SOURCE: replacing front rotors on 2004 mitsubishi galant

Sandy, I can only assume that you have fixed whatever issue you were having by now since this post is about 4 months old but, I'd like to give an answer anyway. In order to remove the rotors you obviously have to remove the wheel first. Next you have to remove the brake caliper. To do that you usually need to slightly compress the caliper by squeezing it with a large C-clamp. After it's loose, remove the two hex head bolts, one upper and one lower, that hold the caliper in place. At this point there might be a small ring clip or two around one or two of the lug nut studs that need to be removed. A chisel, heavy wire cutters, or needle nose pliers work well to remove the ring clips. If the rotor doesn't just fall off in your hand, give it a little love tap with a hammer to loosen it and you should be all set. Please let us know how it goes. Thanks.

SOURCE: How do you remove the

I am unsure if it is the same as the model that we have here,but there are a standard set of procedures that apply to removing any brake rotor.
1.With the vehicle jacked up and sitting safely on a stand to avoid falling on you,and the road wheel off.
2.Remove the brake caliper and the assembly that holds this to the hub/suspension assembly.Hang this on a wire or hook to avoid damaging the brake hose with the weight.
3.the rotor will either be a 'floating' type and can be pulled off by hand(sometimes you may have to break the seal of rust on the hub center by striking the rotor face with a soft faced hammer or rubber mallet).Or it may be fixed to the hub with a couple of screws or bolts.The screws are best loosened with a shock tool as they are usually tight and may also be partially seized in threads.
I hope that this helps you,otherwise get back to me with your findings and will endeavour to get correct instructions to you.

Replacing brakes on a 2007 dodge grand caravan se


Front brakes are pretty easy, just go to http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=37 for step-by-step instructions with pictures. On the bolts that it tells you to remove, it says they are 17mm, on the caravan they will take a 12mm socket to remove (at least on my 2007 short wheel base SE). The only issue I have with this site is it does not tell you how to remove rotors, and I NEVER replace brake pads without having my rotors turned or replaced. after you have swung the caliper up like the instructions on the website tell you to, you'll notice the rotors are still held in place by the caliper mounting bracket. It is held on with two large bolts that bolt in from the back. If I remember right, they are a 3/4" or 19mm socket. If they've been on for a while (my first brake change was at 48,000 miles) then you will need WD40, a big socket wrench, and a lot of elbow grease to get those loose. Once that's free, you can easily remove the rotors. I would take them to Checker or another local auto parts store that turns rotors, they will let you know if they can be turned or if they need to be replaced. If you get new rotors, don't forget to clean them off with brake cleaner before installing them!!! They are coated with an anti-rust chemical that is very sticky and will smoke for miles and affect your braking. For rear brakes (assuming they are drums, if not, they will be the same as the front), there is a pretty good tutorial at http://trashcars.net/videos/1436/how-to-replace-rear-drum-brakes.html. You should also have your drums turned or replaced when you replace the rear brake shoes as well.
