You could try product called PB blaster spray. you can buy it at an auto parts store. Wack the bolts a couple of times then spray it on and let it sit for about an hour then try to loosen them again.

How to torque crankshaft pulley centre bolt on kia sportage


Usually with a heavy duty impact wrench (rattle gun). Put some thread-lock compound on the bolt also, as that is standard practice.

There may be at the transmission end some means of stopping the crank from turning, and then you could use a torque wrench.

REMOVE THE WHEEL,THERE YOU WILL SEE THE THE CALIPER. JUST UNBOLT THE LOWER BOLT ON THE CALIPER TO PULL IT UP AND REMOVE THE BRAKE PADS INNER AND OUTER SIDE.

Put the tires back on, start the car and pump the brakes to get the pistons in the right spot.

97 accord, trying to replace the rotors... got the 4 bolts off and the axle nut but cant free the plate in front of the rotor. Might be a rust issue.


The two mounting bolts are installed with Lock tight sealer. Use a 6 pointed boxed end wrench and a hammer on the two bolts. Hit the wrench hard to loosen these bolts up. An impact wrench is much easier to use

Kia rotor


Slightly loosen tire lug nuts, raise car with jack, remove lug nuts and wheel, remove caliper bolts from brake calipers. Open cap on brake fluid reservoir, place folded towel over top of reservoir and set cap on the paper towel to hold it in place, use a large 9-inch C-clamp to squeez in on front brake pad about 1/8 inch. REmove caliper from rotor. Hang caliper from shock coils with strong bungie strap so there is no pressure on the brake line. Remove bolts from caliper plate and remove caliper plate. Using oversized phillips screwdriver end attached to a 3/8 inch flex wrench, you will carefully put light pressure in a counter-clockwise direction to remove the brass screws and tap the flex wrench at the same time with a large 3-pound hammer driving the screwdriver end into the top of the screw as you put more pressure on the wrench to loosen the screw. This is about the only way to remove brass screws without "damaging them" and they are a dealer item not found in parts store. There should be two screws holding the rotor on. Then spray liquid wrench or penetrating oil into all holes on rotor toward center to help dissolve rust. Wait three minutes then tap rear of rotor lightly with large hammer taking care NOT to hit the thin metal rotor shield. Eventually, this tapping force will loosen the rotor. Use same technique of tapping the flex wrench when applying pressure to wrench to tighten the brass screws when replacing the rotors.

Removing chevy venture caliper


Yes it's the right direction but because of so much heating and cooling those bolts get really tight.Spray alot of penetrating oil (WD-40) on and around the bolts.You may even want to tap the wrench on the bolts in the opposite direction slightly (tighten) to help loosen their adherence,then try the right way to losen them.Dont use a torch! It'll melt the "O" ring on the caliper piston.Take your time
