Re: saturn vue rotor removal
That is an axle nut. It only hold s the axle into the hub assembly. 130 ft/lbs. Remove the caliper. 2 15mm bolts remove the caliper. The rotor should be loose. If there are star clips on 1 or 2 lug studs, cut them off and discard. These are for initial production only.

Are you saying that you are trying to replace the lug stud? The studs are pressed into the spindle that the rotor is mounted to. It is possible to pull the stud thru the spindle by tightening the lug nut, but this is not the proper way to do it. The proper way would be to remove the rotor and the spindle from the vehicle and press the lug stud into the spindle with a press. But I have pulled studs into the spindle when I was broken down on the side of the road with 5 broken studs. You just have to make sure you tighten the nuts until they do not tighten anymore, and check the nuts every day until they do not tighten anymore.
Regularly change oil, plugs, wires, fuel filter, flush cooling system, and keep an eye on things like tire wear, brakes, ****** fluid, brake fluid, etc. Basic maintenance can keep you from big problems, but as with any vehicle, they arent indestructible and things will just eventually go bad. Then the fun begins :)
The Saturn Vue should have a bolt-on bearing with integrated wheel hub and ABS. It is held on with 3 bolts.
I assume that you got the wheel, rotor, and brake caliper off. You've removed the 3 bolts thru the knuckle to the bearing. And you have the axle nut off and the axle pushed out or at least lose from the bearing spline.
The bearing can get stuck in the aluminum knuckle pilot diameter. The galvanic corrosion between the bearing and knuckle can lock the bearing into the knuckle pretty tightly. It is not a press fit, it's just stuck. I had one GM bearing that had to be pushed out with a hydraulic press.
Keep soaking with penetrating oil and keep hitting it. Otherwise you'll need to remove the knuckle/bearing from the car and find a press.
2008 Saturn Vue rear wiper blade: Pop off the cover over the bolt that comes out of the rear window. Unscrew the nut. Now you can remove the assembly. Give the old wiper a tug and pull it out. Snap in a new 11-inch wiper. Replace the assembly, bolt and cover.
Remove the front wheel, use a flat head to take of the dust cap in the center of the rotor. There will be a big nut with a cotter pin going through it. Remove the pin and the take the nut off. After removing the caliper you will be able to remove the rotor and the bearings inside.
If it is a 2.2 Auto it has a VT25E Trans,A really bad experiment from G.M.There is no dipstick.The only way to check it per service is to remove the center part of the main drain plug while running in park,if fluid drains or trickles out they say it's full.You probally have other Issues inside the trans.Check your mileage they have a special coverage period for this Trans through Saturn Dealer!! They May cover it or do a partial coverage for you.Hope this helps
there should be a center cap you have to remove and inside there you tillfind s nut with a kotter pin thruough it you have to that loose in order to get the rotors off.to get the caps off youll need to tap it side to dies with a hammer til it ocmes loose then u can get to the nut to remove the rotors
the first thing i will recomend you, is ti buy the new rotors first,
sisnce you did not mention if you allready have the new ones
and see if they are slide out type rotorss or one piece rotor assy
with the lugn nuts, sometimes they just slide out but sometimes you need to remove the center big nut in order to remove them.
The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.
