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 ****.

Replace rear brake pads 2006 Chevy Impala


Hello, to replace the rear brake pads follow the following steps:

1. Lift the Chevy Impala with the jack and place it on jack stands.
2. Remove the wheels with a lug-nut wrench and set them aside. The lug-nut wrench can be found in the trunk of your Chevy Impala.
3. Remove the caliper with a ratchet and use a bungee cord to hang the caliper. Do not let the caliper hang from the brake hose, as the hose might break and cause fluid to leak.

4. Remove the brake caliper bracket from the steering knuckle with a ratchet. Set it aside.

5. Remove the break rotor from the hub. The rotor might require force to be removed; if it does, use a hammer to hit the rotor in the center, where the lug studs are located. Take care not to hit the studs.

6. Remove the new rotor from its packaging and use brake cleaner to remove the grease from the rotor. Grease is applied on the rotor in the factory to inhibit rust during storage.

7. Install the new rotor onto the hub.

8. Install the caliper bracket with new brake pads onto the rotor and fasten it to the steering knuckle. Use a ratchet to tighten the bolts.
9. Open the master cylinder reservoir so you don't break a seal while compressing the brake caliper.

10. Compress the brake caliper with a C-clamp, so that the caliper can fit over the new brake pads. Install the caliper by securing it to the brake caliper bracket with a ratchet.

Thanks

How to remove the rear brake rotor on a 2006 dodge ram 3500 dually


Single rear wheel - Remove both caliper bolts.. remove caliper and pads.. remove rotor.. they are usually rusted on pretty good.

Rear Dually- the rear rotors are mounted with the hub assembly.. you must first remove the rear axles.. then remove nut holding load on bearings.. then the rotor and hub assembly will come off as one unit.. removed rotor from hub..

Can't remove rear disc brakes and roters to be replaced


If wheel and calipers are off, and no retainers on studs, spray some penetrating lube in center of hub where rotor slides over hub shoulder. Let it sit for a minute or two, then place a block of wood against outside edge of rotor and hit block with a hammer. May have to give it a good hit, around perimeter in a few spots to get it to jar loose in center at hub. Usually just rusted. Better if you have a big rubber mallet, and hit hard all around outside area of rotor, but block of wood will do the job as well.

I Can't get front rotors off my 2006 Toyota Camry.


On most camries you need to remove the wheels, then brake pads, and the calipers. Most camries do not use any screws to hold the rotors, thus when you remove the calipers you should be able to remove rotors without problems.

Need help changing the front rotors on my chevy 3500 4x4 dually


Have to pull the front wheels, next back out the two caliper bolts (Allen head), next slide the caliper out of it's seat and set up on the spindle, careful not to damage the flex brake line. This will now free the rotor to come off the spindle. This is also a good time to check/replace brake pads. Chances are if your changing rotors, due to brake damage, warped or other, the pads need changed. This is simply done by sliding the old pads out and placing a C clamp over the piston to back it into the caliper housing to allow room to install new pads. Apply a little antisieze lub behind the pad between the piston and also anywhere the new pad bears. Install the caliper in reverse order and put the wheels back on. Remember to test the brakes before hitting the road, The new pads will have to be pushed out by applying brakes a few times. Then you should be good to go.
Hope this helps.
