The two mounting bolts are installed with Lock tight sealer. Use a 6 pointed boxed end wrench and a hammer on the two bolts. Hit the wrench hard to loosen these bolts up. An impact wrench is much easier to use

How remove the rotor to change bearing for 2005 chev colorado front

first you remove all the lug nuts and the wheel and tire. To get the rotor off you will need to remove the brake caliper. they are held in with 1/4" hex screws. If you don't have an allen wrench you can use a socket extension to removes these. Once unscrewed the calpet simply lifts off the rotor and the rotor is ready to come off. You will need to remove the axle nut and keeper then the rotor slides off towards you and the wheel bearings will come out with the rotor.

Raise and support the front end on jackstands.
  1. Remove the wheel.
  2. Remove the hub nut and washer. Insert a long drift or dowel through the vanes in the brake rotor to hold the rotor while loosening the nut.
  3. Using a puller, force the outer end of the axle shaft out of the hub. Remove the hub/rotor.
To install:
  1. Position the shaft in the hub and install the washer and hub nut. Leave the drift in the rotor vanes and tighten the hub nut to 173 ft. lbs. (235 Nm).
  2. Remove the drift.
  3. Install the wheel and lower the vehicle.

How to replace front rotor on 2005 pontiac vibe?I have removed caliper and caliper bracket do I need to remove axle nut and if so how?

once the caliper and bracket are removed, the rotors should just come off. These are hat style rotors and just slip over the hub. They do have a tendency to rust on, sometimes hitting them with a hammer between the studs will break them loose. some rotors have threaded holes between teh wheel studs that you can screw a bolt into to break them free.

How do you remove the rotors from a 1991 honda accord?

Loosen both front wheel lug nuts and raise car and support on jack stands. Remove wheels and have a friend hold brake pedal down and remove axle nut. Use a chisel or screwdriver to remove stake on nut to axle edge. I use a 3/4 drive set socket and remove axle nut. Rent it from Autozone. Remove caliper assy and support with coat hanger or bungee cord to hold weight of assy off of brake hose. Remove Cotter pin and nut on lower control arm. Separate with ball joint fork and pull strut assy away to the side while pulling stub axle through and out of the way. Remove 4 bolts holding rotor and hub assy. on the inside of steering knuckle and separate. Now remove 4 bolts on hub's outer side and separate rotor and hub. You can use a bar or large screwdriver between wheel studs to loosen the 4 bolts.

Chances are your rotor is rusted to the drive axle. Another thing is there might be 4-bolts securing the rotor to the hub. Unless you get those bolts off, the roror won't come off. If you have Haynes manual, it is a good guide because you see things in detail.

How to remove broken lug on 98 Elantra. Can't get the disc off that lugs press into. Already have removed 4 bolts/nuts that secure this disc to the brake rotor. Also have already removed large castle nut...

As far as I can determine, your Elantra has standard rear disc brakes.
The lugs should be attached to the hub, which is attached to the axle. The Disc or Rotor (they're one and the same) slip onto the hub. Oftentimes the disc will seize on the hub from rust. You need to spray the center hole, where the disc goes over the hub, with spray penetrating oil. Also spray the lug stud holes. Then take a (dead blow )hammer and hit the disc around its perimeter. It should then come loose.
The broken stud can then be taken out by hitting the front of the stud with a hammer. You may want to spray the back of the stud where it seats on the hub before taking the hammer to it. Place the new stud through the rear and make sure it's seated correctly.
Clean all parts with brake parts cleaner. The lug studs should not have any lubrication on them.
You have to re-set that "large castle nut" that was removed to its proper Preload Torque. I do not know that spec, but you need to find it out, and how it's done.
Suggest you purchase a Repair Manual for your vehicle(s). It really is the best tool you can get.

I'm trying to remove the front rotor from a 91 Honda Accord and I need to remove the four bolts that retain the hub unit to the steering knuckle. I cannot find explicit instructions on how to pull the cv...

ok not sure the set up without seeing it but if it a floating rotor remove the caliper and braket that the caliper bolts to there will be to phillips screws holding rotor on in the front of rotor remove those and take rotor off. If you have trouble with those screws let me know. If it is a pressed on rotor witch alot of hondas have you will need a slide hammer and a piece that attaches to the end that looks like a ducks foot with four holes or the other one that is not flat but raised you can borrow them tools from autozone. Remove axle nut in center and washer. You see witch attachment will fit over atleast two studs where the lug nuts go (over one stud on one side an the other across not right next to each other) then put lug nuts on to hold the attachment on get them pretty tight. then screw the slide hammer in the center of the attachement screw in a good distance. Know for the fun part you might want to grab a rag slide the piece that slides with wrag wrapped around slide it close to the rotor **** it hard till it hits the end becarefull not to pinch your finger or hand then just keep sliding it close to the rotor and slam it back to the outer end hard some come off easy some take some work just keep hammering away at it. stop every know and then to check lug nuts to make sure they stay tight, you should notice if it is coming out or not dont give up it will come. Also becarefull when it comes off it could hurt you besure to stand on the side. Note, you dont have to remove rotor to remove axle. To remove axle you must remove center axle nut. Then you have to disconnect tie rod end, remove the cotter pin take off bolt use a tie rod seperator slide it in between the tie rod and hole try not to mess up rubber boot hit the end with hammer untill it pops free, then there might be three bolts underneath take those out, if there not there then just disconnect bolts that hold the steering knuckle to the strut take them out pull down you should now have enough room to push xle through if it dont slide out of the hole easy use a punch and hammer put punch in to hole at end of axle hit with hammer, I suggest spraying with wd40 if that dont free it up, take the axle nut turn it around backwards scew on till flush with axle end hit with hammer (do not damage the end) once it comes out you should be able to get to the four bolts. if you just need the rotor off dont worry about axle removal when you put the rotor back on it should go on enough to thread axle nut and tighten pressing rotor back on, before you do check the bearings(balls there should not be one missing put some high temp grease in there. tighten axle nut till rotor is flush all the way in it is best to use a air gun or it will be difficult. hope this helps. I will check this post to see if you run into a problem.

Taking off front rotors

the easiest way is to take off the knuckle loosen the four wheel bearing bolts on the backside of the knuckle and leaving the socket on each bolt use an impact hammer to drive the bearing out then rotate the rotor 1/4 turn and it should pull off. . . you might have to clean up the rust on the bearing with a grinder so the rotor will come off... do NOT take the bearing apart you do not need to. many shops will do this but it is not needed and ruins the bearing as it is a sealed unit not designed to come apart. ( to take the knuckle out take off the caliper and undo the axle nut, top and bottom ball joint and the tie rod end)

93 honda accord rotors

Your Accord has what is called "Trapped Rotors". They actually fit behind the hub. The procedure to remove them is not complicated, but it is time consuming.
Here is how I do it:
1) Remove axle retaining nut.
2) Remove brake caliper and bracket.
3) Remove lower ball joint retaining nut and use pickle fork to loosen spindle from lower ball joint.
4) Remove axle from hub.
5) On the back of the spindle, remove four bolts that attach hub/bearing to spindle.
6) Use slide hammer to remove rotor/hub assembly.
7) Remove 4 bolts attaching rotor to hub.
8) While it is a snug fit, the hub bearing does slide through center of rotor to remove it.
Installation is in reverse order.
A bad bearing usually makes a growling noise while driving.
