Im not an expert but Ive changed the rotors on my 96 Dodge ram 1500 4X4 a couple of times (Im real hard on brakes) and as soon as I take off the caliper the rotor slides right off. Ive had problems with the rear drums coming off but the rotors should slip right off.

Instructions on replace wheel bearing on 2005 f150 2wd front wheel


Johny brown is wrong.... the 2005 ford f150 2wd requires a rotor/bearing assembly it is really really easy to change...... jack it up remove wheel, 18 mm wrench to remove caliper mount... then remove spindle cotterpin and nylon nut (26mm? ) with any luck the rotor/bearing /hub will pull right off ...if not a make shift lever/puller should do the trick.... I actually had a bearing frozen on the spindle that i used heat and a small 3 jaw puller to get the bearing free.... if everything goes smoothly you should be done in less then 30 min

Cv shaft replace


This is usually the same on all front wheel drive cars..

Remove the wheel

Remove the brake caliper

Remove the brake rotor

Remove the spindle nut

Remove the wheel bearing assembly (usually 3 bolts)

-The next step may be optional, depends on the car-
Unbolt the lower ball joint (under the A-frame, some are riveted, if so, drill them out and chisel or just chisel them off with a metal chisel, sometimes you can cut the rivet heads off with a sawzall then pry it apart from the a-frame)

Pull the wheel bearing assembly from the spindle of the CV half shaft.
(Sometimes you need a wheel puller)

Once its loose, all you have to do it yank it out, and push the new one in. Make sure the new one pops in and is seated firmly.

Reverse steps for re-assembly. If you took the ball joint loose and it was riveted, use hardened steel bolts and nuts with lock washers to replace it, or buy a new ball joint, they aren't that expensive and it will come with bolts.

Good luck

How do I change the front cv axle on a 1987 plymouth sundance?


Remove the wheel, the brake caliper, and the brake rotor.

Remove the large spindle nut that comes through the center of the wheel bearing assembly.

Remove the bolts (usually 3 or four) holding the wheel bearing assembly on. You can access them usually through holes that are in the spinning part of the wheel bearing assembly in between where the lug nut studs come through)

Sometimes you need a wheel puller to get it off ones the bolts are out, but not always. They can be a chore. My advice is to rent the wheel puller from auto zone.

the CV half shaft should be loose now, just yank it out.. pop the new one in making sure that it seats completely and firmly.. then reverse the order to put it all back together, and done.

Good luck

How to i remove rotors off of a 1991crown victoria


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the caliper from the spindle and rotor, but do not disconnect the brake hose. Suspend the caliper inside the fender housing with a length of wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose.
  4. Remove the grease cap from the hub and remove the cotter pin, nut retainer and adjusting nut.
  5. Grasp the hub/rotor assembly and pull it out far enough to loosen the washer and outer wheel bearing. Push the hub/rotor assembly back onto the spindle and remove the washer and outer wheel bearing.
  6. Remove the hub/rotor assembly from the spindle.
  7. Inspect the rotor for scoring and wear. Replace or machine as necessary. If machining, observe the minimum thickness specification.

  1. If the rotor is being replaced, remove the protective coating from the new rotor with brake cleaner. Pack a new set of bearings with high-temperature wheel bearing grease and install the inner roller bearing in the inner cup. Pack grease lightly between the lips of a new seal and install the seal, using a seal installer.
  2. If the original rotor is being installed, make sure the grease in the hub is clean and adequate, the inner bearing and grease seal are lubricated and in good condition, and the rotor braking surfaces are clean.
  3. Install the hub/rotor assembly on the spindle. Keep the assembly centered on the spindle to prevent damage to the grease seal or spindle threads.
  4. Install the outer wheel bearing, washer and adjusting nut. Adjust the wheel bearings according to the procedure in , then install the nut retainer, cotter pin and grease cap.

Cannot get front hub assembly to come off. caliper and rotor are removed, spindle nut and cotter pin removed, still will not budge, even with a puller.


These things always stick. Here's my trick to get them off. Get 4 more bolts with the same thread, but much longer. Screw them into the holes, start the engine (DON'T TOUCH THE BRAKE PEDAL), and turn the wheel back and forth. As you get all the way to one side the longer bolts will hit the axle housing and push the hub/bearing assembly out of the knuckle. Snap on also mahes a special tool for this that does the same thing, but uses the factory bolts. There's probably 20 different ways you can rig something up that will work off the same principle. You're gonna have to get creative if you wanna drive it this week.
