This guide will show you how to remove and replace the front brake rotors on the '86-'93 Volvo 240.

Whenever working on brakes, it is a good idea to keep one side assembled to use as a reference. Never drive a car that has only had its brakes on one side changed, as this will cause the car to pull to one side when braking.

  1. Jack up the front of the car and place it on jack stands.
    • Jack up the front of the car and place it on jack stands.

      • Never work on or underneath a car that is only supported by a jack. The jack may slip or fail, resulting in serious injury or even death.

    • Use an impact wrench or lug wrench to remove the five 19 mm lug nuts from the front wheel.

      • The wheel lug nuts should be torqued to 85 ft-lbs when the wheels are put back on the car.

    • Pull the front wheel off the wheel lugs and set it aside.

    • Place the new brake rotor over the wheel lugs.
