Howdy guys,
my right front brake rotor has warped, I need to replace and I am looking to do it myself. While I'm waiting for my manual I was wondering if lwebb12 or anyone else had some schematics for this? Just so I can get an idea of whats involved.

1984 520i, can post vin digits if needed.
thanks in advance

just thought it was worth mentioning that you need to replace both front rotors, not just the one that is warped

should always change them in pairs :thumbs
