Removal & Installation
- Raise and support the vehicle safely.
- Remove the wheels.
Remove the brake caliper and suspend it out of the way using a piece of wire.
NOTEIf excessive force must be used during front disc brake rotor removal, the front disc brake rotor should be checked for lateral run-out prior to installation.
- Remove the front disc brake rotor by pulling it evenly from the hub.
- If additional force is required to remove the rotor from the hub, apply a penetrating oil to the front and rear rotor-to-hub mating surfaces. Strike the rotor using a plastic hammer between the studs. If this does not work, remove the rotor using a 2-3 jaw puller.
Failure to clean rust and foreign material from the rotor and hub mounting faces when installing a rotor will result in high rotor lateral run-out.
- If a new rotor is being installed, remove the protective coating with brake cleaning fluid. If this coating is not removed, it will contaminate the brake pads.
- Apply a small amount of silicone grease to the pilot diameter of the front disc brake rotor.
- Install the brake rotor on the front wheel hub.
Install the brake caliper.
NOTEFailure to tighten the lug nuts to the proper torque in a star pattern may result in damage to the brake rotor.
- Install the wheel and tighten lug nuts to 83-112 ft. lbs. (113-153 Nm).
- Lower the vehicle.
- Pump the brake pedal to seat the brake pads.
