    Is this a 4WD or 2WD? In any event, are there some small clips around the lugs: Sometimes vehicles will have small copper colored clips that retain the rotors on during the manufacturing and shipping processes. These are thin metal pieces, kind of look like a star-style locking washer. They can be removed and discarded. Be a little surprised they are still present on a 14 year old vehicle. If not, I'd have to say just try a little harder to remove the rotor. May just be too many miles for it to come off easily.

Front wheel bearing replace 4x4

It's pretty simple. -Remove the tire -Install a punch into the fins of the rotor. Rotate the rotor counterclockwise until the punch hits the caliper and remove the axle nut. - I like to remove the outer tie rod end from the knuckle. This makes it easier to get at the caliper bracket bolts and the wheel hub bolts - remove the caliper and the rotor - unplug the abs harness - remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. - remove the hub/bearing from the knuckle. The hub may be corroded and frozen a little to the knuckle. Sometimes it can take a bit of hammering to get them to pop. Also make sure you torque the axle nut to the correct torque spec. Failure to do this will causing the bearing to fail early! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Wheel bearing out on steering axle, 1500 ext cab silverado '03 What do I have to remove or detach to get to the inside bearing?

I'm almost positive that you will find the inner bearing in the back of the brake rotor behind an oil seal. replace the oil seal when you do the bearing. Remove the brake caliper and the center axle nut and the rotor will literally fall off. Hope this helps.

Need to change a front wheel it hard to do myself?

moz-screenshot-2.png-Jack up the car
-remove the tire, 19mm socket
-remove the brake caliper, its either an 18mm or 15mm socket that will remove the bracket bolts.
-remove the rotor
-remove the axle nut, its either a 34 or 36 mm
-unplug ABS sensor connector if equipped
-remove the three bolts that hold the bearing/hub assembly to the knuckle, a 13mm socket will work
Remove the wheel bearing.

It is important to tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to do so will cause the new bearing to fail. you will need a 1/2" torque wrench for this.

To make removing and installing the axle nut easier place a punch in the fins of the rotor and rotate the rotor until the punch rests on the caliper (it doesn't hurt to put a couple lug nuts on to hold the caliper tight to the hub). This will hold the hub in place while you looses and tighten the axle nut.

How to get front rotors off and r they nock offs or do i have to take a nut off? 2000 chevy silverado 2wd

mcdevito75 here, They should be knockoffs, That castle nut is holding the hub / Bearing assembly to the axle, and once removed that nut has to be replaced with a new one, so it"s not reasonable that nut has to come off to get the rotors off. Try, remove the tire and lift the caliper assembly off the rotor, use penetrating oil, liquid wrench, W D 40 around the lugs as they may be part of the rotor assembly, Then with a hammer tap moderately around the edge of the rotor to loosen it, keep the gear in Neautrel so you can turn the rotor while tapping with the hammer and use that penetrating oil around the lug studs and around the hub. The rotor should fit around the hub where that nut is and thru the lug studs that hold the tire on the axle.

95 Suburban K2500 front brake rotor replacement

On the heavy-duty models like this one (and mine) the rotors are indeed pressed on. The whole assembly comes off via four bolts on the inside of the assembly. Look in a Chilton's or Hayne's at your local auto parts store to see it with pictures.

Do not just hammer away as the previous ignoramus suggested. They'll never come off and you'll just end up breaking something.
