REPLACING FRONT BRAKE ROTORS

1997 Ford Escort

Brakes problem
1997 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

are the front brake rotors separate from the front hub assembly? In other words, can the rotors be replaced without having to disturb the front hubs? Or are the rotors & hubs a single assembly where replacing the front rotors would mean replacing the whole rotor & hub assembly? Thank you for your time & consideration. Jim Honer

FRONT BRAKE ROTOR
Removal & Installation
Remove front wheels. Remove front brake caliper and pads. See FRONT BRAKE CALIPER & PADS. If caliper does not require service, DO NOT disconnect brake hose from caliper.
Using mechanic's wire, secure caliper out of way. Remove rotor from hub assembly. To install rotor, reverse removal procedure. Bleed brakes (if necessary). See BLEEDING BRAKE SYSTEM.
