I'm having problems removing my front rotor's for my 2001 hyundai accent gsi. is the center hub holding on the rotors? or is it just rust ceasing the rotors and i can just knock it off with a hammer. i have everything removed. now its only the rotors in the way. i just want to make sure if i hammer the rotor off. that the center hub is not holding down that rotor.

Re: brake rotors for hyundai accent
The rotor is mounted to the hub by 4 bolts. The procedure is described in the service manual. Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register. You'll have access to the information you want after you register (shop manual, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc.).

Front hub bearing, remove tire, remove caliper and caliper holding bracket, you do not have to remove brake caliper from brake hose, just set it aside, if 4X4 remove front axle nut that goes through center of rotor, also remove brake rotor, disconnect elec, A.B.S connector, remove three bolts on back side of hub bearing, remove hub bearing, some times you will need to knock hub bearing out with a hammer.Reverse to install new hub bearing.
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.
hi from uk to remove rotors/ discs as in uk remove wheel then remove the sprung clip that holds caliper to mounting remember how fitted ! then remove the 2 x bolts securing caliper to the carrier these are at rear of caliper then remove caliper carefully as not to put undue strain on hose ? the rotors/discs are simply secured to the hub assy with 2x countersunk crossheaded bolts/screwed into hub then you may need to tap disc/rotor firmly from b/hind to remove off hub ? reassembly is reverse proceedure just one bit of advice ! these contersunk bolts can round off the x/head but if you use a good driver and hitimpact the driver in bolt it usually frees em or if you have impact driver ? no problem ! if the bolts fail to come out? do not worry ! just drill off the head of bolt and remove disc/rotor these bolts are onle fitted to keep the wheel bolt holes in line with rotor when wheel is removed so play no part in braking !hope this explains clear to you remember !new rotors new pads! not old ones and make sure you bleed the both brake calipers to rid of old fluid from calipers this will make a dfference to your brake feel and operation/travel of pedal good luck
Depends somewhat if it's a front rotor or a rear rotor. The most common problem will be "corrosion" that's binding the two metal parts together. If you are not trying to reuse the rotor after turning (many are throwaways now adays) take a large hammer and bang the outer edge of the rotor. The vibration should cause the corrosion to break apart, and the rotor should pull away. If your planning on re-using the rotor after turning use a large rubber mallet.
The front rotors have about a 3/4 inch common surface between the rotor and the wheel hub. You may need to bang on the backside of the rotor as you slowly turn the rotor in order to cause the two parts to slide apart. It can be a slow process, but you should see some movement (but it must be even movement around the entire rotor. The back rotors have far less common surface and a few good waps should break the parts free.
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.
First make sure you have the park brake on Raise the front end make sure to support with jack stands Remove tires
this should leave the front brakes exposed
there are two slide bolts holding the caliper in place loosen both and remove
then wedge a screw driver between the inner pad and the rotor and lightly pry towards you to take some pressure off of the caliper
you should now be able to lift off the caliper it will still have the brake line attached to it so be sure to secure it to something ie a bungie strap to the suspension or something do not just let it hang by the brake line
slide out the old pads out of the caliper mounting braket
now take a caliper press and push the piston back into the brake caliper use the old inner pad do not push directly on the caliper piston (if you dont have a caliper press just substitute a c clamp it works fine)
if replacing the rotors remove the caliper bracket once again two bolts
remove the caliper bracket
Make Sure to inspect the caliper for leaks or damage
To install reverse and youll be done before you know it
Make sure to lube slide pins with a small amount of brake grease and make sure the caliper moves freely apon installation
After you have done both sides
set down car and slowly pump the brake pedal about 15 times to close the distance between caliper piston and brake pads thats all
If you are talking about the brake rotors, you do NOT remove the 30 mm nut. That nut just holds the axle shaft to the hub. Remove the caliper and the caliper bracket, the rotor should come off, you may have to tap the brake rotor to dislodge it from the center hub.
Hit the sides of the rotor's center section (where the lug holes are) with a hammer - often, they'll seize from the heat of the braking system. Several firm taps on it all the way around usually loosens it. If not, hit it harder (seriously). Just don't hit the lug studs or you'll flatten the threads and have to replace them.
