rotors turned and reused. but the way they make rotors now(too thin to start with) you will have to replace them, make sure the wheel nuts are torque to spec.

Not hard at all. Simply remove the brake caliper and then unbolt the hub (rotor). Pull it off and then put the replacement on.

I cannot get the back rotor off


Rear wheels are more suseptible to corrosion than are the front. A corrosion ring forms between the brake rotor and the wheel hub assembly. Use a large rubber mallet or a baby sledge to hit along the top edge of the rotor in order to break the corrosion ring. Some care may be needed if you are trying to re-use the rotor after they are turned down, otherwise you can hit the rotor much harder, and they should break free.

If not, apply some heat to the seam area between the rotor and hub. It will smoke, but do not get it red hot. Remove the heat and try using the hammer once again. Be careful not to grab the hot portion of the rotor when it breaks free.

Front brake rotor removal


Your rotors have an integrated hub with serviceable bearing.

Remove the six bolts around the center of the hub and pry off the grease cover.

behind it you will find a locking wheel with two philips screws holding it in position. Remove the screws and unscrew the locking wheel.

Behind is a large axle locknut that requires a special tool to remove. It has two small holes to grip with. Unscrew it and you will be able to remove the outer bearing, then slide the rotor off the spindle/axle.

From there you can unbolt the rotor disc from the hub backside, or replace the whole unit. Replacing the whole unit will require installing new bearings/races, however.

Either method will require repacking the bearings and loading the bearings with the special locknut tool.
