You have to remove the brake caliper (2 bolts) and then the brake caliper bracket (also 2 bolts) and then you should be able to tap on the inside edge of the rotor to loosen it up and it will come right off. Heat and rust make them stick so give it some pops and you'll be good to go.

Do i need to remove the locking nut in the middle of the rotor (fronts) to remove the entire rotor 2006 ford f150


I'm taking for granted that the truck is 4wd.. No, just remove the caliper and anchor plate and remove the rotor. sometimes they are really stuck on there, I have had to use a good rust buster like JB80 and a heavy composite mallet

2wd or 4wd? The 4wd requires a special socket you should be able to borrow from the parts store.

How remove front rotors?


Remove the brake caliper. then pop off the dust cap on the hub. Take out the cotter pin and unscrew the big nut. It should come off then. The wheel bearing need to be removed to take off the rotors. This is assuming the truck is 2 wheel drive. If it's 4WD, then the hubs have to be removed to get the rotors off.

Cant remove the rotor and retainer clip


You will need a large bearing retaining nut socket (1-in drive) about 2 7/16th in or 61/62mm (I got mine at NAPA with a 1/2 in to 1-in drive converter) BUT BEFORE loosening the nut there is a small keeper under the bottom edge the nut at the top (12-oclock) position of the nut. Use a magnet to retrac this and then loosen the large bearing nut. You sometimes have to slightly move the nut "a hair" left or right to remove this bearing keeper. Once the keeper is out the nut will easily come off. The rest is easy. Good Luck!

How do I change the rotors on a 1996 F250 4wd truck?


CHANGING BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS
Changing the brake pads is pretty easy, after you remove the tire locate the two large bolts on the back side of the caliper i think they are 13/16 heads. remove these two bolts. after the bolts are out use a pry bar to work the caliper straight up off the rotor, slide the pads out of the caliper and compress the piston in the caliper, this can be done with a large c-clamp if you dont have a piston compressor (use the old brake pad as a buffer so you dont damage the piston).
4x2 remove the dust cap in the center of the hub use a pair of dikes to straighten and remove the cotter pin thats locks the castle nut in place then remove the castle nut (can be done with channellocks if you dont have large enough socket) slide the hub off the spindle careful not to drop the bearing and washer on the ground. *** put the lug nuts back on the studs up side down and flush them to the end of the stud if you still hve the stock open lug nuts if not then just be sure to hit the studs square so you dont damage the threads. place the hub on hard solid ground rotor side down and knock the studs out with a fairly good size hammer. reverse process to assemble
4x4 this is a little more difficult than 4x2 you will need some specialty tools (torqs, picks, snap ring pliers, and a 2 3/4 inch rounded hex socket) these instructions are for a stock ford automatic hub. remove the outer hub (three small torqs bolts). use a small to medium straight screwdriver to remove the first locking ring (inside lock) slide the inner hub assembly out of the hub. remove the outside snap ring from the axle shaft slide the three washers of of the shaft keeping them in order. there will be a small half circle keeper on the large nut remove this with a pick use the 2 3/4 socket to remove the hub nut slide the hub off the spindle careful not to drop the bearing and washer on the ground then follow the 4x2 instructions.

Is there a rotor keeper removal tool? I was told


no, just get a pair of needle nose pliers. It should just be a lock washer on th stud. just pull the it off and discard it. They are much cheaper to replace than buying a special tool. you will then need to place a small block of wood on the back side of the rotor to keep from damaging and beat it off with a hammer. If you are replacing them instead of turning them you dont need the wood, just grab a hammer and fire away and then just recycle them.and make a buck or two.
