REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
- Raise the vehicle and support safely. Remove appropriate wheel assembly.
- Remove the caliper and brake pads. Support the caliper out of the way using wire, it is not necessary to disconnect the brake line from the caliper.
- For rear disc brake rotor, disconnect the parking brake connection at the rear caliper assembly.
- The rotor on some models is held to the hub by 2 small threaded screws. Remove screws, if equipped, and pull the rotor from the hub assembly.
- Installation is the reverse of the removal process.
Using a micrometer, measure the disc thickness at eight positions, approximately 45 degrees apart and 0.39 in. (10mm) in from the outer edge of the disc. The minimum thickness is 0.882 in. (22.4mm) for front rotors or 0.331 in. (8.4mm), with a maximum thickness variation of 0.0006 in. (0.015mm).
If the disc is beyond limits for thickness, remove it and install a new one. If the thickness variation exceeds the specifications, replace the disc or turn rotor with on the car type brake lathe.
