1. remove wheel
2. remove (unbolt) the brake caliper assembly and wire or zip tie to hang somewhere out of the way as to not put stress on flexible brake line
3. if rotor does not slide off hub, there may be a clip like an internal star washer retaining it on one of the lug studs, small retaining bolts in the face of the rotor, or some auto manufacterers even have the wheel bearing as part of the rotor assembly ( these conditions are apparrent after tire/wheel is removed

Need to replace rotor/hub assembly on 08 f150


The rotor/hub assembly can be turned; it's done by a lathe that's placed directly on the rotor while it is still mounted on the vehicle. It is called an On Car Brake Lathe.

If you do replace the entire rotor/hub, I suggest buying OEM parts from Ford. There is a major difference in quality over third party vendor parts sold at your local auto parts store; which warp or wear faster...the OEM part has better lasting sealed wheel bearings too

How do I remove the rotor on my 1995 dodge 2500 4x4? My problem in the center cap holding it.


Brake Disc (Rotor) REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Raise and safely support the front of the truck with jackstands. Remove the front wheel.
  2. Remove the caliper assembly and support it to the frame with a piece of wire without disconnecting the brake fluid hose.
  3. Remove the hub and rotor assembly.
  4. Install the rotor in the reverse order of removal, and adjust the wheel bearing as outlined in Section 1.
INSPECTION If the rotor is deeply scarred or has shallow cracks, it may be refinished on a disc brake rotor lathe. Also, if the lateral run-out exceeds 0.010 in. (0.25mm) within a 6 in. (152mm) radius when measured with a dial indicator, with the stylus 1 in. (25mm) in from the edge of the rotor, the rotor should be refinished or replaced. A maximum of 0.020 in. (0.5mm) of material may be removed equally from each friction surface of the rotor. If the damage cannot be corrected when the rotor has been machined to the minimum thickness shown on the rotor, it should be replaced. The finished braking surfaces of the rotor must be parallel within 0.007 in. (0.178mm) and lateral run-out must not be more than 0.003 in. (0.076mm) on the inboard surface in a 5 in. (127mm) radius.

How do i remove old rotor to replace with a new one


brake rotor or distributor rotor?

The brake rotor usually gets rusted on....putting a hammer on one portion of the rotor face and striking the rotor face 180 degrees from the first hammer should do it.

Distributor rotor is under the distributor cap. Two screws usually free the cap and expose the rotor. You pull off the old one and push on the new one!

Good luck and be careful!

I have a 2000 f150 5 speed 4x4 and can not keep rotors true


If your problem is in the front set you may have bad hubs. Once you bolt the rotor to the hub the rotor will follow the hub. If the hub has a bad bearing the hub will pitch the rotor and the rotor will hit the same high spot no matter how many rotors you install.

This is hard to catch because it takes the weight of the vehicle to bear down on the hub bearing. You may notice uneven tire wear.

There were some problems with water warping the rotors after your hot rotors were bathed in water before parking. And sticking calipers can overheat the rotors.

Check your hubs and if they are okay you could try some vented rotors with holes drilled in them for cooling.

Replacing front rotors and pads 2006 grand cherokee


Why would you put tape on the rotors when doing brakes? Once calipers are removed, rotors come right off. Never saw any seal on rotors and don't know what a seal would do there....Unless it's put there on assembly line to keep rotor from falling off? I wouldn't be concerned.

Can't get the damn rotor off 06 Hyundai Sonata


Depends somewhat if it's a front rotor or a rear rotor. The most common problem will be "corrosion" that's binding the two metal parts together. If you are not trying to reuse the rotor after turning (many are throwaways now adays) take a large hammer and bang the outer edge of the rotor. The vibration should cause the corrosion to break apart, and the rotor should pull away. If your planning on re-using the rotor after turning use a large rubber mallet.

The front rotors have about a 3/4 inch common surface between the rotor and the wheel hub. You may need to bang on the backside of the rotor as you slowly turn the rotor in order to cause the two parts to slide apart. It can be a slow process, but you should see some movement (but it must be even movement around the entire rotor. The back rotors have far less common surface and a few good waps should break the parts free.

* All brake rotors have a discard dimension cast into them. Replace any rotor that does not meet this Specification. After refinishing the rotor, replace any rotor that does not meet the minimum or discard thickness specifications.

Im trying to install a new rear hub assembly and cannot get the rotor off. Any sugestions.


Remove the rotors. Rusted rotors will most likely stick to the car due to the iron oxidizing and bonding to the mount of the wheel. If this happens, you are going to need a little force to remove the rotor from the wheel. With the car properly secured, get a single-hand sledge mallet (rubber preferably to protect the rotor). If you don’t have a rubber mallet, use a block of wood to absorb direct hits. Start at the top of the rotor and tap the edge of the rotor gently as you move clockwise around the rotor. Once loose, remove the rotor from the car.
