Hi,

The vibration you feel is likely due to warped rotors. It can happen when they overheat. As far as replacing the front brake pads and rotors, it really isn't too hard. Also, you are right at the average mileage, 25,000 miles, for them to need to be replaced. The good thing about doing it yourself is you can get lifetime parts at a parts store. That way, you won't have to pay for parts again while you own the vehicle.

Let's get started. First, here is a link that explains in general how it is done. You can use this to help guide you through the process:

Here are the directions specific to your vehicle. The pics below correlate with the directions.

Brake Rotor Replacement

Once you have the brake caliper removed, you will need to also remove the caliper mounting bracket. There will be two bolts holding it in place located on the rear of the steering knuckle. Remove the bolts, remove the mount, and then the rotor can be removed. Install is opposite of removal.

Hi,

Replacing front brake pads and rotors really isn't too hard. You can expect to get around 25,000 miles from a set of pads, but that is based on driving habits and terrain. Changing them yourself can save you a lot. If you get lifetime parts from a parts store and do it yourself, you shouldn't have to pay for brake pad replacement again.

This sounds like one of the calipers locked up. I would lift the vehicle and then try and spin the front tires to see which one is locked up. Then remove the wheel and make sure the brake line is not twisted. That would be the most likely cause of this as sometimes when we reinstall this the caliper get twisted and then rubber line then holds the fluid in the caliper and doesn't allow it to release. Here is a guide that will help with this:

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-replace-front-brake-pads-and-rotors-fwd

Also, This could be a caliper slide pin that is seized. When doing the brakes, we need to lubricate these and make sure they move freely. if not they can lock up.

I attached the process from the manual for the entire process. Let us know what you find with this. Thanks

Hi,

Brakes are a wear item. From use, they go bad. They are not too hard to replace. Take a look through this link. It explains in general how brake pads and rotors are replaced.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-replace-front-brake-pads-and-rotors-fwd

Here are directions specific to your vehicle for replacement. The directions also explain how to check things such as the rotors to make sure they are good as well as if the calipers need rebuilt. The attached pics correlate with the directions.

My brakes seem to be wearing more on the drivers side. I need to change the brake pads but I may need to replace the front drivers caliper.I know somewhat how to do it but it has been a while.

Hi there,

Remove caliper as per pic & text, the only extra thing to do is get a brake hose clamp and close off the brake hose when you undo the hose banjo bolt at the caliper, don't loose the 2 copper washers on the bolt one on the top and the bottom.

Here is a video of the job being done only with drums but it follows the same principle.
