Rotor removal on xl7


Front disc rotors? (not rear brake top hat rotor)
are you asking for all steps in the FSM. for this?
can I assume you've done other cars? or is this a first time ever thing.
?
wheel off, caliper off. hanging there with coat hanger. or tie wrap.
there before you, is a rotor mounted to a hub.
on mine there are 2 , M8 (8mm) holes there, threaded
in the FSM it shows that you put 2 bolts there and spin them down
and use the to force the rotor off the bearing hub.
the drums on Suz. do same deal.
read the day pass.? for 4 bucks.????

here is the drum , getting 8mm action. the rotors work the same way and for the same reason.

Brake rotor and front or rear?

Okay, remove the wheel then remove the brake caliper and move to side do not allow to hang on the brake hose, use a hook to hang off spring or set aside. next remove the caliper bracket, two bolts at rear of bracket to remove it.
next you will use a hammer to remove the rotor.

NOTE: the way the brake rotor was designed was a bad one the hub in which the rotor slides over and the wheel studs slide into holes on the rotor is bad the hub diameter is almost the same size as the diameter of the seat of the rotor that slide over the hub and what happens is sometimes the rust build up on the rotor seat locks the brake rotor on the hub. i do not know if you are reusing the rotors or replacing them, no sure what job you are doing . the rotors to take off you will need to tap on the rear of them with a little force and turn, hit and turn. you will need to see if they break free or if hard beating and spraying into the rear of them is needed with wd40.
Alot of these rotors also have two threaded hole on the face of the rotor near the studs so that you can screw two bolts into holes to help pull them. use wire to tie caliper up and also use a c-clamp to push piston into calipe to remove caliper if needed, Do not remove brake hose, there is no need to open system, here is a picture of the rotor coming of the hub, also there may be clips on the stud holding rotor on remove them use cutters or pry off do not need to reuse , they are to help in holding the rotor on during asm, if you want you can buy them and reinstall them but never reuse them.12_25_2012_5_41_09_pm.png

How to remove front brake rotor of a 2004 toyota highlander


these have what is known as a knock off rotor.

There should be two threaded holes in the hat of the rotor. A 8x1.25 bolt will thread into the holes. Use the bolts to press the rotor off of the hub.

If you are not reusing the rotors you can forcefully hit them from the backside and eventually they will pop loose.

If you have any questions let me know. Thank you for using fixya.com!

I trying to figure out how to remove the front brake rotor of a 2000 kia sportage. All the brake parts have been removed. I have opened the cap but it looks like it is crimped so that it can not be...


The dust cap does not have to be removed and the hub nut is secured with a cotter pin, and the two other holes should be two 8 mm fine thread bolt holes across from each other on the brake rotor that are not used to pull the rotor off, but instead are used to screw two bolts into those holes and then use a ratchet or wrench to tighten the bolts down and push the rotor off of the hub.

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.

  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!!!!

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.
c3692a2.gif
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.

Changing brakes and rotors on 1996 grand cherokee


Have recently done brakes on a couple of cars, including a jeep, 1995. I soaked the parts with PB Blaster, or any other wd 40 type spray. The parts are quite corroded when they are this age. Had to change rotors, on front.Some models have a threaded hole to help remove rotors.You tighten a proper size bolt on the trreaded hole and turn it in. All this did was break the rotor. If rotors are bad, you may have to remove these with a hammer, Have new ones handy, or you may get lucky and get these off. Then you can take them to a shop to have them turned down, as long as there is enough material left to safely turn them down. The rest of the front is not to hard. You remove the covers from the master cylinder. Then you use a c clamp to retract the hydraulic pistons.Before you remove the two bolts to remove the calipers, make sur you don't let them hang by the brake cables. Most braking is done with the front brakes. If you remove the rear, do only one at a time. This way you can see the other side . remove both drums. I only do one side at a time so I can see how it all goes back together, it's just reversed. lbreen

Trying to remove and replace rear brake rotors


First, make sure your parking brake is off.
Remove the rear caliper and then the brake pad housing. In the center hub of the rotor the parking brake shoes are located. The may need to be loosen first. There is a hole between 2 of the studs you need to align at the bottom. Look in the hole with a flashlight and find the star wheel. Use a screw driver to turn the wheel up a few turns to loosen the parking brake shoes from the rotor hub.
After that there are 2 threaded holes in the rotor near the studs you put two 8mm bolts in and slowly tighten each and it will pull the rotor off the hub. They rust up pretty bad so use penetrating oil on them.
