Replace Brake Rotors

Recommended Posts

  • Admin

It's pretty straightforward.

For the fronts:

Just remove the two caliper bolts and carefully hang the caliper out of the way. Then remove the two phillips screws that hold the rotor in place.


Put the new rotor on (making sure that you have the Left on the Left and the Right on the Right). Fasten the screws on the new rotor. Carefully slide the caliper back on the rotor (you may have to press the pads in a little to make it easier to slide on). Put the bolts in the caliper and torque them to 63 ft/lbs. (85 Nm). Porsche recommends that you use new bolts.

For the rears:

Important - Release the parking brake fully.

The process is the same but you may need to back-off the parking brake drums with a screw driver. Then after you are done adjust the parking brake through the threaded wheel bolt hole until the wheel can no longer be turned. Then, turn back the adjustment 5 notches again (release approx. 3 notches until the wheel can be turned freely, then release another 2 notches).
