Is the piece you are referring to the piece that holds the brake pads? If so there should be two larger head bolts behind that piece that holds it on to the front axle.

How do I get the front brake rotor off of a 2006 GMC Canyon 2 WD?

Tools Required:

Lug Removal Tool
Impact Gun(Recommended)
Sockets.. Lots of metric sockets
Porta Power(hydraulic piston) --- THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT... use to press hub off..


1) Jack vehicle and support on jack stands.

2) Remove front tire.

3) Remove Front Brake caliper.. hang on frame using a bungee or other support
Important to not stress hose.

4) Remove brake pad support.

5) Remove 4 bolts from rear of hub.

6) Undo bolt for ABS sensorfrom frame, undo all clips holding wire.
Crawl under truckand unclip wire connector(trace wire from the ABS sensorto find it)

7) Make sure wire is unclipped from the frame and will not bind on removal of hub. (Prevents Damage of ABS sensor)

icon_cool.gif.pagespeed.ce.l5kzkvpb-u.gifTRICKY PART: Turn the wheels so that you can use the hydraulic porta-power against where the lower control arm mountsto the front. (Turn the
wheel left). Position porta-power to be placed inside dimple of the middle of the hub. DO NOT DAMAGE ABS SENSOR...
Pump Porta-power until hub "Pops".. be extremely careful removing the hub not to damage the ABS wireat all.. It is easy to break and not notice (I did
this and had to resplice it)

9) Hub should be removed from vehicle by this point and you can remove the six bolts holding the old rotor on. Still be careful not to damage the sensor.

10) Change the rotor. (do not use impact gun to reattach.. may strip threads)

11) Installation is basically reverse of removal.

12) Install brake pads, press caliper back in (typical brake job)

13) Put tire back on.. do other side.. and you're done.

Porta Poweris this....

look at the face of the rotor between wheel studs there should be a small threaded hole it usually takes a 12 mm bolt it works like a press thread the bolt in and it should press rotor off, if it is stuborn tap on the side of the rotor (not the edge the side of ur rotors hub flange)
good luck

    How do i change the front rotors on my 2006 gmc sierra 3500

    Remove the wheels
    Stick a punch or something sturdy in a rotor cooling hole so it jams against the caliper. Loosen the 8 nuts that can be accessed through the 8 holes in the hub flange.
    Remove the calipers from the knuckles and hang them from something other than the brake hose.
    Remove the previously loosened 8 rotor nuts.
    Tap the rotor with a hammer and it should fall off.

    Brakes just dont seem right.. dealer said they put on new front rotors when i 1st complained.. but only got alittle better, brakes still seem like i have to apply with alot of force, when with my wifes...

    If the vehicle has rear drum brakes, I would check the adjustment on them, if they are too loose, this will cause the brake pedal to go down low.
