SOURCE: how do I change the rotors on a 2003 buick rendezvous?

You will find two bolts on the back side of the caliper that go into two small rubber boots. Likely the bolt heads on yours are torks head and need appropriate socket to remove. You need to retract pads in order to easily remove caliper from rotor. Retract further with a large "c" clamp before re-installing pads. Lube slides that attachment bolts go through (I use white grease for this) before re-installing them. Be careful to not cross thread bolts when putting them back in.
Good luck, and don't forget to rate this answer!!!

How does one remove the rear caliper holder so the rotor can be removed. It appears to be held on by two bolts but they do not budge.


the two inside bolts will come off, may need a breaker bar as they are snug, they are on the inside top and bottom of the brake caliper. once the caliper is removed support it with a clothes hanger as not to damage the brake lines. Good Luck Tim

Make sure the emergency brake isn't on, the 2 bolts that hold the caliper itself are long with only threads near the top, the other 2 bolts hold the thing on the hub to stop the caliper from going around with the brakes. You should only be taking off the caliper bolts, the caliper slides back and forth on these when you hit the brakes. Pull the bolts and the caliper and pads should pop right out, with the squealers and shims. Hope this helps.

Removing chevy venture caliper


Yes it's the right direction but because of so much heating and cooling those bolts get really tight.Spray alot of penetrating oil (WD-40) on and around the bolts.You may even want to tap the wrench on the bolts in the opposite direction slightly (tighten) to help loosen their adherence,then try the right way to losen them.Dont use a torch! It'll melt the "O" ring on the caliper piston.Take your time

How do you get the top bolts out of the front calipers on a 2000 Kia sportage 4 WD. they are rusted in and won't budge with an impact wrench. I was told not to heat them.


You could try product called PB blaster spray. you can buy it at an auto parts store. Wack the bolts a couple of times then spray it on and let it sit for about an hour then try to loosen them again.

Changing brakes


well, if you snapped one of the caliper bolts you still may be able to proceed, try sticking a screw driver through one of holes on the caliper above the pads and rotor and try to press outward so you compress the caliper piston, if you can compress it far enough you may be able to slide the caliper enough to get it past the broken bolt and remove it. for future reference you only need to remove 1 bolt to remove the caliper, the other bolt will pull the slider out.

once you have the caliper removed you should be able to just replace the slider and get a new bolt.

2006 toyota corolla - rotors


The large bolt that you see is the nut that holds the axle shaft to the hub. You do not need to remove it to remove the rotors. You just need to remove the caliper & the caliper bracket. Normally, the rotors come off of the hubs easily, but sometimes, they rust onto the hub. My techs beat and beat and beat until they come off. With large hammers. Note that after they are beaten off, the rotors are no longer viable for re-use.
