What size tool/kind of tool do i need to remove the big center star nut on my 2007 toyota highlander front rotor

The rotors are knock off rotors. They are just rusted and stuck to the hub. DO NOT REMOVE THE AXLE NUT. this will not help you get the rotor off. Instead use a large hammer and hit the rotor from the back side. Several good whacks should break it free.

After removing the tire, there is a hub type assembaly that appears to be bolted onto the rotor, after plenty of PB oil and some TLC, i managed to break this assembaly free, so i thought i was home free,...


Raise and support the front end on jackstands.
  1. Remove the wheel.
  2. Remove the hub nut and washer. Insert a long drift or dowel through the vanes in the brake rotor to hold the rotor while loosening the nut.
  3. Using a puller, force the outer end of the axle shaft out of the hub. Remove the hub/rotor.
To install:
  1. Position the shaft in the hub and install the washer and hub nut. Leave the drift in the rotor vanes and tighten the hub nut to 173 ft. lbs. (235 Nm).
  2. Remove the drift.
  3. Install the wheel and lower the vehicle.

How do u remove the front brake rotors

The brake rotors on a Toyota Matrix are an extremely important aspect of the brake system. Over time, the rotors, which are the round disc that the caliper and brake pads clamp when the brakes are applied, can get scored, warped or simply wear too thin from use. Rotors should be regularly inspected for wear and replaced if necessary to ensure that your Matrix's brakes function properly and safely. Replacing rotors is a simple job that can be done in a few hours
  • Loosen the lug nuts that fasten the wheels on. Raise the Matrix with a jack and support it securely with jack stands. Remove the wheels.
  • 2 Clean the brake caliper, rotor and nearby areas with brake cleaner and a clean rag. Make sure there is no dirt, oil or contaminants on the brake components.
  • 3 Remove the bolts that hold the caliper to the caliper mounting bracket. There will be two bolts that can be removed with a socket and ratchet or an open-ended wrench.
  • 4 Slide the caliper off of the rotor. Support the caliper with a piece of wire or string so that the weight of it is not on the brake line, which could be damaged from the weight of the caliper.
  • 5 Remove the caliper mounting bracket by removing the two bolts with a ratchet or an open-ended wrench. Set the bracket aside.
  • 6 Pull the rotor straight off of the hub. On the Matrix, the rotors are not bolted on with anything, once the wheel and the caliper are out of the way. However, the rotor may be frozen onto the hub from years of dirt and rust. Use a rubber mallet to tap the rotor off.
  • 7 Replacement is the reverse of removal.

    I Can't get front rotors off my 2006 Toyota Camry.

    On most camries you need to remove the wheels, then brake pads, and the calipers. Most camries do not use any screws to hold the rotors, thus when you remove the calipers you should be able to remove rotors without problems.

    Trouble removing a 2005 Equinox front Rotor?

    if there are no screws visible on the hub of the rotor, its just seized from rust, get some pb blaster and lightly spray around the hub and the lug nut studs, then whack away with a hammer on the hub of the rotor, not the rotor itself unless you plan on replacing the rotor

    One rotor comes off the other is held on by the wheel hub

    well, i assume you don't have an air hammer do you? if so, hit the rotor between the wheel studs. I assume you have at least a hammer? Start hitting the rotor between the wheel hubs. First the top half then the other, making sure not to hit the rotor where the brake pads ride. Oh, don't forget to spray around the hub with wd40

    Brake rotor replacement on 2004 matrix

    If you are talking about the brake rotors, you do NOT remove the 30 mm nut. That nut just holds the axle shaft to the hub. Remove the caliper and the caliper bracket, the rotor should come off, you may have to tap the brake rotor to dislodge it from the center hub.
