Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla

On my 2006 Corolla removed the caliper bracket, but there is a star shaped bolt in front of the rotor. Just read where this bolt dosen't need to come off but not convinced. Could anybody confirm that? thanks.

If you are trying to remove the rotor then this bolt is holding the rotor to the hub bearing. If you are just replacing the pads then this does not need to be removed.

How do I remove the front rotors on a 2006 Toyota corolla?


Its fairly easy actually just remove the tires. Remove calipers and caliper mounting brackets (when you put the caliper mounting brackets back on lock tite hould be used). and they should be east to hammer off (there may be a little clip on one of the studs holding on the rotor).

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.

How to replace front discs (abs)


Jack up the vehicle, and place a jack stand under the frame where you are working. Remove the wheel/tire. Observe the caliper. On the back side, remove the bolts that holds the caliper onto the caliper bracket. Suspend the caliper, and try to not stretch or kink the rubber brake hose. Next, remove the bolts that holds the caliper bracket to the metal plate. After the bracket is loose, tap on the backside of the rotor to dislodge it from the hub. This is a very easy procedure.

2006 toyota corolla - rotors


The large bolt that you see is the nut that holds the axle shaft to the hub. You do not need to remove it to remove the rotors. You just need to remove the caliper & the caliper bracket. Normally, the rotors come off of the hubs easily, but sometimes, they rust onto the hub. My techs beat and beat and beat until they come off. With large hammers. Note that after they are beaten off, the rotors are no longer viable for re-use.
