I've checked the FAQ area and haven't find anything on changing rotors, only brakes pads. Anyone care to send me a link or maybe I have just overlooked it in the FAQ section?
Thanks

Awesome, hope to hear from you soon. You know, changing rotors should be on the FAQ site too.

I am too lazy to write my own faq. Even though I have proper pics. But any questions, give me a PM, will be happy to answer them.


Here are the links :

http://www.ee.udel.edu/~xuan/auto/DIY-brake-job.html



Here are couple of other goodlinks.

PS: no need to really syphon the fluid. I didn't and it was fine. Also, as far as the bolts go to take off rotors, for fronts I used 15mm, but on the passenger rear, I had to use 16mm. very weird and driver rear 17mm. UBER weird.

If the lugs which hold the rotors don't come off easy, there are other ways. Like a cheater bar, impact ranch, or there is also another cheating method. You can use a stilt and counter weight the cars weight on the socket using the jack slowly. Works like a charm


PSS: Also, sorry for the delay. I was too busy playing with my VALENTINE1. I received it yesterday.
