If you dont have room to knock them out to replace them then you will more than likely have to remove the hub assembly to replace them.

SOURCE: Removing the front brake rotor on a 1998 Mazda Protege

You do not have to remove the big center nut. You might have to tap on it with a hammer to get it off. If there is anything solid near it to pry against (don't pry against the dust shield) try that too. If none of this helps you can try heating it near the center. You should be able to get it off without heating it but it is possible that that is what you will have to do.

SOURCE: Broken Lug Studs

You have to remove the hub to remove the bolts, if they won't come out by rotating the hub.

To remove the hub, take the cap off at the center of the hub (the cap would be poking you a the center of the hub, and is about 2 inches in diameter.

There should be a cotter key or something preventing the spindle nut from turning. Remove it. If there is a cover over the spindle nut, remove it. Take the spindle nut off. Pull lightly on the hub, and it will come off. Watch for the front bearing to pop out.

To reassemble, put hub back on spindle, put bearing and washer against bearing, thread on spindle nut and tighten while rotating hub. Back off 1/2 to 1 flat add cover (if used) and install cotter key.

Need help to change front wheel stud on 1999 honda civic EX


1. first take the wheel off so you can see the the caliper and the rotor. make sure the car is on stands and not just waving around on a jack.
2. look behind the caliper and use your finger to locate, a pair of bolts behind the caliper... they will be holding the caliper into place on the suface of the rotor, by a simple look and feel you can see these, they should take a 17mm socket undo them and remove the bolts. at this stage you should see the the caliper become loose.
3. remove the caliper by pulling it up and away from the rotor
4. now you can see the rotor remove this it will simply slide away.
5. this will leave the hub exposed and the studs.. you will see that they are wedged into the hub
6. remove the stud/s by hitting them / it with a hammer be carful to not damage the other studs if you just replacing one.
7. there is one spot where the will be a gap and you will be able to get the stud in behind the hub and have a little bit of room, rotate the hub to there, make sure the car is out of gear or this will be very difficult :)
8 once the stud is in take something you can use as a spacer like a larger then the stud nut. for example and then put one of the wheel nuts on and tighten slightly
9. use a hammer and drive the back of the stud home, and slowly tighten the wheel nut as you go.
10. once this is done your finished put all the bits back togeather in the oppersite order and replace the wheel.

How to replace front rotor on 2005 pontiac vibe?I have removed caliper and caliper bracket do I need to remove axle nut and if so how?


once the caliper and bracket are removed, the rotors should just come off. These are hat style rotors and just slip over the hub. They do have a tendency to rust on, sometimes hitting them with a hammer between the studs will break them loose. some rotors have threaded holes between teh wheel studs that you can screw a bolt into to break them free.

How to replace a front brake rotor on a 1999 pontiac bonneville


Check this procedure about REMOVAL & INSTALLATION (see Figure 1)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove 2 / 3 of the brake fluid from the brake reservoir using a clean syringe or equivalent.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  4. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and bearing assembly.
  5. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  6. Remove the caliper and suspend it from the strut with a wire hook or suitable piece of wire. Do NOT disconnect the brake hose or allow the caliper to hang from the brake line!
If the original rotor is still on the vehicle, it may be retained with star washers, so you must remove and discard these retaining washers.
  1. Remove the rotor assembly by sliding it off the hub. If it is stuck on, use penetrating oil and tap lightly until free.
33e5842.jpg

Fig. 1: The rotor can be removed by sliding it straight off the lug studs

To install:

  1. Install the brake rotor over the hub assembly.
  2. Install the brake caliper as outlined in this section.
  3. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Carefully lower the vehicle. Tighten the wheel lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm). If the lug nuts aren't tightened properly, the rotor will warp from heat, causing premature wear and noise.
  5. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the FULL level with the correct type of DOT 3 brake fluid from a clean, unsealed container.
  6. Firmly depress the brake pedal three times before moving the vehicle.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

How do you remove the front brake rotor on a 2005 Pontiac Vibe?


To remove the brake rotor, you must first remove the brake pads and caliper. There are two bolts that hold the brake caliper in place. Remove the two bolts and tie the caliper up out of the way. Be careful not to break the brake line connected to the back of caliper. Once the caliper is removed, simply slide the rotor off. To install a new rotor, simply slide rotor over studs and replace the caliper with new brake pads. It is as simple as that.

How to change front brake rotor on 2000 ford taurus wagon cause front wheel shake when brake apply


Remove both caliper mounting bolts should be 12 or 13 mm bolts. Next remove both caliper mounting bracket bolts 15mm. Rotor should then pull off. If not use large hammer and hit the face off the rotor hub between the wheel studs until it comes loose. Make sure the face of the wheel hub is free of rust between the wheel studs and use high temp anti seize around the center circle of the wheel studs.

Broken wheel stud


1. get new studs and nuts
2.remove wheel
3. remove caliper at bracket to spindle connection(2 18mm bolts?)you may need to remove caliper from bracket,but not always nessacery. Or remove drum,then to #5
4.remove rotor,will need a hammer, tap inbetween studs dont wreck good studs and see if new studs can be installed without removing parking brake shoes. If there is no clearance to get new stud in you will need to remove shoes.
5.Pound out old studs place new stud in hole use a washer on outside then put a nut on and tighten to install stud, A air gun or some type of impact tool will be very helpful. Check to see that stud has enough threds to pull stud all the way thru ,add more washers if nessecary dont let the nut run out of threds it will **** to get back off and wreck new stud.
6. if you dont have air gun or feel comfertable removing brakes bring it to a reputable garage, shouldnt cost more than $70+ parts to get all new studs put in on one wheel.
