Cannot remove rear brake rotors
My 06 FX35 rear rotors were stuck - no amount of hammering away with a rubber mallet was helping. I read somewhere online about using the caliper mount and a bolt, washers and nuts to pop off the rotor, so I went back to the auto store and picked up a M8 40 mm long bolt and a matching nut, stuck that through the top caliper mounting bolt (where the big 19mm bolt was) and screwed the nut on the other side and started to tighten - as I tightened, the bolt started pushing against the rotor until "POP!" - simple success. 2 hours to get the driver rear rotor replaced, then 30 minutes for the passenger one once I mastered this little process. Be sure e-brake is not an, doesn't matter if the fx is in park or neutral to get the rotors off. This isn't a good idea of you're not replacing the rotor, since it'll likely take on a little damage.
