Front rotor removal

Do I need to remove the cap and cotter pin to remove the rotor on my 2005 Kia Sorento? Or can I just pull the rotor off without removing the cap? The rotor is stuck on and I am having trouble removing it.

No need to remove cap. just use a rubber mallet or a hammer and a block of wood to loosen the rotor but not damage it if it is stuck or (seized up).

Should just pop right off. Hit it gently with rubber mallet, it might have rusted to the hub

SOURCE: remove factory radio

This is one that you can stare at all day. the trim pieces that include the air vents (usually woodgrain) will come off and expose the screws that hold the radio in. They are held in by spring clips, a gentle pry will get you started. Here is a website that shows how to remove one for a cell phone mount: http://www.bracketron.com/main/xmain_landing_page.php You may have to take the climate controll screws out to get the radio out far enough to reach the plugs on the back. You should be able to figure out the rest. good luck, and be gentle.. the trim is getting cheaper and cheaper, and is really easy to break.

SOURCE: I can't remove the rotors from my 2005 kia

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.

Replace front brake rotor


Remove wheel, Remove brake caliper, remove brake caliper bracket, depending on which setup it is, either the rotor will just slide off now, or it will have a grease cap on the front, peck it off with a regular screwdriver and hammer, pull the big cotter pin, remove nut, then take off rotor, bearings will come out with rotor, if the bearings are good repack them with grease, and pack the front cap with grease when you put it back together.. just barely snug the nut, dont tighten it up. put the cotter cap and pin back in, tap the grease cap back on, bolt caliper bracket back on, put caliper with pads back on, put wheel back on, and your done.. hopefully you have the easy setup where you just pull the caliper bracket off, and put the new rotor on... but if it were me and you had my luck, you wouldnt have that model lol. hope this helps, and if you need any more help, feel free to ask, id be happy to assist you.

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.

Change front rotors kia rondo 2007


Remove the tire, remove the brake calipers, 2 bolts on back side of rotor, remove the carter pin that retains the bolt position if equiped, remove the center nut. When you pull the rotor off watch for a set of bearings to drop out. To install the new rotor reverse the process.
