I have done pad changes before no issues, but she is due for rotors as well this time... goodbye rust!

 

The only problem I am going to run into is the EPB inside the rear rotors. I know Colin has done one or more of these but CT has been quite busy lately, and they're going to help with experimenting on front differential bearing swaps. Colin by the way if you're reading this how did you manage it the last time? I forgot. 

 

Is anyone around that has done these in driveway? How easy or impossible is the EPB adjustment? 

 

I have Bodsy's brake bible already. Looks rough. 

 

Going to try Akebonos and OEM rotors. 

 

Thanks for reading.

 

EDIT: doing spark plugs too, do the NGK OEM ones come gapped correctly? Do not have a tool here.

Ngk should be gapped - the fine platium tips should not be gapped with the old style tool anyway - easy to damage the tips. I used the champion plugs from atlantic british on mine ... No problems. Rear plug on driver side is a bit of a tight fit (remove the heat shield - it levers up with screw driver around mounting points)- do that one last - when you have some experience with the easier ones ...

Thanks. Did you get the NGK (G-part number) plugs? This is what I have queued up for the next order.

Install new rotor. Adjust shoe until it locks the rotor
Back off 10 clicks
Rotate rotate and find the (I believe 4mm) hex bolt
Loosen 1/4 turn
Smack the drum surround part of rotor with a soft rubber mallet
Tighten hex bolt.
Re-install adjustment cap

Good to know.  I don't need rotors but I may need to adjust my parking brake as it made a really unpleasant screeching noise the last time I (well, Michele) used it and didn't want to release until we pulled the battery.  I've been avoiding it ever since.

Spark plugs come gaped already. I have the extra long socket you need to remove the plugs, you're welcome to borrow it if you want.

 

Ive done front rotors (easy) but not the rears. Good luck!

Where do you buy pre-gapped plugs? I've always had to gap mine, and I'm pretty religiously NGK plugs. At the minimum, I would want to verify that they are properly gapped and didn't get damaged/misadjusted during transport.

I get my plugs at Monument parts in livermore. I always check the gap and they are consistently right. I forget the exact measure

Enrique, consider me uninformed, what tool do you use to check the gap? Grabbed plugs from Cole European last night. 

 

Pads ordered, Akebono EUR1099, EUR1098

Rotors ordered, OEM from Rovers North (with spacers, locater screws etc.)

 

Did anyone have a problem getting the spark plugs or coil packs out, ripped boots, corroded threads?

 

Grabbing mexxis for dinner tonight! I'll leave work sometime after 5pm

It's called a gap gauge. You can also use feeler gauges if you already have some. 

 

This is the most common type:

Just be careful you don't damage the platinum tip ...   from NGK themselves...

 

https://www.ngkspark...ew-set-of-plugs

 

I used Magnetic plug socket from Kragen - makes it much easier to get the things in/out of the holes - and you will need a 6" and shorter extension and possibly a swivel bit (between the two) in some places if I remember right ...

the NGK ones I picked up from the dealer are marked IR, I am assuming iridium. No issues from damage with a gapping tool?

 

And Enrique was kind enough to loan me his socket, so I've got the tools part covered now! Thanks again Enrique!

 

Hunting for a swivel today, and two 3" extensions
