Question about 2005 Kia Sorento
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).

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.

make sure parking brake is off
take off caliper
if the park brake shoes inside rotor are tight then you have to loosen the adjuster to remove
theres a hole in the rotor rotate it up and look through hole until you see the adjuster wheel loosen by rotating adjuster with flat blade screw driver

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.
