SOURCE: How do I remove my front rotors from a 96 Sonoma

First remove calipers. Support with wires to prevent strain on brake hose. Look for keeper screw on rotor. Rotor should release but may be stuck due to corrosion. Warning brakes require extreme caution due to safety.

SOURCE: how to remove front rotors on a 1999 Sonoma 2

these are whats called fixed rotors. once the wheel and brake caliper have been removed, the dust cap needs to be removed, the cotter pin, the the washer, and with a pair of channel lock pliers, you can remove the nut which holds the bearings in place. you have one more washer and the front bearing which will come out as soon as you start pulling the rotor towards you. make sure you keep the bearings clean and it is a good idea to repack them. to reinstall reverse procedure(obviously) but when you go to put the nut back on you can tighten it down snug with the pliers, rotate the wheel a couple of times and unsnug the nut and retighten the nut til there is resistance and then 1/4 turn. be safe.

I just replaced front brake pads myself. 65K Miles. Rotors were fine. Now that everything is back together the Acadia bounces down the road at any speed. What did I do wrong?

bounces or wiggles ?? as if it wiggles then you've missed a warped rotor by not changing em ,(there can be more wrong with rotors than just physical wear ) this will make your front wheel bearings go bad early if you allow them to wiggle this way BTW if you change rotors its a good idea to at least regrease bearings if not replace em , and allways get new grease seals don't try to reuse em

I have a 2004 Ford expedition I need to know how

The problem with these units is the Emergency brakes are inside of the rear rotors. This causes problems in several ways. The E. brake material can jam inside the rotor/drum and the E. brake needs to be fully retracted to give clearance to remove the rotor. Sometimes the rotor rusts to the axle hub.

Check the link behind the rotor. There are different styles and this pivot may need to be hit with something to drive it closed. Just because the brake cable is retracted does not mean the pivot is fully retracted.

For rust, sometimes it is necessary to put the trans in neutral and turn the axles at the same time you squirt oil in behind the wheel studs. By rotating the axle shaft and tapping the rotor, you force oil into the back surface of the rotor. A rotor puller may be necessary.

The left rear tire locked up only when going forward

Hello, Most likely you have broken Emergency brake pads trapped inside the inner rear Rotor or drum. There is also a possibility that a rear wheel bearing has collapsed especially if you have heard a whining noise while driving.

Since the Sable is a Front-wheel drive vehicle, the rear wheels have few parts. This will not cost as much to fix. The rear rotor/drum will need to be removed and the defective parts replaced. The rear rotor/drum will probably be bad along with needing pads or bearings.

The other rear wheel should be checked for damage too. I hope my solution is helpful to you.

Replace rear brake pads

Rear disc brake pads offer better performance and are not as affected by moisture like conventional brake shoe style brakes are. Rear disc brakes are similar to front disc brakes. The main difference is that rear disc brake systems must incorporate the emergency brake system. There are two methods widely used for the emergency brake with rear disc systems. The first system is a brake shoe inside the brake disc that is actuated by the emergency brake lever. The second is a screw style actuator inside the brake caliper. When activated the brake pads are forced into the brake disc and held tightly by the emergency brake lever.
Step 1 - Identify Rear Disc Brake Components
rear_brake_pads.jpg Rear disc brake assembly includes; rear brake disc, rear brake pads, brake caliper mount and a caliper mounting screw. (Note: Some vehicles do not have the rotor mounting screw.)
Step 2 - Removing the Rear Brake Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_2.jpg To replace rear brake pads and rotors the rear brake caliper needs to be removed. First loosen the rear brake caliper mount bolts and remove them. Turn counter clockwise.
Step 3 - Lift Rear Brake Caliper from The Caliper Mount
rear_brake_pads_3.jpg After the caliper mount bolts have been removed, gently lift the brake caliper from the caliper mount. Inspect the caliper slides; they should move freely in the caliper mount. Remove rear brake pads and hardware.

Step 4 - Removing Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_4.jpg With a socket wrench or other appropriate removal tool, loosen the rear brake caliper mounting bolts. Remove bolts and lift the caliper mount and remove it from the vehicle. Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole. Tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub holding on tightly, using both hands. You do not want to drop the rotor.

Step 5 - Removing Rear Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor.jpg Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole, tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub, hold on using both hands and do not drop.

Step 6 - Install New Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor_2.jpg Check the new rotor against the old brake rotor to make sure they are the same size. Clean the mating surface on the wheel hub before the new brake rotor is installed. Reinstall rotor retainer screw.
Step 7 - Reset Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brakes_7.jpg Before new brake pads can be installed, the rear brake caliper must be reset. The reset tool winds the piston back into position so the new brake pads will fit. This style of brake caliper will not compress with a clamp tool; it can only be reset with the proper reset tool.
Step 8 - Reinstall Rear Caliper Mount and Install New Rear Brake Pads
rear_brake_rotor_3.jpg After the caliper has been reset, reinstall caliper mounting bolts and make sure the bolts are tight. Then match up the old brake pads to the new brake pads. They should be exactly the same except, of course; the old ones will be worn out. Check the new brake pads for proper fit and install any brake hardware that is required.
Step 9 - Remount Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brake_rotor_4.jpg Reinstall the brake caliper, align brake pad hardware and reinstall caliper mounting bolts. (Note: align the rear peg of the brake pad to the groove in the caliper piston.) Recheck and retighten all caliper and caliper mount bolts. Bleed brake system to relieve any air in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly. This operation forces the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors. DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE until proper brake pedal operation resumes. When test driving vehicle listen for any unusual noises during the operation of the brakes.
WARNING! Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components. Never move a car without proper brake pedal operation.

Cant get the rotor off of a 99 , any suggestions

Remove the brake caliper, and caliper holder if it goes over the rotor. If it's 2 wheel drive, remove the center cap, take out the cotter pin. Remove the nut holding on the rotor. If it's 4 wheel drive, once you remove the associated brake parts, spray some WD-40 around the studs and the center of the rotor, try striking the rotor with a rubber hammer. Often the rotor will rust to the hub, on the 4 wheel drives. The 2 wheel drives, have the rotor with the hub for the bearings together, the 4 wheel drive has a "top hat" type rotor.

Im trying to install a new rear hub assembly and cannot get the rotor off. Any sugestions.

Remove the rotors. Rusted rotors will most likely stick to the car due to the iron oxidizing and bonding to the mount of the wheel. If this happens, you are going to need a little force to remove the rotor from the wheel. With the car properly secured, get a single-hand sledge mallet (rubber preferably to protect the rotor). If you don’t have a rubber mallet, use a block of wood to absorb direct hits. Start at the top of the rotor and tap the edge of the rotor gently as you move clockwise around the rotor. Once loose, remove the rotor from the car.

Rear Brake rotor removal

Be very careful as my 75 year old pappy taught me this trick..... take of the wheel, make sure the rear of the vehicle is off the ground (both sides). Re affix 3 lugs back on the bolts (about 1/2 way tuened down). Start the vehilce and place in drive -spin the rear wheels and the force will cause the rotor to loosen against the lugs.
