CHANGING BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS !!!! The BEST and most precise directions
Hi everyone!!! I am new here. I have a 2001 bmw 740i...its the sport M edition. I an hearing some noise from the front right wheels...especially at low speeds and braking too. I can feel that the outter edge of the rotors stick out a little more than the rest of the surface.
Can anyone tell me how can I check and know that I need to change the rotors.?????? PLEASE!!!
And the pads do look pretty thin compared to the rear ones. So I think I do need to change the pads.
Can anyone tell me where to find the best and most precise instructions/illustruations on how to perform the job of replacing the front rotors and brake pads on this car.
