      Anyone know if just one driver side front rotor would be hard to replace myself or have it done professionally...and if so how much might all of this cost me?

      Any help is great thanks :D

      Edit* oh yeah i've been gone for the past 4 months because of air force basic training and tech. school :usa:

      For the good ones from a regular auto parts store, Id say about 60 to 80 bucks. I think I only paid about 120 for both.

      Yep, you got all the help you need right here. Just try searching on how to do it first. Its really simple and when you get done you will be glad you didnt pay to have it done.

      Do you have a haynes manuel? They have good write ups on it. Also this site should have tons of information.

      Welcome to the site. :) Front brakes aren't all that hard. Rotors are supposed to be replaced in sets. Like the others have suggested a manual is invaluable for somehting like this. Jim is right, this doesn't belong in the 911 forum. This is for emergencies only, and not when you need an answer fast.

      A rotor with bearing races in it goes for about $60. I am doing a brake job thread, and as of today have the disassembly on a first gen Ex all there, with pictures. Tonight I will try and post the rest of the pictures and text to put it back together. The thread should serve as a stand alone guide for this project.

      ok I got it done
      But yeah, sorry but it seemed like an emergency to me considering it was so bad my calipers were roasted and I could barely stop...i'd say not being able to stop could constitute a real emergency

      If you can't safely stop then you don't drive it. From the sticky at the top of the 911 forum marked "please read before posting in here"
      This forum IS NOT for times when you are in the middle of a mod/repair and want some help with it. Not for when your truck won't start and you really want to go over to your girlfriend's house. Not for when you really want to know what tires to order. Not for when a headlight goes out. Not for when you are looking to purchase an Explorer and want to know what to look for in it, or how to fix known problems with it.
