    I am trying to take the rear rotor off and it is stuck. It might be caught with the hub break. The other expert thought I should bang it out. I think he is missing a step. Are you guys familure with the 2007 escalade?

    So far I have not received any instructions relevant to my question. I have removed all of the essential parts with the exception of rotor. It is not coming out and it appears that it is still connected to the parking breaks. Can you please tell me what I need to do next? I need instructions with substance. So far I received instruction which are available on line at no cost. I was hoping for something with more detail and relevant to the vehicle in question Escalade 2007 rear rotors.

It would take me a long time to type and explain thoroughly how step by step to removed the rotor but will keep it simple as possible. Keep in mind all GM trucks is the same process. If you need additional help, go to any auto parts store and pick up Hayne's auto repair book and it will give you step by step with pictures and easy to understand, its a great investment to have for your next repair. Its not that hard, good tools to use if you can get a hold of one 3/4 or 1 inch drive sockets, it bigger and make the job much more efficient. You might need to find a steel hollow steel tube to fit the handle to your socket to break the main hub bolt loose to get the main rotor off using it as a leverage as breakers bar.
1 get the wheel of the ground
2 remove the wheels
3 Take off the all bolts holding calipers and pads
4 you may have to open you bleeding nipple valve from you caliper to reduce the pressure of the pad
in oder to removed the pad from the rotor.
5 do not disconnect the brake line, just move it to the side and out of the way
6 removed the center key pin from the main center hub bolt and remove the main center hub bolt.
the center hub bolt it on fairly tight, using a breaker bar may be necessary to use as leverage. Removing the rotor is not a hard task and long you have the tools. 30 minutes job removal. good luck..

HI, i must advise that Removing rear rotors on most any vehicle follows the same principles. There may be a few minor differences between makes and models; however, most variances occur with the caliper locations and how to compress the caliper pistons for re installation. Purchase a repair manual for your specific vehicle if you're considering performing repairs yourself to fully comprehend the correct procedure. Here are the most common Steps to achieve this goal.



Step 1

Park the vehicle on a level paved or concrete surface. Release the hood latch.

Step 2

Place a wheel chock in front of one front tire and open the hood. Locate the master cylinder and extract half the brake fluid from the reservoir using the turkey baster. Discard(Do not reuse).

Step 3

Break the lug nuts loose on the rear tires using the breaking bar and a socket.

Step 4

Lift one rear quarter panel with the floor jack and place a jack stand in a secure and safe location to support the vehicle(Level location is recommened). Use the rear frame rail if the vehicle has one, the rocker panel or even the rear axle if the vehicle has one are usually good locations. Repeat the same procedure for the other side and elevate the rear axle.

Step 5

Remove the lug nuts and wheels.

Step 6

Remove the caliper bolts using the ratchet and a socket.

Step 7

Pry the caliper off the rotor using a flathead screwdriver. In some applications, the pads are mounted to the calipers by clips, while in others the pads will remain in the caliper anchor. In either scenario, the piston of the caliper will most likely need to be compressed with a C-clamp or a caliper compression kit (which turns the piston of the caliper inward) and the pads removed.

Step 8

Remove the pads from the caliper or from the caliper anchor. Support the caliper to the vehicle with the bungee cord, and do not allow it to dangle from the brake hose.

Step 9

Remove the caliper anchor bolts using the ratchet and a socket. Remove the anchor.

Step 10

Remove any rotor retaining rings that might be located on the lug studs. These rings can be discarded and do not require being replaced. Also, take note if there are any screws present in the hub of the rotor that are securing it to the hub. If so, remove them with a screwdriver. If no rings or screws are present, skip this step.

Step 11

Remove the rotor. This may not be as easy as it sounds. Some rear rotors use the inside of their hubs as a makeshift drum for a small parking brake shoe. In these cases, the rotors may be caught on the shoe and will require being forced off. A slide hammer and adapter would help in this case, applying equal amounts of tenacity and caution.

Step 12

For stubbornly rusted-on rotors, hammer them off if you're replacing the rotors. But if you're not replacing them, use a heavy rubber mallet so you do not incur damage to the rotor.

Step 13

To replace, reverse the procedure. If you compressed the pistons of the calipers, you must pump the foot brake pedal to restore hydraulic pressure to the pistons before driving. After you've pumped the brake pedal, recheck and adjust the brake fluid level in the master cylinder, and add only new DOT-approved brake fluid specified for your vehicle.

Step 14

Torque the lug nuts to the wheels with the torque wrench following the correct torque specifications for your vehicle.

Programming 2nd key, 2007 escalade


The correct procedure is to put in the original key to the On posistion.
Remove and insert the second within 10 seconds. Turn to the On. Wait like 7 seconds. Then remove the key, reinsert to test.
The key (no pun intended) here is to wait for the security light to go out.

Put in your original key or the one the car already knows. Wait for the light to go out (the little car with the padlock) and then turn the key off, swap in the key you wish to program, then wait again for the security light to go out. You are done.
