I'm not sure whether or not you have rear wheel drive or AWD ...but here is general help ... Check to if there are pal nuts, flat head bolts Phillips #3, or rivets ... if so it may be an independant hub (AWD most likely)... remove the bolts or the rivets. If not you have a one piece ... or check the replacement rotor ... And then you have to remove the bearing cap, the cotter pin, washer and outer bearing ...then the rotor, and inner bearing ... that would be my best guess ... out of hand and sight.

    Oh and if it's rotor only ... and no extra retainers, it's most likely rusted on ... got a hand torch? heat up the rotor just a bit (don't go crazy and burn up the grease in the hub or burn up the ABS sensor) around the hub and few cracks with a hammer without damaging the studs as you try to break the rust's hold ... I've seen some vehicles with puller holes: empty bolt holes on the rotor .... like 1/4 20 simply screw in bolts and it pulls off the rotor ... One OTHER thing to check if you have it loose and it won't pull off ... there may be an ABS sensor that may be holding it in, at the rear of the rotor (sorry to be so vague, but I've done a few brake jobs, on a bunch of different vehicles, and I cannot remember the 96 Safari or it was the 88 Astro, or 96 blazer ...

Give it a good hard hammer with a 5 pound hammer. If your planing to use it again, use and plastic hammer or put wood against the Rotor where your going to Hit it.
The rotor is held on by rust to the hub assembly
Good luck and wear ear plugs, kinda hurts the ears. LOL

Should the center spindle nut and 2 torgued phillip head screws be removed to replace front brake rotor on 1999 honda accord lx


will try to help. 1st remove the wheel, then remove the 2 caliper bolts that hold the brake caliper on. after removal of brake caliper, [it should just pull off after the 2 bolts are removed] replace the brake pads[be sure to apply anti squeal lube to the outer side of the pads..not the pad itself,the one not contacting the brake rotor] install the pads, the you will need a C clamp to push the brake caliper pistons back into the caliper. i've used this installation easily. use the old pad ,place it against the caliper piston,then apply the C clamp and push the caliper piston back into the brake caliper, then the brake caliper will slide back over the new pads easily, no need to bleed the brakes if you use this solution. replace the brake caliper bolts, then go to next side and repeat the process. after the replacement of the front brake pads,pump the brakes with engine running!!! it's really a simple process. be sure the brake pads are facing the brake rotors with the [pads] facicing the rotors. no metal facing metal. easy! if you have added brake fluid recently, do not be alarmed if you see fluid coming out of the brake master cylinder,when you use the C clamp to collaspe the brake caliper back into the recessed position. [as always when you have to add brake fluid to the brake master cylinder,it only means your brakes are wearing naturally. if you have a vibration in front wheels or steering wheel when braking, you have a brake rotor or both front brake rotors that need replacement with your brakes also. hope this helps and as always, please get a second opinion if you have doubt. an expert will be happy to help. thank you for choosing fixya.com

How do I remove the front rotors from my 1999 honda accord


Removal & Installation

d4d9fd4.gif
After removing the caliper body, unfasten the retaining bolts and remove the caliper mounting bracket, in order to remove the rotor

  1. Use a siphon or clean turkey baster to remove about half of the brake fluid from the master cylinder.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle and remove the tire/wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the caliper mounting bolts, then lift the caliper assembly away from the brake rotor.
  4. Use a suitable piece of wire to suspend the caliper assembly. This will prevent the weight of the caliper from being supported by the brake flex hose which will damage the hose.
  5. Once the caliper body and brake pads are removed, unfasten the caliper bracket mounting bolts, then remove the bracket from the rotor.
  6. Remove the rotor retaining screws.
  7. Remove the brake rotor by pulling it straight off the wheel mounting studs or if seized in place, remove the stubborn brake rotor by threading in two 8 x 1.25mm bolts, two turns at a time until the brake rotor is released.
To install:
  1. If necessary, completely retract the piston into the caliper using a large C-clamp or other suitable tool as provided in the front disc brake pad replacement procedures in this section.
  2. Install the brake rotor onto the wheel hub and tighten the mounting screws.
  3. Install the caliper mounting bracket and secure with the retaining bolts.
  4. Install the caliper and pad assembly over the brake rotor and mounting bracket and install the mounting bolts.
  5. Fill the master cylinder to the proper level with fresh brake fluid.
  6. Install the tire/wheel assembly and lower the vehicle.
  7. Pump the brake pedal until the brake pads are seated and a firm pedal is achieved before attempting to move the vehicle.
CAUTION Do not move the vehicle until a firm pedal is obtained.

  1. Road test the vehicle to check for proper brake operation.

The front rotors are behind the hub will the hub slide out with a puller? or do i have to remove those ruted shut bolts, behind the caliper bracket


In order to remove rotors, once you have removed the tires, will need to remove the brake caliper.

Caliper is held in place by two bolts that face the inside of the vehicle. Remove these two bolts, then slide the caliper away from the rotor. Rotor should then just come off.

Corrosion may prevent the rotor from just sliding off, especially if you are up north in the regions where salt is used extensively in winter months.

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.

I need to know the procedure for r and r on a front rotor if this is something that can be done at home with limited tools?


1999 Taurus/Sable Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1999 Taurus/Sable Workshop Manual REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Procedure revision date: 06/25/1998 Disc Removal
  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  1. Remove wheel and tire assembly. Be careful to avoid damage or interference with caliper bleeder screw fitting and front disc brake rotor shield (2K004).
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Handle front disc brake rotor (1125) and disc brake caliper (2B120) assembly in such a way as to prevent deformation of front disc brake rotor , and nicking, scratching or contamination of brake linings/rotor surfaces.
    NOTE: To prevent damage, do not allow disc brake caliper to hang by the front brake hose (2078) .


    Remove caliper anchor plate bolts and discard. Position disc brake caliper out of the way. Prevent separation of caliper housing from anchor bracket because contamination of guide pin journals can occur.
  1. NOTE: If excessive force must be used during front disc brake rotor removal, the front disc brake rotor should be checked for runout prior to installation.


    If additional force is required to remove front disc brake rotor , apply Rust Penetrant and Inhibitor F2AZ-19A501-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M99C56-A on front and rear rotor/hub mating surfaces. First, strike front disc brake rotor between lug bolts (1107) with a plastic hammer.

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
