You can try liquid wrench or PB Blaster sprayed on the hub and a bigger hammer. It will just take brute force to get it off. For future endeavors, put anti-seize compound on the hub before installing the rotors.

Change rotors on 2002 chevrolet venture


Make sure the vehicle is safely on jacks,remove the wheels,remove the calipers (DO NOT REMOVE THE BRAKE HOSES FROM THE CALIPERS) and remove the caliper mounting brackets.The rotors should now almost fall off with a rap of a hammer at the hub area.
Make sure the hub is free of rust and dirt before installing the new rotors.On reassembly ALL BOLTS must have THREAD LOCK applied to their threads as is factory procedure.
NEVER USE ANTI-SEIZE ON ANY BRAKE BOLT THREADS!!!!
Apply high temp silicone brake lube on caliper sliders and behind brake pads to eliminate squealing noisy brakes.

Need help to change front wheel stud on 1999 honda civic EX


1. first take the wheel off so you can see the the caliper and the rotor. make sure the car is on stands and not just waving around on a jack.
2. look behind the caliper and use your finger to locate, a pair of bolts behind the caliper... they will be holding the caliper into place on the suface of the rotor, by a simple look and feel you can see these, they should take a 17mm socket undo them and remove the bolts. at this stage you should see the the caliper become loose.
3. remove the caliper by pulling it up and away from the rotor
4. now you can see the rotor remove this it will simply slide away.
5. this will leave the hub exposed and the studs.. you will see that they are wedged into the hub
6. remove the stud/s by hitting them / it with a hammer be carful to not damage the other studs if you just replacing one.
7. there is one spot where the will be a gap and you will be able to get the stud in behind the hub and have a little bit of room, rotate the hub to there, make sure the car is out of gear or this will be very difficult :)
8 once the stud is in take something you can use as a spacer like a larger then the stud nut. for example and then put one of the wheel nuts on and tighten slightly
9. use a hammer and drive the back of the stud home, and slowly tighten the wheel nut as you go.
10. once this is done your finished put all the bits back togeather in the oppersite order and replace the wheel.

Have removed the caliper- cant get the rotor off


after you remove the caliper , remove the caliper holding frame, then undo the screw that holds the rotor on, and then just tap it off with a soft hammer or if replacing the rotors just hit them with a big hammer, hope this helps

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.

Remove front brake rotors on a 2001 vw beetle


There are two different types of calipers used on 01 Beetles.
The first which does not have a detachable caliper bracket is easiest and is as follows:
Remove front wheels
Unbolt calipers from integrated spindle/bracket with proper allen bit and lift calipers and pads and support them.
Remove set screw holding rotor to hub. You may need an impact screwdriver as these seize up with age.
Slide rotor off hub.

The second has a separate detachable bracket that wraps around the rotor.
Remove the front wheels
Remove two caliper bracket bolts holding bracket, caliper and pads onto rotor as a unit.
Some vehicles have a standard bolt in this position, some have a VW special star bolt, so inspect to see if you are equipped to remove these. If you have the star bolts and do not have the proper tool, you need to get it... attempting to use the wrong tool will not end well.
Use a philips screwdriver to remove the set screw holding the rotor to the hub. You may need an impact screwdriver as these screws seize up with age.
Slide rotor off the hub.

How to change front brake rotor on 2000 ford taurus wagon cause front wheel shake when brake apply


Remove both caliper mounting bolts should be 12 or 13 mm bolts. Next remove both caliper mounting bracket bolts 15mm. Rotor should then pull off. If not use large hammer and hit the face off the rotor hub between the wheel studs until it comes loose. Make sure the face of the wheel hub is free of rust between the wheel studs and use high temp anti seize around the center circle of the wheel studs.

On earlier Hyundai's, the rotor is bolted to the hub. You have to remove the knuckle and press off the hub bearing to access 4 mounting bolts (I believe they're 14mm bolts) to detach the rotors from the hubs... then press the bearings back on after you've intalled the new rotors. If you're only resurfacing/remachining the rotors, it's easier to use an on-vehicle brake lathe.
