Normally the holes are threaded and are there to aid in removing the rotors if they have rusted up or over heated and warped most bolts are 10 MM and need to be about one inch long, be sure to have the pad retainers off before removing.

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.

The rotors on the mercury topaz 1993 will not come off. They are either really rusty on there, or there is another problem, any tips, hints, or tricks?

If you have 4 wheel disc brakes the rear rotors may have a drum inside which houses the emergency brakes. Those type need to have the Star wheels loosened to clear the E-brakes.

Go to Autozone or Oreillys and ask to see new parts. You can look at the lips of the new parts and see the contact areas. While you are there ask if they have pullers for loan. Get a rust penetrating solvent to spray on the center ring of the Rotor and the lug holes/studs.

I live in the Rustbelt, here is what I had to do. Look behind the Rotor. Rust builds up where the rear axles are covered by the Rotor. A Dremmel tool with a grinding tip can be inserted behind the rotor and the seam ground down. Rotate the wheel inch by inch until you clean it full circle. Then use penetrating oil. Or use a chiesel behind the Rotor and do the same thing.

Make a tool by using nuts, bolts and big washers with closed end wrenches. There is an area between the caliper mounting holes and rotor that can be exploited. A wedge tool can be fit in this space so when you turn the nut on the bolt, the nut will drive a closed end wrench or socket against the rotor. Just stick the bolt into the socket and the head of the bolt against the caliper mount. Run the nut and washer into the socket and let the socket press into the Rotor. Hit the Rotor with something heavy.

You may damage the Rotor, at this point you just want the Rotor off. Loosen the tool, rotate the Rotor, and repeat. Once you get the rust to crack loose you are in good shape. New Rotors cost maybe $10 more a hub than machining an old rotor anyway.

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.

Do I a puller to remove the brake rotor on my 06 gmc? what is the 2 tapped hole for?

Cannot get the rear discs off my 2000 rodeo for a brake and disc change. everything is off, they will not slide off.

Check the specs,sometimes even though the front rotors slide off ,the rear rotors may be of a different design and you may have to take out the center bolt to get them off.If thats not the case then you may need a rotor removal tool.There should be a couple of threaded holes somewhere on the throat of the rotor,the tool will bolt into those holes then there will be a center bolt that you will tighten against the bearing bolt,as you tighten this up it should pop off the rotor.

How do you replace a front axel shaft

Old technology dana axle, i believe. If so youll need the brakes off and rotor and the whole wheel bearing hub assembly(i believe bolt in with 4 bolts) this leaves pretty big open hole to draw out axle through. No c-clips or anything holding the axle in. just pull it out. Hope I helped. Thanks

How to change brake rotors on '99 Accent?

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.
