Here is a step by step where someone has done this. He claims you need to find a bolt that matches the threaded rotor hole and thread it in until it breaks free.

Can't get the rear driver's side brake rotor off the hub. Took off caliper, shoes, no problem. Two retaining screws on front of rotor, off with a bit of effort, but now off. Emergency brake is released....


Try taking a large steel hammer and striking flat of rotor in between the lug bolts go around 3 or 4 times while use the other hand to apply outward off pressure it should pop off. By the way trow the rubber hammer away

I am trying to remove the front rotors on my daughters 2004 toy corolla. Iremoved the pads and callipers but now I can't get the nut off of the axle shaft to remove the rotors?


You do not have to remove the axel shaft bolt!!!!! Simply remove the caliper and its mount. Then all you need to do is cut off the retaining washer on one of the wheel studs. Then the disc will slide off. Tap lightly with a rubber mallet to break free any rust that might be cause the rotor to stick to the hub.

I can't get the rotors off due to the parking brake cable or clip. How do I remove that?


Hello! There isn't anything that would keep the rotor from coming off of the hub assembly other than the caliper assembly. Are you meaning to say that you're having a problem removing the caliper bracket and caliper?

How do you remove the front rotors. I changed my pads but not the rotors. I saw a screw in the rotor with a philip head. I tried using my philip screw driver but it wouldn't turn I was only going to strip...


your rotors are only held on by your brake calipar and wheel when its on..they get rusted on remove wheel break calipar and the rotor should come off use a rubber mallet and beat on rear side and itll pop off.

Can't get the damn rotor off 06 Hyundai Sonata


Depends somewhat if it's a front rotor or a rear rotor. The most common problem will be "corrosion" that's binding the two metal parts together. If you are not trying to reuse the rotor after turning (many are throwaways now adays) take a large hammer and bang the outer edge of the rotor. The vibration should cause the corrosion to break apart, and the rotor should pull away. If your planning on re-using the rotor after turning use a large rubber mallet.

The front rotors have about a 3/4 inch common surface between the rotor and the wheel hub. You may need to bang on the backside of the rotor as you slowly turn the rotor in order to cause the two parts to slide apart. It can be a slow process, but you should see some movement (but it must be even movement around the entire rotor. The back rotors have far less common surface and a few good waps should break the parts free.

I cannot get the back rotor off


Rear wheels are more suseptible to corrosion than are the front. A corrosion ring forms between the brake rotor and the wheel hub assembly. Use a large rubber mallet or a baby sledge to hit along the top edge of the rotor in order to break the corrosion ring. Some care may be needed if you are trying to re-use the rotor after they are turned down, otherwise you can hit the rotor much harder, and they should break free.

If not, apply some heat to the seam area between the rotor and hub. It will smoke, but do not get it red hot. Remove the heat and try using the hammer once again. Be careful not to grab the hot portion of the rotor when it breaks free.

Hard to get off rotors


there is no easy way to do this, soak the back and front center of the rotors with WD 40 overnight and then hit them repeatly with a plastic dead blow hammer from side to side and top to bottom and they will break free, be patient, don't get frustrated, easy for me to say huh?.

Cannot remove rear rotor


you can also spray a good amount of W-4 or any kind of rust solvent where the disc sits on the hub. Let it stay for a while make sure it is soaked, make sure the car is in Neutral not in park!! What you would want to do then is hammer with a 4LBS plastic mallet from the inside out of the rotor by rotating it in three to four different positions. Repeat this process a couple of times and it will come off. Make sure there is no locking washer on the wheel bolts, if so you will have to cut them off. Trust me i just changed mine two weeks ago and it worked fine!

Im trying to install a new rear hub assembly and cannot get the rotor off. Any sugestions.


Remove the rotors. Rusted rotors will most likely stick to the car due to the iron oxidizing and bonding to the mount of the wheel. If this happens, you are going to need a little force to remove the rotor from the wheel. With the car properly secured, get a single-hand sledge mallet (rubber preferably to protect the rotor). If you don’t have a rubber mallet, use a block of wood to absorb direct hits. Start at the top of the rotor and tap the edge of the rotor gently as you move clockwise around the rotor. Once loose, remove the rotor from the car.
