Raise and support vehicle. Remove wheel. Remove front brake caliper and pads. See FRONT BRAKE PADS under REMOVAL & INSTALLATION. Remove torque plate bolts. Check rotor thickness and runout. See DISC BRAKE SPECIFICATIONS. Match mark rotor-to-hub for installation reference. Remove 2 screws and rotor.
Installation
Place rotor on front hub and tighten 2 screws. Align rotor-to-hub match marks. Install torque plate and tighten bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. Remove some brake fluid from brake reservoir. Compress piston in caliper bore. Install caliper over brake pad assembly (onto slide pins). Hold sliding pin and tighten bolts. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.
