Is the rotor attached with screws? You will need a large phillips(star) screw driver, or hammer and centerpunch.

I trying to figure out how to remove the front brake rotor of a 2000 kia sportage. All the brake parts have been removed. I have opened the cap but it looks like it is crimped so that it can not be...


The dust cap does not have to be removed and the hub nut is secured with a cotter pin, and the two other holes should be two 8 mm fine thread bolt holes across from each other on the brake rotor that are not used to pull the rotor off, but instead are used to screw two bolts into those holes and then use a ratchet or wrench to tighten the bolts down and push the rotor off of the hub.

I can't remove the rotors from my 2005 kia sorento. I removed brake stuff. There are 2 phillups head screws on rotor but can't get them out. do they need to be removed? If so how.


Changing the brake pads can be done without removing the calipers. However to take off the rotor, the calipers needs to be out. The 2 Phillips screws are to hold it in the place, but to access the rotor, it has to be through the calipers. Good luck.

Kia rotor


Slightly loosen tire lug nuts, raise car with jack, remove lug nuts and wheel, remove caliper bolts from brake calipers. Open cap on brake fluid reservoir, place folded towel over top of reservoir and set cap on the paper towel to hold it in place, use a large 9-inch C-clamp to squeez in on front brake pad about 1/8 inch. REmove caliper from rotor. Hang caliper from shock coils with strong bungie strap so there is no pressure on the brake line. Remove bolts from caliper plate and remove caliper plate. Using oversized phillips screwdriver end attached to a 3/8 inch flex wrench, you will carefully put light pressure in a counter-clockwise direction to remove the brass screws and tap the flex wrench at the same time with a large 3-pound hammer driving the screwdriver end into the top of the screw as you put more pressure on the wrench to loosen the screw. This is about the only way to remove brass screws without "damaging them" and they are a dealer item not found in parts store. There should be two screws holding the rotor on. Then spray liquid wrench or penetrating oil into all holes on rotor toward center to help dissolve rust. Wait three minutes then tap rear of rotor lightly with large hammer taking care NOT to hit the thin metal rotor shield. Eventually, this tapping force will loosen the rotor. Use same technique of tapping the flex wrench when applying pressure to wrench to tighten the brass screws when replacing the rotors.

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

1998 honda civic front rotor replacement


Varvah, front rotor: Jack up the car, put on safety stands, remove wheel, remove caliper mounting bolts (2), hang caliper in place w/ bungy cord, rope, etc. so you don't stress the brake line, remove caliper mounting bracket bolts, remove bracket from rotor, remove retaining screws on the front of the rotor, remove rotor. If it's stuck, get 2 - 8x 1.25 mm screws (longer version of what u removed), tighten them in the rotor, they will push it off easily. Reverse to install, tighten bracket to 80 ft lbs, caliper to 20 ft lbs. Let me know if u need more info. Countrycurt0
