Hi, we can help you with this information.

First some tools required to perform this repair (hydraulic Jack and at least two stands, a 7mm Drive Metric Hex socket, a straight screwdriver, a 17mm and 19mm combination wrenches, I do not know on yours if rotor screws are torx or allen or Phillips screwdriver. You have to look at it).
Jack front of vehicle and secure with stands for safety, remove tires if you start with the left side first, turn wheel to the left and remove caliper caps with screwdriver save do not lose.
Remove spring with screw driver (check out the diagrams below).
Use the 7 mm drive hex socket to remove caliper bolts, (remember caliper slides in and out on these bolts)
remove caliper set aside (a good idea to hang it), remove brake pads (remember to look at the pads if there worn the same inner and outer)if not worn the same brake issue is present.
If you going to replace the rotors you will have to remove the brake pad holder with the 17mm combination wrench (possible 19mm) you will have to clean with a wire brush before installing.
Replacing rotors, there are two torx screws on the rotor (possible allen or Philips)
clean all surfaces including axle shaft where rotor seats
now reverse procedure to install.
Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

I am glad to help you, If there is anything else we can help you with please contact us again. Thank you for choosing 2CarPros.

Cheers, Nick
