If there are two small srews going through the rotor then its probably froze to the hub. smack it pretty hard from the back with a baby sledge in see if she budges. i know some cars have captured rotors which require u to remove the steering knuckle from the car. the replacement rotors should tell u and if not the guy selling them to u should know if theyre hat style or captured. chances are they're just rusty as hell and u may have to beat them off every step of the way. hope this is helpful. air hammer helps sometimes too.

Removing front brake rotors, removed caliper, n center nut to pull off rotor but wouldnt remove,is there something i am missing?


U Shouldnt have to remove the "center nut," that's the nut that holds the drive shaft in. I hope you have a book as it is set to a specific torq. Now sometimes depending how old the rotors are you might find it helpful to knock around the edges with a hammer. If your reusing use a rubber mallet. But your tacking them off so I'm guessing your replacing. So beat em off. There just stuck on. Also you might have to remove the caliper mount bracket. Not to sure if 06 has this. But the rotor has to slip on and off straight and a caliper mount bracket can keep you from doing this. good luck!

Kia rotor


Slightly loosen tire lug nuts, raise car with jack, remove lug nuts and wheel, remove caliper bolts from brake calipers. Open cap on brake fluid reservoir, place folded towel over top of reservoir and set cap on the paper towel to hold it in place, use a large 9-inch C-clamp to squeez in on front brake pad about 1/8 inch. REmove caliper from rotor. Hang caliper from shock coils with strong bungie strap so there is no pressure on the brake line. Remove bolts from caliper plate and remove caliper plate. Using oversized phillips screwdriver end attached to a 3/8 inch flex wrench, you will carefully put light pressure in a counter-clockwise direction to remove the brass screws and tap the flex wrench at the same time with a large 3-pound hammer driving the screwdriver end into the top of the screw as you put more pressure on the wrench to loosen the screw. This is about the only way to remove brass screws without "damaging them" and they are a dealer item not found in parts store. There should be two screws holding the rotor on. Then spray liquid wrench or penetrating oil into all holes on rotor toward center to help dissolve rust. Wait three minutes then tap rear of rotor lightly with large hammer taking care NOT to hit the thin metal rotor shield. Eventually, this tapping force will loosen the rotor. Use same technique of tapping the flex wrench when applying pressure to wrench to tighten the brass screws when replacing the rotors.

I Can't get front rotors off my 2006 Toyota Camry.


On most camries you need to remove the wheels, then brake pads, and the calipers. Most camries do not use any screws to hold the rotors, thus when you remove the calipers you should be able to remove rotors without problems.

How do you replace front bearing assembly on 2000 f-150


After you get the wheel off; remove brake calipers...do not allow them to hang down - you'll damage the brake lines!

Remove the grease cover at the center of the rotor with a flat blade screw driver. Remove the castle pin and nut, then the rotor should slide off the spindle with very little effort.

To remove the bearing raceways...clean the grease out of the center of the rotor...so you can see what you're doing. Place rotor on a solid bench/cement pad, so you can get a flat chissel/large screw driver to the inside of the rotor...pound the raceway out, working around the rotor in a circle - the raceway needs to come out evenly to avoid damage to the rotor. If you can't get the raceways out - take the rotor to a machine shop that can do it for you (sometimes the auto parts store will help...if there're not busy).

GOES BACK TOGETHER IN REVERSE ORDER:

The best thing to do is get pre-packed bearings, new castle pins and a tub of axle grease.

Remember, put about 1/2 cup/palm full of grease into the center of rotor prior to re-assembly. Also, don't over tighten the wheel...put the castle nut on and finger tighten. slightly tighten with a wrench...ensure the rotor turns freely - must be snug and slight resistance should be noticed. Don't forget the new castle pin.

Hope this helps,
Mike...

How do you replace the front rotors on an 1999 Chevy express van 1500?


REMEMBER TO REPLACE THE PADS AS WELL, NO USED PADS ON NEW ROTORS.

