look at the face of the rotor between wheel studs there should be a small threaded hole it usually takes a 12 mm bolt it works like a press thread the bolt in and it should press rotor off, if it is stuborn tap on the side of the rotor (not the edge the side of ur rotors hub flange)
good luck

How to remove drivers side rear rotor? Cannot get it

First, if you have the wheel up and the other tires chocked it is sometimes necessary to turn the rear wheel. You will probably need to disconnect the Battery and put the Trans in Neutral. The backing plate of the wheel has a Rubber cover which hides the Star adjustment wheel for the Emergency brake shoes.

You want to loosen the Star wheel to draw in the Ebrake shoes. Since you are able to turn the Rotor in Neutral, you will know if you have loosened it enough to come off.

If the Rotor still will not come off, put penetrating oil on the studs and the center circle where the rotor meets the axle hub. If you know the rotor is tore up you don't have to be gentle in beating it off. Check your parts prices, a new part may only cost a little more than turning the old rotor.

Let gravity work for you in getting the oil into the hub. Oil the 12 O'clock stud, turn it to the next stud, repeat. Same for the center of the rotor. then hit the rotor between the center and the stud holes.

When you put on the new rotor, put an Antiseize product on the hub. If you ever need to remove the rotor again, it will be much easier to get off. I live in the Rustbelt, this method works.

Stearing wheel is shaking when brakes applied

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. This is most often caused by out of true disc rotors for the brakes. Most brake shops have equipment that will turn the rotors will still installed on the car. The cost should not be more than $35.00 to just have the rotors turned. Keep in mind that they are a brake shop and will be looking for "extra" work while doing the lathe work on your rotors.

Thanks for choosing Fixya.

I have a 2006 F150, that needs a front brakes job, I bough the pads,but they told that I need to buy the hole rotor is that true

You do not need to buy the whole rotor, unless your rotors are shot.
Most brake places will not change brake pads unless you also have your rotors machined or replaced, which makes them about $250 in extra profit... go figure heh?!
anyways, its a good idea to machine your rotors when you replace your pads, they will work better, they will last longer, and you wont feel any movement in the pedal when you are hard braking.
If your rotors are shot, you will need to get those replaced, if you ignore bad rotors, you will eat through your brake pads in a matter of months or even weeks, you wont have half the stopping power you should, if you need to brake really hard it will feel like you are going 40mph on a giant washboard, and you risk your brakes catching and being ripped off the calipers, or ruptoring your brake lines and loosing all your brakes.

With your old brakes, if you didnt feel your pedal bounce up and down really bad when you braked, you should be fine, although it is recomended, if you cant afford it, you cant afford it. But, might not be easy to find a mechanic that will just put the pads on and not make you at least machine them... but you wont find a mechanic at all that will put pads on a rotor that is going to become a risk, so hope your rotors are good enough to work, if you dont want to replace them.

Taking off front rotors to replace them

The rotor are probably rusted to the hub.Try some pb blast and let the sit. If that doesn't work tru a big hammer. I had to remove the hubs and press the rotors off.

Shake in front end

yes that is a very common feeling in warped rotors, if you feel the brake pedal the pulsing then you defintly have warped rotors, replace rotors and brake pads, never reuse pads when they have been in contact with a warped rotor, they will cause the new rotors to warp also

What holds the front brake rotor on, on a 2007 Jeep Cherokee? I have the bolts off from the caliper.

If the braket for the caliper is not obstructing the rotor and the rotor doesn't have retaining screws in between the studs then rust is what's holding your rotor on. rust builds up between the hub and the rotor hat. a good whack with a hammer will free it up, or a prybar. rotate the rotor as you work it back and forth. saftey glasses are a must. becarfull not to damage the studs too.

I trying to remove to disc brake but can't get it off cause of rust. Is there a way I can get it off?

The front and rear discs are made different. If you are working on the rear disc there should be an emergency brake system behind the rotor. You will see a rubber cover on the back of the axle plate. The rear rotor contains a drum brake too! The rear shoes have to be loosened to remove the rotor.
If the front brake rotor is where you are, then you need penetrating oil, something to chisel the rust away behind the rotors backside and a piece of hard wood to hit with a hammer against the rotor. You oil around the bolts and in the center lip of the rotor. Some rotors contain the bearing race and are one piece with the hub, but you have a newer car. Personally I use a 3lb. deadblow hammer but I don't have an air hammer. If you don't have penetrating oil, I once used Cutter insect repellant and it worked.

Put new cliper brake then 3 mile rotor make hot why

Under normal use, rotors get hot, espcially in stop-and-go traffic.  Is the rotor hotter than others?  Don't touch them!  If the rotor is hotter than the others, then the pads are dragging.  If you did the work, re-check that caliper.  If not, take it back where you had the work done.
