SOURCE: Brake Rotor Replacement Ford Escort 1997

The rotor is not held on by the big nut, it slides on and off, only the wheel holds it on, the clearance between the rotor and the front hub which the large nut holds on is very small, rust forms and the rotor gets stuck, use a hammer or a large piece of wood if you plan to reuse the rotor and hit it from side to side, spray penetrating oil to loosen the rust, it is a bugger but it will come loose, then make sure to wire brush all the rust off or wheel retention may be compromised.

SOURCE: 95 Suburban K2500 front brake rotor replacement

On the heavy-duty models like this one (and mine) the rotors are indeed pressed on. The whole assembly comes off via four bolts on the inside of the assembly. Look in a Chilton's or Hayne's at your local auto parts store to see it with pictures.

Do not just hammer away as the previous ignoramus suggested. They'll never come off and you'll just end up breaking something.

SOURCE: How to remove front rotors from a 1998 K3500 Silverado?

You have a 3 or 4 15mm bolts in the back of the hub. They are torqued very high and extremely difficult to remove. They are also easily rounded off. You need a snap on 1/2" drive inpact wobble 15mm socket and leave steering wheel unlocked so you can rotate wheel to get 2 of them at a time.

Removing the front rotors on my k3500 chevy truck


if you took the tire, brake caliper and everything off and you are replacing the rotors then spray some wd-40 or pb blaster around the lug nut bolts and the center and let it set and work into it. if you cant wiggle it off then take a regular hammer and smack the back of the rotor. sometimes the rust and brake dust will build up and cause it to stick.

How do you change the front passenger side wheel bearing on a 1997 Chevy Blazer 4 wheel drive? Need detailed instructions.


Once the truck is on jack stands remove the brake caliper and rotor. The hub assembly should slide right off at that point. The wheel bearings are actually sealed in the hub assembly which is kind of nice because then you don't have to deal with grease packing the bearings. Just slide the new hub assembly back on. Put the rotor and caliper back together and you should be good to go. Hope this helps you.

How do you remove front brake rotor on k 3500 4x4 1993


pull tire, remove outer hub (automatic or locking?) usually eight hex screws, behind hub assembly is a "wheel bearing nut" about 2" in diameter, this is just a circle with threads on the inside of it and four notches around the outside of it, the only way to get this out is to get the right "wheel bearing nut socket" from an automotive store, just FYI, it is probably going to be a special order tool. after "wheel bearing nut" is off the rotor will come off along with the wheel bearings, while you are in there these should probably be replaced also
