Brake repair

After getting the quote from my dealer for front pad replacement on my 2000 Pontiac Montana I would like to do this myself. I just wanted to know if there are any special tools required. And do the rotors come off once the calipers are removed or does the hub have to be dismantled.

I do have some tools from such as c clamps, torx wrenches and allen wrenches and have worked on brakes in the past (much older cars with no anti lock brakes). If any one can advise on this I would be grateful.

Thanks in Advance,

You should pick up a repair manual to guide you through the repair and give you a visual illustration of what you are working on.

Most times a good set of metric tools is what's needed, nothing more.

Usually, you just remove the wheel, the caliper and then the rotor will slide off. It should be easy at this point. Reverse this to install.
