Anybody have any ideas on how to remove stuck front rotors on an 07 Accord? Heavy corrosion from NE PA salt soaked winters.


There are two threaded holes at 90 degrees to the retaining screws heat them (the retaining screws) to nearly red but don't melt them let them cool down naturally remove with an impact driver or drill them out
smack the rotor a few times with a hammer
insert 12mm bolts in the threaded holes and pull of the rotor by turning the bolts

How to take back rotors off a 1994 honda civic.


PATH: Brakes > Front Disc Brakes > Brake Disc (Rotor) > Removal & Installation Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and support the front of the vehicle on jackstands. Remove the front wheels.
  2. Remove the caliper assembly; do not let the caliper assembly hang by the brake hose, instead support it with a piece of wire looped around the front spring or control arm.
  3. Remove the retaining screw from the brake rotor and remove the rotor from the hub.

An impact driver, No. 3 phillips screwdriver bit, and a hammer may be needed to remove the retaining screw. It is fairly easy to destroy the screw slots using an ordinary phillips screwdriver to remove the tightly driven screw (see photo).

  1. To install the disc, replace the disc on the hub, screw in the retaining screw and replace the caliper assembly.

PATH: Brakes > Rear Disc Brakes > Brake Disc (Rotor) > Removal & Installation Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Disconnect the caliper from the caliper bracket. Support the caliper out of the way with a length of wire. Do not allow the caliper to hang from the brake hose.
  4. Remove the caliper bracket.
  5. Remove the two 6mm screws and the brake disc. If the brake disc is difficult to remove, install two 8mm bolts into the threaded holes and tighten them evenly to prevent cocking the rotor.
  6. Install the rotor in position. Install the two 6mm retaining screws.
  7. Install the brake caliper. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

Hello. I am replacing the front disc brake rotors


there is probably alot of rust on the hub that is 'holding' your rotors on the hub. The slotted holes are for inserting 2 bolts in and trying to press the rotor off the hub assembly. If you can't get bolts in the threaded holes then move on to a big hammer and beat the rotor on the backside and rotate the rotor to get it off evenly or you'll just wedge it on. thats about all you can do at this point! BUT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE NEW ROTORS FIRST AND THAT THERE CORRECT FOR YOUR VEHICLE BEFORE DAMAGING THE EXISTING ROTORS!!!!

1998 Honda Odyssey, I can't get the front brake rotors off. What is the trick? I tried removing the two phillips head screws which just stripped so I drilled them. Then I used #8 screws in the two...


The m8x1.25 that thread into the rotor act like a "puller". Insert both bolts and turn them each 1 turn at a time until the rotor comes off. They can be stubborn some times.

1999sebring crysler lxi having problem getting rotors off and it will not come off of hub tryed useing bolts to but threaded holes bu7t still did not come off what do i do next?


I personally have a 4 LBS hammer that i use sometimes the rotors have to be really hit hard with a hammer on the front brake surface to come loose they will come off but sometimes i have split them in to.So if you have a big hammer that will do the trick :)

There is a brake adjustment tool that you can use to back the brake off, or continue to beat it with a 5lb steel hammer

Rear roters won't come off like front did.


If I am correct, the parking brake is part of this rotor also. The inside of the rotor is shaped like a drum brake hub, so the parking brake shoes can expand, and push against the drum shape. (Just like a Corvette)

You may want to adjust the parking brake shoes in, for easier removal.
To do this, there is an adjustment hole knockout panel, or access plug you remove.

(Adjustment Hole Knockout Panel. Fancy name for an oblong piece of metal, that has been cut into the brake backing plate, but not cut all the way through. You take a punch, and hammer, and hit the side end of this 'Knockout Panel'. When it twists, grab the end with a pair of vise grips, work it back and forth, and it will break out. You will then need to buy the rubbery access plugs to fill this hole)

With the adjustment hole open you will see a star wheel. Just like on drum brakes. Use a brake spoon. (Brake adjustment wrench) You'll have to experiment, with which way to turn this star wheel, to slack the parking brake shoes away, from the drum shape in the rotor. One side should be left handed thread, the other side is right handed thread.

Still won't budge? More penetrating oil, (WD-40 is NO GOOD for this!), and use a rubber mallet, or similar type hammer from the inside of the vehicle, hitting out.

(Jack Stands, Wheel Chocks, Eye Protection! Have someone nearby watching, in case the vehicle starts to slip off, and can grab you, or at least warn you. Thank you for letting me say this, I feel better!)

Can not get the rotors off my 97 hyundai tibaron


Hyundai Tiburon 96-01 uses a outer hub system. To replace front rotors. You'll need front bearings as well. The bearing and hub will need to be pressed out of the spindal. Then replacement of bearing will need to be pressed in. From a shop.Or they can use a slide hammer to remove ,but damages the bearing. Best to buy bearing and have cash for an alignment job too.Then replace front rotors. Rotor and hub install is ez after you get bearing pressed.Rear rotor and bearing are bolt on though.

Removing front rotors!!!


can't remove them from axle, the brake rotors are resurfaced by a portable machine that rolls up under the truck to get to the rotors, axle and rotor are one piece!
