Question about 1997 Ford Escort
Will you please help tell me how I can remove the front rotors from my 1997 Ford Escort ?
I expected that after I removed the big nut on the axle that I could pull the rotors off, but they are quite stuck.
The rotor is not held on by the big nut, it slides on and off, only the wheel holds it on, the clearance between the rotor and the front hub which the large nut holds on is very small, rust forms and the rotor gets stuck, use a hammer or a large piece of wood if you plan to reuse the rotor and hit it from side to side, spray penetrating oil to loosen the rust, it is a bugger but it will come loose, then make sure to wire brush all the rust off or wheel retention may be compromised.
