    Jack up and support the vehicle, remove the wheel and brake caliper. remove the brake caliper mounting bracket. There is a grease cap that is removed, the cotter pin that goes through the castellated nut retaining the wheel bearing. with draw the wheel bearing and brake disc. Replace the brake disc, clean and repack the wheel bearing, re install the disc and hub asembly, properly adjust the taper wheel bearing (it is important to adjust this properly). Reinstall the brake pads and caliper assembly.
