Sometimes they just get stuck, which a big soft blunt hammer will cure with a good hit , or maybe you missed these assembly line screws ? there may be 2 of them on each rotor .

if there just stuck , try some penetrating oil / spray , and spray around the inside circle where the rotor meets the hub , let it penetrate ,give it a good smack with a hammer and a piece of wood so you don't damage the rotor .

I have the calipers off and am trying to replace teh rotor in a town and country but they are really stuck on there. What can I do? I have hit them with a rubber mallet already, but they are not budging....

No pins. Soak it with wd40 around the center and around the studs for about 10 minutes. Then hit the rotor with a metal headed hammer. Hit it hard, but be accurate, don't hit the studs.

Rear rotor on a 2007 chrysler town and country won't budge.

Sounds like you have that old "rust" problem. Rust and calcium build up around the hub and behind the rotor. Wire brush as much as you can around the hub. Using a medium hammer tap the rotor near the hub between the studs. Take care not to hit the studs because this will damage the threads. Sometimes applying some heat with a small butane torch will help free the rotor. Do not heat severely, this will cause warpage. Take your time and you will be successfull. Good luck Moe

2003 hyundai elantra gls front wheel stud broke

grab a large punch and hammer and knock out the old broken one. Push the new one in and re tighten. This will pull it into place and because it has splines it should not spin while doing so.

How do you get rotor off 2003 hyundia elantra

hi from uk not sure if same as uk hyundai's but here goes ? if you remove wheel do you see two countersunk posi screws between studs that appear to hold rotor ?? if so then you will have to first remove the brake caliper assy by unbolting from the rear of caliper two 13 mm spanner/socket ? then you remove the two bolts that secure the carrier that the caliper bolts to 17 mm spanner/socket now you can remove the two contersunk screws then you may have to tap the rotor off the hub from rearuse a wire brush to clean up/away all rust/dust from caliper and carrier assys b4 refitting (take precautions from breathing dust) i assume you are fitting new pads ?? reassemble carrier then b4 fitting pads smear a light coating of copper grease on the rear of pad (metal side ) this prevents squealing on brakes then fully reassemble then b4 fitting wheel? bleed the brakee caliper a couple of pumps should expel dirty fluid then fit wheel carry out same proceedure on other brake assy as above fully then b4 you move car pump brake to ensure pedal is firm you will find that bleeding brakes will make pedal firmer as the old fluid becomes compressable due to heat/moisture absorbsion over time and heat from brakes is transferred to fluid via caliper piston understand?? that is why alway policy to bleed/flush brake fluid at least two yr interval this reduces spongy brake pedal hope this is all clear 4 you to follow best wishes for new year and hope you update on how you go on??

you should be able to get replacement parts at Napa or Oreillys they a fairly in expensive. but only if the are the drive in kind, meaning you need to take a hammer to knock them out of the rotor assembly then you just take a drift pin/punch and hammer them back in. hope this is helpful. please rate this solution. thanks
