None of those answers are correct, as they obviously have never worked on an Xterra. As an Xterra owner myself, and automotive TECHNICIAN... You need to remove the rotor/hub assembly. To do this, you will need a 6mm allen head to take out the 6 bolts holding your hub onto the assembly. Once this is off, you will have to remove a snap ring from around the CV axle input splines. Once that is off you will be able to remove the bearing assembly inside. Take a 14mm socket, and remove the 6 bolts holding the hub onto the rotor. You will also need to remove the caliper from the rotor, and hang it with a piece of wire up and out of the way, being sure not to let it hang free or drop. With the caliper off, and all the bolts out you should be able to remove the rotor/hub assembly from the CV splines. Then you can seperate the hub from the rotor, which will probably be rusted on (Cushion the face of the rotor on a towel, and being sure not to hit the rotor, hit the flat surface of the hub with a hammer which will break loose the rust). Tap the top of the old studs out thru the back of the hub...then tap the back of the new studs in. They need to be able not to slide in and out of the bore, but don't necessarily have to be flush with the hub. Once you get everything back together and tighten the lugs on, it will pull the studs the rest of the way thru the hub and seat them properly.
Hopefully this helps...There is no need to take it to a machine shop or do ANY kind of pressing in or out. There is NO giant hub nut and cotter pin to remove.

There are two different types of calipers used on 01 Beetles.
The first which does not have a detachable caliper bracket is easiest and is as follows:
Remove front wheels
Unbolt calipers from integrated spindle/bracket with proper allen bit and lift calipers and pads and support them.
Remove set screw holding rotor to hub. You may need an impact screwdriver as these seize up with age.
Slide rotor off hub.
The second has a separate detachable bracket that wraps around the rotor.
Remove the front wheels
Remove two caliper bracket bolts holding bracket, caliper and pads onto rotor as a unit.
Some vehicles have a standard bolt in this position, some have a VW special star bolt, so inspect to see if you are equipped to remove these. If you have the star bolts and do not have the proper tool, you need to get it... attempting to use the wrong tool will not end well.

On most camries you need to remove the wheels, then brake pads, and the
calipers. Most camries do not use any screws to hold the rotors, thus when you

Hyundai Tiburon 96-01 uses a outer hub system. To replace front rotors. You'll need front bearings as well. The bearing and hub will need to be pressed out of the spindal.

Best to buy bearing and have cash for an alignment job too.Then replace front rotors. Rotor and hub install is ez after you get bearing pressed.Rear rotor and bearing are bolt on though.
