REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figure 1
- Raise the vehicle, support it with jackstands, and remove the wheel and tire assembly.
- Remove the brake caliper as previously outlined.
- Remove the dust cap and remove the wheel bearing nut after removing the cotter pin.
- Remove the wheel bearing, hub, and disc assembly from the spindle.
Install the disc, bearing, washer and nut. Adjust the wheel bearing as follows:
- Spin the wheel forward by hand. Torque the nut to 12 ft. lbs. to fully seat the bearings.
- Back off the nut 1 / 4 - 1 / 2 turn until it is just loose, the tighten the nut finger tight.
- Loosen the nut until either hole in the spindle lines up with a slot in the nut and then insert the cotter pin. This may appear to be too loose, but it is the correct adjustment.
- Proper adjustment creates a 0.001-0.005 in. (0.025-0.127mm) of end play.
See Figures 2 and 3
All brake rotors (discs) have a minimum thickness dimension cast into them, on the hub between the lugs. This is the minimum wear dimension and not a refinish dimension. Do not reuse a brake rotor that will not meet specifications. Replace with a new rotor.
Refinishing of brake rotors can be handled at machine shops equipped for brake work.