Raise the vehicle and support on jack stands. Remove the wheels. Place the drip pan under the caliper. Loosen the 10 mm bleeder screw on the top of the caliper.
  • Step 2 Spread the brake pads apart with the common screwdriver. Place the screwdriver in the slot in the center of the caliper where the pads can be seen. With the nose of the screwdriver, pry between the rotor and the pad and pull the caliper outward toward you. The piston is being depressed into its housing as the caliper is pulled out. When the caliper comes to its limit outward, push the caliper back away from you and insert the screwdriver into the inside pad between the pad and the rotor. Once again pull the screwdriver toward you until the caliper piston is compressed into its bore.
  • Step 3 Tighten the 10 mm bleeder screw. Remove the caliper and support it where it is not hanging on the brake hose. Letting the caliper hang on the brake hose will damage the hose and cause brake failure.
  • Step 4 Remove the caliper support if it interferes with the removal of the rotor. Some vehicles don't require the removal of the support. Remove the rotor by pulling it off. If it is stuck, hit it with a hammer a few times between the studs.
  • Step 5 Install the caliper support and caliper in the reverse order they were taken off. Install the wheels and let the vehicle down. Check the brake fluid and fill as necessary to the proper level.
  • Step 6 Start the vehicle and pump the brakes very slowly until you have a high pedal. Remember that by expanding the calipers they have to re-adjust. You will not have any braking when you first start the car. Do not try to move the car until you have pumped the brake pedal sufficiently to feel a firm pedal.

  • Step 4 Remove the bearing cap in the center of the rotor. Remove the cotter pin. Remove the large nut that retains the bearings and rotor. Wobble the rotor with your hands and the front bearing will come out.
  • Step 5 Reinstall the spindle nut with just a few threads. Grabbing the rotor with both hands, pull the rotor off with slight down pressure and with a quick ****. The spindle nut will grab the rear bearing and seal as you pull the rotor off and come out at the same time.
  • Step 6 Install the bearings into the new rotor. Grease the bearings first and install the rear large bearing then install the grease seal with the hammer. Install the rotor on the spindle and insert the front small bearing followed by the large washer and the retaining nut.
  • Step 7 Tighten the retaining nut just until there is no longer any freeplay then tighten an additional 90 degrees. Do not over tighten the retaining nut as it will not allow the bearings to expand and they will wear out rapidly. Install the cotter pin.
  • Step 8 Install the caliper support and caliper in the reverse order they were taken off. Install the wheels and let the vehicle down. Check the brake fluid and fill as necessary to the proper level.
  • Step 9 Start the vehicle and pump the brakes very slowly until you have a high pedal. Remember that by expanding the calipers they have to re-adjust. You will not have any braking when you first start the car. Do not try to move the car until you have pumped the brake pedal sufficiently to feel a firm pedal

    How to removal front rotor 2001 jeep grand cherokee


    Normally, to remove a front rotor you remove tire, then must remove the caliper.

    To remove caliper, there are two screws that the caliper is secured with that are accessed from the back side of the caliper. Unscrew these, pull all of the way out. The caliper should then be free to be slid out of it's position and off of the rotor. You'll need to support the caliper somehow. Most magazine show using heavy wire to hang it, I often take a small bucket upside down to set it on so the brake hose is not stressed.

    Most front wheel drive & I think 4-WD vehicles, the rotor will slip right off. If not and there is a grease cup covering the center of the hub, will need to pop this off with a screw driver. Then remove the retaining clip that is inserted thru the threaded shaft to prevent the nut that is exposed from working it's way loose. Remove the nut, and now the rotor will come right off.

    Re-assembling this nut at the right torgue is a key to getting everything back together properly. Too tight, you burn up the bearings and hurt fuel economy. Too loose and the tire wobbles, excessive wear, lot of issues.

    Brake rotor replacement on 2004 matrix


    If you are talking about the brake rotors, you do NOT remove the 30 mm nut. That nut just holds the axle shaft to the hub. Remove the caliper and the caliper bracket, the rotor should come off, you may have to tap the brake rotor to dislodge it from the center hub.
