The rotors are often rusted onto the wheel hubs and will stoutly refuse to come off. If they are rusted enough to be in this condition we always replace them with new. BE CERTAIN to thoroughly clean off all the rust and scale from the hub and around the wheel studs so your new rotors mount perfectly flat on the hub or you can end up with a brake shudder when you apply the brakes. I assume you are replacing both the brake pads and the rotors? If so make sure you assemble everything correctly, securely tighten all the hardware, don't put a twist in the brake hose, and give it a final test drive before you head out into traffic. Safety first!

Brake rotor removal


you shouldn't need any special tool all you have to do is remove the caliper assembly of the rotor and the rotor should come right off. If not then the rotor should come off if a there is a nut holding it on there

To remove a front axle shaft 94 ford ranger remove rotor, and hub. anything else?


you shouldn't have to remove anything else, unless it is in your way, one end of the shaft should just come out of the spindle, after you beat it with a hammer...lol, but seriously, and then the other side you need a special tool it is a 2 prong fork, to pry between the tranny and the shaft, and that should get it out.

How do i remove the front rotors on a 2003 4x4 navigator. iremoved the calipars but the rotors will not come off. I there anything else holding them on the vehicle?


Proabably a large nut that goes through the center of the rotor to attach it to the axle. Are the studs for mounting the rims part of the rotor? If so, this is probably your best bet (you'll probably have to specially purchase this socket because it's going to be a 22+mm).

Front brake rotor removal


Your rotors have an integrated hub with serviceable bearing.

Remove the six bolts around the center of the hub and pry off the grease cover.

behind it you will find a locking wheel with two philips screws holding it in position. Remove the screws and unscrew the locking wheel.

Behind is a large axle locknut that requires a special tool to remove. It has two small holes to grip with. Unscrew it and you will be able to remove the outer bearing, then slide the rotor off the spindle/axle.

From there you can unbolt the rotor disc from the hub backside, or replace the whole unit. Replacing the whole unit will require installing new bearings/races, however.

Either method will require repacking the bearings and loading the bearings with the special locknut tool.

The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.
