You have got a wheel speed sensor you have to unplug. Follow the wire up the fame toward the fire wall. It will be held on with clips in about four different spots. Pull the rubber flap up above the shock and unplug the sensor. There are four or five bolts on the back side of the rotors that have to come off. You have to do this on both sides. Note: rotors have to be turned on the truck but I found out that it was cheaper just to buy new ones for around $39-$40 each.

Right front wheel bearing is stripped and stuck on a nissan xterra 2003, how do I fix this problem?

You can replace the whole bearing....these cant be repaired unless you have special equipment to pull them apart, and repack them
I would change both sides because the other will go eventually.
I doubt you need to fix anything else!

How do you remove the rotors from a 1986 Dodge W150

Yes you have to remove the entire hub assembly. You will need a special socket to remove the nut that holds the bearings in place. Then, once everything is out of the hub all you have to do is pound the studs out and then the hub and rotor should come apart. If not carefully tap on the rotor to break it apart from the hub they often like to stick together. I recommend repacking your wheel bearings with fresh grease while you have the whole hub apart. Also when putting everything back together you will need to purchase new grease seals. These are available at Napa for a decent price.

How do i change the brakes and rotors on my 2004

When you say fit properly I assume you mean it's not going back together. Make sure you have the bearings and races installed correctly on the back side and that you are installing the correct rotor on the correct side with the correct bearings. The front and rear bearings look the same but they aren't and if you try putting that rotor on with the front side bearing installed in the rear of the rotor it will never go back together.

Front disc brake rotors on Toyota T100 4wd

Remove the calipers like on any other vehicle. You will have to remove the hubs as the rotors are attached to them. It's more involved that a standard passenger vehcle.

Accessing front driveshaft bearings on mitsi L200 4x4 1999

If you get the outer hub off, there is a big locknut and snap rings holding the rotor and bearings in. There is a nut on the back side of the rotor is why they are spinning.

Changing front brakes on 2004 mitsubishi endeavor

if you have floating rotors in the front then no.

But if you have locking hub units in the front then yes the bearing will have to come apart.

But if there is only one nut and you can see the threads through the wheel then no you have floating rotors, and sometimes are rusted to wheel bearing and are a pain to get off. Call the parts department and ask whether these are floating rotors or not. This will clarify everything
