A good 5 pound sledge hammer and ear plugs, That's what i have to use once and a blue moon and make sure first that there is no retainer clip on the wheel studs holding the rotor's in place. Good luck and hope this helps. Be safe friend.

No easy way other than a large mallet and start to turn them and keep pounding. The rust has built up and you have to break them free. Rotors are cheep with all the imported rotors comming in, I like to turn mine but at this point you might not be able to. Even if you put antiseize on them when you install the the e-brake on the inside of the rotor has never gotten better.

Horrible squeaking brakes 2008 chevy malibu ls


I have done brake work for 50 years & never had one problem

So whomever is doing your work isn't doing what is necessary

If all rust is removed from all mating surfaces,& all sliding surfaces
& anti-seize is applied to those areas, you won't have any problems

Silicone Brake Lube to the caliper pins

You have to machine the rotors properly & you have to use quality
pads-Raybestos or Wagner & their best,most expensive ones

Once a year min you start over & repeat the rust removal & lube
You only need to machine or replace rotors every 2 to 4 years

Brake Fluid-- HAS TO (MUST BE) Replaced/Flushed every 2 years

Parking Brake Cables can not be rusted inside & hung up

I'm 100% sure they never removed any rust,never lubed a thing,
& there is rust on the wheel bearing hubs,rotor faces,back of wheels
& even used an air gun to over tighten the wheels

That is what the butchers at all shops do

When a vehicle is built, it comes off the assy line bone dry
& the brakes rust on a the rail cars for 5 weeks getting to a dealer

Brake cable to tight


depending on the year,make and model of this car you will need to loosen the rear shoes a bit or loosen e-brake cable adjustment,

A few questions here, will car roll easy if on a small incline? or is the problem just that the e- brake is hard to push?

Bad cables may give the effect that brake is too tight but the cables get rusted and so does the e-brake hardware causing a hard e-brake handle or pedal, does the e-brake work when applied?

Is there a certain way to change rear brake rotors. They seem to be frozen and will not come off. I did not see a set screw in the rotors like some of the new models have.


ok i have been doing the for 22 yrs..heres the prob...inside the rear brake rotors r ur parking brake shoes..there is either a rust lip the built up on the inside of the rotor causing the parking brake shoes to grab the rust lip when u try to remove the rotor..if this is the case u will also need to repalce the rear parking shoes and the parking brake shoe holddown spring kit since it will probably break when u have to pry the rotor off....or u maybe able to de adjust the rear shoes by the self adjuster...look on the back side of the other side of the brake rotor an u should see a over slot just below the control arm...if it there use a brake spoon or straight slot screw driver to de adjust the rear park shoes.move it up or down ..one way will tighten them the other way will loosen them...if ur rotor doesnt move at all take off the rear caliper an hit the back side of the brake rotor to knock it off

Sorry, I have run into this problem many times in my shop. The problem is that there is very little clearance between the rotor and hub flange, as the rotor rusts it expands arround the flange. In worst cases I haven't been able to save the rotor and have had to cut them off.
some times I've been able to sneek in and remove the sensors to remove the rust with out removing the rotor, but it always very tight quarters.

Audi shakes on highway at 45mph and then stop after 10 min.


I would suspect several things

First have the tires spin balanced - my guess is you have a seperated tire
You could have a brake hanging up on that wheel
Or not making proper contact - thus causing the rust or more correctly not removing the rust
It may also be a wheel bearing

My car seems to warp front discs? Serviced the


Check your rear brakes. If the rears are not adjusted or functioning properly, they will put more strain on the front brakes, thus heating the rotors up too fast. Since the rotors in the front cannot dissipate the heat fast enough, they will most likely continue to warp until the problem with the rear brakes is fixed. Always remember: when installing brakes you need to lube all of the key points. On disc brakes, lube the area where the pads sit in the hangar, make sure the clips are free of dirt and rust. Lube the pad backing (not the part that contacts the rotor!) and be sure to remove and lube the sliding pins on the caliper well. I personally like using AGS's Sil Glyde or CeramLube. These withstand heat the best. On drums, lube the metal side of the shoe that contacts the backing plate, and be sure to lube your adjusters well. Also, very important: if you have rear drums, make sure they are adjusted the right way, you dont want them to drag, but you dont want to go thru another set of front rotors again! Good luck, 99% of the time, too much focus is put on the front brakes and not the rears. Focus on the rears!

Thanks for asking!

If the vehicle has rear drum brakes, I would check the adjustment on them, if they are too loose, this will cause the brake pedal to go down low.
