After you remove the caliper assembly, the rotor just slides off. Sometimes rust builds up around the hole in the middle of the rotor where it fits on the hub and you have to spray a little lube around it and tap from behind with a hammer. On rare occasions I've had to heat the rotor with a torch to expand the center enough for it to free up. Usually a good whack with a hammer will release it.

Rotors keep warping

Could be a number of problems. Here are a few.

Defective Brake Pads
  • Brake pads that are defective and/or incorrectly installed can, over time, cause brake rotors to warp and become damaged. Brake pads are responsible for squeezing against the spinning brake rotor, an action that causes a vehicle to slow down or stop. If the brake pads are bent, misshapen in any way, or aligned and/or installed abnormally, they can exert abnormal pressure on the brake rotors, a condition that can cause brake rotor warpage over time.

  • Abnormal Brake Caliper Action
  • An abnormal or malfunctioning brake caliper can result in brake rotor warpage if the degree of brake caliper dysfunction is severe enough. A brake caliper houses a set of vehicle brake pads and provides the squeezing force necessary to squeeze the brake pads against the spinning brake rotor. If a brake caliper applies too much pressure to the brake pads, or if it applies pressure inconsistently, it can cause a brake rotor to warp over time. Adequate brake caliper action is necessary for optimizing brake pad and brake rotor function.

  • Excessive Heat
  • A vehicle's braking system generates a tremendous amount of friction-related heat, heat that normally gets radiated away from the brake pads and brake rotor mechanisms. However, in cases where excessive heat is generated within a braking system and not dispersed adequately, serious brake malfunctions can occur, which can include brake rotor warpage. A stuck brake caliper, old, worn-down brake pads, or a defective brake rotor can cause excessive heat to develop in or around a brake rotor, which can cause brake rotor damage and warpage.

  • Damanged Wheel Hub Spindle
  • A brake rotor assembly is supported by and rides on a long, slender metal tube called a hub, or wheel hub assembly. The hub is what allows for the smooth, even circular motion of the spinning brake rotor. Designed with a smooth, low-friction exterior, the wheel hub assembly is critical to the proper spinning motion of the brake rotor. Any abnormalities or defects with the wheel hub assembly, including hub warpage, cracking or misalignment, can cause abnormal brake rotor rotation, which in turn can cause brake rotor warpage over time. Normally, a damaged wheel hub assembly is noticed and remedied prior to extensive brake rotor damage, as a severely damaged wheel hub assembly will cause a vehicle tire to wobble and shake.

    I have a 2007 jeep wrangler. I'm replacing brakes and rotors. The rear rotors are disc brake with internal drum and shoes for park brake. The rotor is free from the axle but catches on park brake shoes...

    try removing the pads and the piston may have a cross or a slot
    it will to tough to start with but screw that piston back into the calliper housing
    that should bring the shoes back in far enough to get the rotor off

    How to replace 99 gmc 3/4 tom brake rotors

    Removal & Installation
    1. Remove 2/3of the brake fluid from the master cylinder.
    2. Raise and support the vehicle.
    3. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
    4. Remove the front wheel hub extension (dual wheel vehicles only).
      • Insert a drift or large screwdriver through the brake caliper into one of the brake rotor vanes in order to prevent the rotor from turning.
      • Mark the relationship of the front wheel hub extension to the hub
      • Remove the front wheel hub extension bolts
      • Remove the front wheel hub extension from the vehicle. It may be necessary to tap around the perimeter of the hub extension with a rubber mallet to loosen it from the hub
    5. Mark the relationship of the rotor to the hub.
    6. Remove the caliper and mounting bracket as an assembly.
    7. Hang the caliper and the mounting bracket assembly from the suspension using mechanics wire.
    8. Remove the rotor.
    9. If the rotor is difficult to remove due to corrosion in the hub area use the following procedure to remove the rotor (25 series only).
      • Clean all the surface areas and the threaded holes of contamination
      • Generously apply penetrating oil or the equivalent to the hub/rotor area
      • Insert (2) M10 x 1.5 bolts (jack screws) into the threaded holes of the rotor
      • Tighten both bolts evenly to force the rotor from the hub.
    To install:
    1. Clean all rust and contaminants from the both side of the rotor and the hub flange.
      NOTE If the rotor was removed using the jack screw method you must ensure that the hub flange is free of nicks or marks caused by this procedure. Remove all raised nicks or marks before installing the rotor.

    2. Install the rotor.
    3. Install the caliper and the mounting bracket as an assembly.
    4. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
    5. Remove the safety stands.
    6. Lower the vehicle.

    How do you remove the front passenger hub on a 98 escort. I wrenched on the nut, but it won't loosen

    1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
    3. Unfasten the disc brake caliper retaining bolts.
    4. Remove the disc brake caliper and secure the caliper aside with mechanic's wire. Do not disconnect the brake hose.
    5. Pull the brake rotor from the hub.
    6. Inspect the rotor and refinish or replace, as necessary. If refinishing, the minimum thickness rotor thickness is stamped on the brake rotor.
    7. To install:
    8. Place the brake rotor to the hub. Make sure the mating surfaces are free of rust which may prevent the brake rotor from seating properly.
    9. Remove the mechanic's wire and position the brake caliper.
    10. Install the brake caliper retaining bolts to specification.
    11. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
    12. Lower the vehicle.
    13. Pump the brake pedal several times to position the brake pads before moving the vehicle.
    14. Road test the vehicle and check the brake system for proper operation.
    It sounds like your hub/rotor is froze'll need to apply some penetrant in the lug stud areas as wells as the area where the rotor mates to the axle hub.

    What holds the front brake rotor on, on a 2007 Jeep Cherokee? I have the bolts off from the caliper.

    If the braket for the caliper is not obstructing the rotor and the rotor doesn't have retaining screws in between the studs then rust is what's holding your rotor on. rust builds up between the hub and the rotor hat. a good whack with a hammer will free it up, or a prybar. rotate the rotor as you work it back and forth. saftey glasses are a must. becarfull not to damage the studs too.

    Front brake rotor removal and replacement

    First you have to remove the caliper and then the wheel bearing. If you don't know how to do that, I can provide details for that too. After the caliper and wheel bearings are off, the hub and disk will slip off the spindle. I believe the hub and the disk on the 2007 are separable. Call a brake service center, they can sell you the parts or refer you to a local distributor.

    Dodge Magnum Brake Rotor

    You need to back off the hidden emergency brake shoes that contact the interior part of the rotor. Remove the rubber plug on the inside and rear part of the hub and use a screwdriver to back off the star wheel adjuster. Unless you do this, you'll never get the rotors off.
    Hint: the secondary drum type emergency/parking brake shoes may need replacement
