Spray lugs nuts and the back of the rotor where you can see the lugs seated in the hub - turn and spray with rust frre or brake free or wd 40 - spray and hit with a large hammer on the back side - turn wheel all the way to one side so you can access back of brake - it will take a good couple of hours to get them off

Disconnect the RJ45 network cables from the routers.

Removed the two screws on rotor face and the rotor will not come off or even move...used penatrating oil...beat with 2lb sledge...will not

If you have removed the caliper and the mounting bracket from the wheel,then removed the set screws in the rotor face itself and also make sure the wheel nut doesnt hole the rotor on also,then the rotor is simply rusted/frozen on the hub.Spray it all over and behind and let it soak.It shouldnt be that hard to get off the hub unless there is a wheel nut holding it on or another set screw.

I am trying to remove my front rotor from a 2000 95 saab. I removed the caliper, 1 retaining bolt for the rotor to the hub, and it won,t budge. I have a puller on it, put heat to it, beat it with a hammer....

Is the caliper off? or at least swung away from the rotor. The only other thing holding the rotor to the hub is 2 small phillips head screws. If it still does not come off it is binding at the centre on the hub. Be careful of heating the hub as this may damage the wheel bearing. WD40 on the centre portion of the rotor along with hammering around the outer rim of the rotor may release it. Rotate the rotor as you tap on the edge. If the rotor is due for replacement anyway you can hammer away.

2000 Dodge Dakota 4 wheel drive hub wont budge

These can REALLY stick solidly in place. I usually get them off with one of two methods: A big slide hammer attached to the wheel studs using a hub adapter or by pushing against one of the hub mounting bolts using my biggest air hammer with a flat hammer bit in it. You will wreck the head of the bolt doing this so you need to have another one on hand if it comes to that. I turn the bolt nearly all the way back in so there is just an 1/8" of room between the head of the bolt and the steering knuckle [to provide the maximum thread surface on which the force will be applied] and then rattle on it with the air hammer unit it moves a bit. You may need to move this bolt around to the other holes to work the hub free. Clean the corrosion and rust out of the bore that the hub mounts in before installing the new hub so it will go back in properly. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

Trying to remove the inner rear wheel on my dually-diesel. Never had to before. Removed the inner bolts, won't budge. Is there anything else to "remove" or do I just start beating it with a mallet?

yes these are now on a "pilot hub" and any dust/dirt will make them seize,wet them down and carefully beat the inner wheel loose,after removal though do not use any "anti-seize" compound on anything when replacing the dual assembly,but a little grease on the outer nut/washer combo so the washer spins freely of the cap nut is recommended

How to get the rear wheel hub off i took the 4 bolts off tried knocking it with a rubber malet and it wont budge

To be completely honest I never try to replace a hub without heat, whethere it be propane, map or oxy acetaline. Heat at the hub not the mount, then try beating with a 5- 10lb sledge. If no budge try using a cold chisel also.

1992 626 Rear Drum stuck

Does it have a dust cap in the center? If so, pry it off and remove the nut. It also might have a reverse thread (check). If it doesn't have the cap, then you might have to cut the drum in half. But I am almost positive that it does have the metal dust cap in the center of the hub/drum. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Let me know how things went. I'll still be here if you need me.

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.
