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.

Dont take the nut loose,the rotor should come off. If not it may be rusted to the hub. You may need to pry it off, I would not pound on it with a hammer unless you are going to replace the rotor anyhow.

Front rotor replacement


HI you will need to remove the caliper, then what is called the caliper bridge this will be held on to the steering knuckle with two bolts. with this removes you have to remove the philips head screw that hold the rotor to the hub then the rotor will come off the hub.

Remove rear rotors


There is likely a rust ridge on the parking drum area of the rotor. There should be a round black rubber plug on the rotor, Pop it out,and loosen the parking brake adjuster screw. the rotor should then come off.try turning the rotor as you remove it-it may help.

How do I replace front rotors on a '03 Mazda mpv


MOST DO IT YOURSELF BOOKS EXPLAIN THE BRAKE PAD REMOVAL. WHEN THE CALIPER IS OFF THE ROTOR IS HELD ON BY TWO PHILLIPS SCREWS TO KEEP THINGS "TOGETHER" ON THE HUB. IT MAY ALSO BE TIGHT TO THE HUB, BUT IT WILL COME OFF.
ALWAYS REPLACE WITH NEW ROTORS SINCE MOST OF THE WORK IS DONE BY THE FRONT (DISK) BRAKES. SHOPS LIKE TO "TURN" OR RESURFACE ROTORS BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE MACHINE PAID FOR AND CAN CHARGE YOU THE PRICE OF NEW ROTORS AT A PARTS STORE FOR A LITTLE LABOR.

How do you replace front rotors for 1997 Isuzu Trooper


you will have to pull the calipers and everything off in order to get to them. remove center cap on rotor and remove center nut, pull out bearings. rotor bolts onto hub possibly with 14mm bolts and nuts take these loose and rotor should seperate from hub.

Brake rotor


That 1&1/4 nut holds the axle shaft to the hub. It does not have to be removed to pull the brake rotor. If there are no screws holding the rotor to the hub, it is probably stuck. Tap the area on the rotor between the lug studs with a hammer. This should get the rotor loose.
