REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4
- Remove the brake master cylinder reservoir cap.
- Siphon and recycle approximately half the fluid from the reservoir.
- Raise and support the vehicle safely.
- Remove the wheel(s).
- Remove the caliper.
- On front rotors, insert two bolts into the threaded holes and tighten evenly to loosen the rotor from the hub. This will press the rotor off the hub.
- Rear rotors are a slip fit onto the hub. Simply pull the rotor off the hub.
- Use a wire brush to clean the hub mounting surfaces, then apply a coating of anti-seize compound to the hub. This prevents the rotor from rusting to the hub.
- Install the rotor on the hub.
- Position the caliper with the torque member attached on the knuckle.
- Install the torque member bolts and tighten to 53-72 ft. lbs. (72-97 Nm) on front brakes or 28-38 ft. lbs. (38-52 Nm) on rear brakes.
Failure 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 the lug nuts properly.
- Lower the vehicle.
- Fill the master cylinder reservoir with fresh, clean brake fluid and install the cap.
- Pump the brake pedal to seat the brake pads.
- Bleed the brake system.
Using a brake rotor micrometer or Vernier caliper, measure the rotor thickness in several places around the rotor.
Mount a magnetic base dial indicator to the strut and zero the indicator stylus on the face of the rotor. Turn the rotor 360 degrees by hand and record the run-out.
On rear rotors, attach the dial indicator using the lug nuts to hold it flush to the hub during run-out measurement.
Compare measurements to the Brake Specifications chart. If the thickness and run-out are not within specifications, replace the rotor.
