Like said, chevy colorado is pain in a to replace rotors.you have to remove hub,ball joints, abs sensor wire on back.pads you can do without any problem but rotor, its a lot of work.

you can have garage LATHE the rotors on truck without removing them if they are not worn out.i would not tackle this job unless you have tools and know how to do it.break a ABS sensor and that will cost you 65 dollars ,a lot of us do that, we break wires .abs has toi be just right to work also,bump it out center while removing hub and you will get a light on dash,then you have to tear it apart again.

If this is a 4wd the rotors are "captured" and machined on the truck using an on car lathe. Otherwise you should get a printout of all the steps from a dealer.

Having trouble removing rotor from a 2006 Colorado 2wd. Unbolted just abourt everything but I'm not able to remove the rotor. Thanks Dan


Some times corrosion can cause the rotor to adhere to the hub assembly. Try hitting the back side of the rotor with a hammer. If that does not work you will need to heat up the area of the Rotor that is nearest the hub with a torch and then use a hammer to remove it.

Left front hub replacement 2WD.


2WD pickups don't have hubs. They have rotors with bearings. Once you have the brake assembly supported, remove nut from spindle. Be sure not to strip the threads on the spindle. Remove the front set of bearings and pull the rotor off. Remove the rear set of bearings. Be sure to pack greases into new bearings prior to installation. Insert new rear bearing into rotor and replace onto spindle. Insert new front bearing and washer and re-install nut. Tighten to recommended torque specs, grease fittings and replace brake assembly.

I have a 2004 Chevy Colorado and can not get the hub off to change out my front rotors.


Very, very few cars or trucks require the hub to be removed. In almost all American vehicles, the rotors are just resting on the hub and will come off fairly easily. Make sure you've removed the caliper, then smack the rotors a bit with a rubber mallet. They should come off. If there's a ton of rust, you might need to use some penetrating oil, then smack them a little.

How do i remove thefront rotors on my 05 chey colorado. i removed the hub bolts but the rotor still seemedto be tightly attached. do i need a special tool. i did ot want to try and force it. thaks for your...


As you probably are aware, those rotors are mounted inboard of the outer hub flange on your vehicle. Once you've removed the caliper bracket, you can remove the hub. The four bolts that fasten the hub to the steering knuckle most be removed. If you look behind the steering knuckle you'll see them. If your vehicle is four wheel drive, you must remove the front CV shaft nut as well. You will probably have to disconnect the lower ball joint to slide the shaft out of the hub far enough to get clearance for the bottom bolts. Once you remove the hub from the knuckle, you can remove the rotor from the hub assembly. Incidentally, the hub bolts have thread lock compound on them from the factory, that tends to make them really tough to remove however they will come out. Reinstallation is naturally the reverse of removal. I hope this helps.
