It is a kept rotor... you have to press/pry/pull off the abs ring to access the many many torqx bolts that hold the rotor in place, these other answers are all wrong

SOURCE: Remove front Brake Rotor

Try opening up the caliper with a flat screwdriver thru the opening in the middle of the housing.pry on the rotor and pull towards you to push the rotor back.That should loosen it up enough for you to get it of the rotor.If that dont work you probably got a stuck caliper and have to release the brake line and do the procedure again. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: how to remove the rear drum off a GMC W4500

This is a full floating axle. The drum and the hub come off together. The axle must be pulled by removing the bolts or nuts on the hub center.Then the large nuts behind it must be removed. Now the hub and drum assembly can be removed. If you've already done that and the drum still won't come off back off the brake adjuster as far as possible. A ridge of rust sometimes forms inside the lip of the drum that will keep it from sliding off until the shoes are backed off. Very worn shoes can also literally wear grooves into the drum and make it impossible to remove until the adjusters are backed all the way off. If everything is rusted solid and you can't get anything to move check with the owner and, if it's O.K. with him, take the sawsall or the torch and cut the lower part of the backing plate out of your way. Then cut the adjuster in half. Now the drum will come off.

How do I complete isuzu rodeo brake disc replacement?


If the abs tone ring needs to be removed to gain access to the rotor, then use a torch to heat it until it spins freely and pop it off with a couple of screw drivers. If, however, the tone ring is bolted to the rotor, just use an allen wrench to remove the bolts and then put it on the new rotor. But, I'm guessing by the way you posted the question that the toothed tone ring needs to come off before you can even get the rotor off.
As far as a stuck rotor, I recommend heat, or without a torch, bang it with a rubber mallet, (please wear eye protection!) until it falls off. I have had to hit brake drums VERY hard, but not often a rotor. However, trucks have all sorts of rust.

I want to remove the front brake rotor from my 2000 gmc 4x4 3500. It looks like I have to remove the outer hub used to attach the wheels and also remove the spindle nut. After the 8 nuts and the spindle...


U use an air hammer with a pointy tool in it. Then u drive the lug studs out. The hub and rotor mate using the knurled area of the lug studs.

Anti lock kicking in at 5 mph when brakes applied


9 out of 10 times this problem arises when a wheel speed sensor goes bad or a corresponding tone ring breaks. the abs light may not come on, and there will be no code in the abs control module in this situation. but what happens is the tone ring goes around an axle or is part of a wheel hub. and it's got slots in it that "excite" the sensor. if there is a crack in a tone ring, it'll work properly most of the time but intermittently will make the abs module think that wheel is spinning at a different speed than the others, making the abs kick on.

I cannot get the back rotor off


Rear wheels are more suseptible to corrosion than are the front. A corrosion ring forms between the brake rotor and the wheel hub assembly. Use a large rubber mallet or a baby sledge to hit along the top edge of the rotor in order to break the corrosion ring. Some care may be needed if you are trying to re-use the rotor after they are turned down, otherwise you can hit the rotor much harder, and they should break free.

If not, apply some heat to the seam area between the rotor and hub. It will smoke, but do not get it red hot. Remove the heat and try using the hammer once again. Be careful not to grab the hot portion of the rotor when it breaks free.

Front wheel bearing 2000 GMC Safari


Yes is fairly easy job because the wheel bearing comes off whit the brake rotor just remove the brake caliper the rotor center cap the safety ping and the center nut on the brake rotor the hole thing will come off but "NOTE" you are going to need a new brake rotor because if the bearing was bad probably the rotor is bad to a new grease retainer seal and of course plenty of grease. Good luck :)
