Rotor's need replaced

I have a 1997 f250 xlt and i need new rotors. i tryed just pulling them off after getting the brakes out of the waybut nothing happend then i took the axel nut off and still nothing. i beat on it with a hammer and it wouldn't budge i actually had to take the three bolts out from behind it and took tha barring and all. is this all one piece or should the the two actually seperate? the rotors look like they have never been off the truck. i have never had this problem with any other vehicles. could it be the rotor and barring are just so old that they are gulded together?
thanks, chuck

No there not made together it should come apart sometimes you have to beat the blank out of the to get them apart. The only way they would be a unit is if your truck is from the 70's which it isn't.

I am replacing disc brakes on a 2006 E-150 Ford Van I can't get the caliber off the rotor I removed the 2 bolts and can't not pull it off. I tried tapping with mallet. Am I missing any other bolts?

The pads are hung on the outer ridge on the rotors,
because you don't take them apart once a year and
knock down the ridge,clean off all rust,inspect and
lube things

Use a wide screw driver or small pry bar between
the old pad and rotor to compress the piston

It may surprise you to know that using an impact to install the wheels can cause uneven tightening and thus resulting in later warping of the rotor as it heats up and cools down depending on construction of the rotor.

I would have the rotors checked for run out again. Or have someone with a brake lathe chock the rotor up and verify this warpage.

F250,super crew cab, super duty diesel; Brakes shimmy real bad, third time this has been problem. Dealer has said they turned rotors. I don't believe it. 37,000 miles, no towing, driven very nicely. Do...

In my oppinion Factory pads are far better than most aftermarket pads. You can rule out the rotors by taking them down to a mechanic that has a lave. once they start turning the rotors they will be able to tell if the rotors are warped. If your rotor thickness is under the factory minimum they could have become warped over time, which would explain why the problem got worse over time. In that case you need to purchase new rotors and have them machined. Just make sure you replace the old pads with new ones.

Brakes f250 2 wheel drive

hello i think you should have the system power bleed with a power bleeder theres a good chance the plunger in the proportioning valve is sticking if you have this truck power bleed it will push out the old fluid replacing with new usually if theres any type of contaminates especially oil ,or power stewering put into master by mistake it would swell any rubber piece to the point of a hard pedal and nothing working then you would have to replace everthing like your being told the only thing you could still use would be the lines wich would have to be cleaned with denature alcahol i would have it bleed in sequence firthest tire down to the closest to the master goodluck

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.
