I would try some WD-40 on the bolts. Also, you can try heating up around where the bolt goes into. Where the brake pads and calipers go should be very clean and lubricated.

How to replace Front brakes 2010 Dodge journey?


Hi Steve, I'm glad to help. First, take of the front wheel's. Then press the calipers inward, this will make it easier to remove the calipers. Next, remove the calipers with the old pads. PUSH the calipers all the way back and install the new pads. There are only 2 bolts holding a single caliper. NEXT, If you plan to replace the rotors. NOTE: Which I recommend. You'll need to remove the bracket that holds the caliper, there is only 2 bolts holding it to the spindle. NEXT, Remove the rotor and relace with new rotors. Note: sometimes the original rotors are stuck because of rust you'll need to tab them off with a hammer. After installing the new rotors, it helps to put one nut on to hold the rotor in-place. Then re-install the bracket, the caliper and thighten the bolts. CAUTION: DO NOT try to drive the vehicle until pumping the brakes and they are very firm. Install the wheels and your good to go. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Steve!

Replace front brakes and rotors


first take off wheels, then check if it is a star screw or a normal bolt, then remove the bottom bolt, remove the top bolt, and take the caliper off to access the pads and to remove the rotors, then back together the way it came apart with some anti seize on the face and bolts. Sometimes you have to pound the old rotors off...

Remove front brake rotors on a 2001 vw beetle


There are two different types of calipers used on 01 Beetles.
The first which does not have a detachable caliper bracket is easiest and is as follows:
Remove front wheels
Unbolt calipers from integrated spindle/bracket with proper allen bit and lift calipers and pads and support them.
Remove set screw holding rotor to hub. You may need an impact screwdriver as these seize up with age.
Slide rotor off hub.

The second has a separate detachable bracket that wraps around the rotor.
Remove the front wheels
Remove two caliper bracket bolts holding bracket, caliper and pads onto rotor as a unit.
Some vehicles have a standard bolt in this position, some have a VW special star bolt, so inspect to see if you are equipped to remove these. If you have the star bolts and do not have the proper tool, you need to get it... attempting to use the wrong tool will not end well.
Use a philips screwdriver to remove the set screw holding the rotor to the hub. You may need an impact screwdriver as these screws seize up with age.
Slide rotor off the hub.

2001 ram 2500 how to remove the wheel hub assembly


Remove tire. Remove caliper and caliper holder. Remove rotor. Using a 36 MM socket remove center nut and slide hub off spindle. If hub does not come off freely use wheel puller to remove hub.Loosen front wheel lug nuts. Jack up and support front of truck with jack stands ( put them in the middle so both you can get to both sides of the truck). Remove tire, Remove caliper and caliper holder. romove rotor ( I had to use a 2x4 wedged between rotor and lower controll arm rubber stoper. then started truck and turned the wheel right or left to pop rotor free). remove 3 bolts that hold hub to knuckle. on the next step I used a steel pipe about 1 1/2 foot i think about 2 inches in diamater. wedge it between lower controll arm rubber stoper. then start truck turn the wheel left or right to let power steering pump do the work. It poped it off easy for me both sides in less than 1 hour. put alot of anti seize on the new hubs and bolts in case you have to replace them again. use a torque wrench to tighten all bolts. Great time to replace brakes as long as you are in the area. hope this helps.

T would like to know the steps to remove the front rotors.


You can try a couple of things. First the most common is try spraying it with something like WD40 or get a breaker bar which will give you more power to turn it and will add alot more tension so the bolt will break loose. Could be that the heat seized it there but try these steps.
