Brake rotors


Hi I am not sure if this has been posted before however I am about to replace my old genuine rotors with new DBA type. Can anyone give me guidance on the procedure for this. Is the only thing holding the rotor on is the wheel nuts and brake caliper ?

Thanks

Re: Brake rotors


Yes correct.
DON'T UNDO THE HUB NUT !

You may have to tap the rotor with a hammer on the side a little while you are pulling it off.
And don't forget to release the handbrake when you are doing the rears emoticon

Re: Brake rotors


Yeah Mawzy, take the wheel off, undo the two bolts (14mm?) that hold the caliper on and tie that out of the way onto the strut.
Take the pads out, then use a 17mm to remove the caliper housing of the hub. If you have a rubber mallet give the rear of the disc a tap around the circumference of the disc, and it should slide off pretty easy.
Give the area a clean with Breakeclean and a brush, then reassemble the new disc. GIve the new disc a hit with Brakeclean as well, before you put it on.
Thats about it mate

Please feel free to document and take photos of the rotors replacement, so others can take benefit of your DIY Guide.

Re: Brake rotors


Ok sure. Another thing if anyone can help is the torque settings for the caliper bolts (main bolts that hold the caliper to the hub assembly) please.
