Spray some penatrating oil around the center where the rotor slides on the hub assembly, let it set for a few min then hit the rotor from the back, and rotate it while you hit it!!!!

If the calipers are off the rotors should be cleared for take off. haha a little airplane humor. I have had issues like this because of brake dust and rust. Sometime it takes several rotations of the rotor where your hitting it to keep loosening the ****.

How to remove rotor on rear of 2005 dodge 3500? Do I need special equipment?


If you truck has a standard rear axle just remove the caliper and caliper adapter bracket, then the rotor will pull off. Sometimes if the hub face is rusted it may take a little persuasion to come off. You can hit it with a ball peen hammer between the wheel studs, this is usually enough to free it. If you have a dually you will need to remove the axle shafts first by removing the bolts around the outside of the axle housing then pull the shafts outward. Then remove the caliper and caliper adapter. Slide rotor and hub assembly off of axle, then unbolt the the hub from the rotor.

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 get front rotors off and r they nock offs or do i have to take a nut off? 2000 chevy silverado 2wd


mcdevito75 here, They should be knockoffs, That castle nut is holding the hub / Bearing assembly to the axle, and once removed that nut has to be replaced with a new one, so it"s not reasonable that nut has to come off to get the rotors off. Try, remove the tire and lift the caliper assembly off the rotor, use penetrating oil, liquid wrench, W D 40 around the lugs as they may be part of the rotor assembly, Then with a hammer tap moderately around the edge of the rotor to loosen it, keep the gear in Neautrel so you can turn the rotor while tapping with the hammer and use that penetrating oil around the lug studs and around the hub. The rotor should fit around the hub where that nut is and thru the lug studs that hold the tire on the axle.
