    There is a small nut (9/16) and retaining pin in the center of the axle. It's hard to tell if the studs are part of the rotor. The replacement rotors do not have the studs attached. I checked with the dealership and I do have the correct replacement rotors.

Proabably a large nut that goes through the center of the rotor to attach it to the axle. Are the studs for mounting the rims part of the rotor? If so, this is probably your best bet (you'll probably have to specially purchase this socket because it's going to be a 22+mm).

    Okay, try spraying the back of the rotor and the studs with penetrating oil (my preference is Liquid Wrench over WD-40, but either will work). Let this work it's way in for a few minutes and try again. If there is something you can use to pry against, this may help you get the rotors off, but be careful as you don't want to harm your studs.

I can not take the front rotors off on a 1997 dodge intrepid. It looks like 2 nuts hold them on in the middle but im not sure? What do i do? Do the nuts have to come off in the middle to take the rotors...

Yes they do you just need a big enough socket and you need to have someone pushing on the brakes when you are loosening them so do it before you start to remove calipars or pads and there real tight like 140 to 150 ft lbs but with a bracker bar and maybe a short peice of pipe on the end of the bar its not a problem

I am trying to remove the front rotors on my daughters 2004 toy corolla. Iremoved the pads and callipers but now I can't get the nut off of the axle shaft to remove the rotors?

You do not have to remove the axel shaft bolt!!!!! Simply remove the caliper and its mount. Then all you need to do is cut off the retaining washer on one of the wheel studs. Then the disc will slide off. Tap lightly with a rubber mallet to break free any rust that might be cause the rotor to stick to the hub.

How do you remove the front rotors on a territory awd,does it require a 32mm deep well socket? The calipars have been removed.

If the calipers have been completely removed and the rotors don't just slip off, then the hub, bearing, and all have to come off.

How do you remove the front rotors. I changed my pads but not the rotors. I saw a screw in the rotor with a philip head. I tried using my philip screw driver but it wouldn't turn I was only going to strip...

your rotors are only held on by your brake calipar and wheel when its on..they get rusted on remove wheel break calipar and the rotor should come off use a rubber mallet and beat on rear side and itll pop off.

Jack that side up support it with jack stands or blocks, take off tire, take brake calipar off, brake calipar braket, take off rotor, take off axel hub nut, and the 3 bolts that hold the hub assembly on, then bang it off with a good hammer. Installation is just reverse.
