Replacing Rotor On 97 Ls400

Recommended Posts

Trying to replace the rotor and pads on my 97 LS400. Found out that the bolt holding the caliper is a torx type which I do not have the tool. Anybody know what the torx size is since I'll have to buy it to do this job. Also looks like I'll have to remove the brake line to the caliper to get access to this bolt. Has anyone done this (replace rotor/pads) on the 97 LS400 and can tell me if there are any other gochas or tips before I tackle this. It looks very different than the 90-94 LS400 described in the lexls tutorials. Thanks.

I replace the pads on my '97 when they need it. I don't have the procedure fresh in my mind, but really don't remember having to disconnect any lines to replace the pads.

Replacing the pads looks fairly straightforward (caliper does not need to be messed with). However, getting the caliper out and to remove the rotor look more complicated.
