400E Brakes

I have 2 400e's and one is wrecked so i was wanting to know if i could take the front rotors and calipers off of the wrecked one and put them on the back of the one im driving now. im sure this is possible but how hard would it be to do? thanks, parker vess

The rotors are quite easy to replace on your car. If you've done brake rotors on any other vehicle it should be a piece of cake. Nothing special about the process.

I'm acting under the assumptions that these are the same barking systems. Everything should bolt up nice and easy. Pay close attention to the condition of the brake lines and fittings. Might be a good time to replace those as well. Bleed the brakes starting furthest from the master cylinder andmoving closer. I would recommend getting your hands on a power bleeder or the process will take forever. Good luck with the project.
