    Do I need to remove the front wheel drive lock mechanismss before I can remove the rotors? If so, how do i do it?
    I tried removing one of them and wound up screwing up the position of the spring inside. if anyone can let me know how to put the spring back correctly that would be great.
    Thanks.

    No idea if a 95 is the same process of an 04, but this is a good video

    (a part two also)

    thanks for that.
    either the 04 doesn't have these locks that you need to turn in order to lock or unlock the front wheel-drive on a 95, or they skip over that in the video, but i'm looking to find out what i need to do with the locks before i can take off the rotor.

    He means the front locker hubs.
    You do have to remove them I think,don't forget to clean and grease em up while your doing your brakes. Had my uncle do my front brakes while I was working.
