Yes, you need to remove the center nut. The proper socket size tends to differ between models, so its kind of a guess and check thing. The tourque setting is also variable between vehicles of the same model and year, try finding a mechanics guide for the car, and checking that. But once you get that nut off all you should have to do is pry the rotor from the back of the hub, and it should pop right off.

How does one remove the rear caliper holder so the rotor can be removed. It appears to be held on by two bolts but they do not budge.


the two inside bolts will come off, may need a breaker bar as they are snug, they are on the inside top and bottom of the brake caliper. once the caliper is removed support it with a clothes hanger as not to damage the brake lines. Good Luck Tim

Replace brake pads on 2007 vw polo


Park the polo on level ground, turn the engine off and apply the parking brake. Pull the hood release handle and move to the front of the car.

Lift the hood and remove the master cylinder. Remove one-half of the brake fluid inside the reservoir with a syringe.

Loosen the lug nuts on the rear wheels with a tire iron. Place the jack beneath the frame at the back of the Volkswagen and lift the back tires off the ground. Rest the rear axles of the Volkswagen on two jack stands. Remove the lug nuts and take the rear wheels off.

Reach behind the brake caliper to locate the caliper mounting pins. Remove the pins with a 12 mm socket and ratchet. Lift the caliper from the brake rotor and suspend it above the wheel assembly with a bungee cord or wire coat hanger.

Remove the rear brake pads from the slots in the caliper bridge. Inspect the caliper bridge and rotor for damage and significant wear. Replace the rotor if it is warped or badly scored. Scoring of the rotors can lead to break failure and will prematurely wear the new brake pads. Place new brake pads into the slots of the caliper bridge.

Attach the piston depression tool to the caliper. The tool will fit over the back side of the caliper and against the piston inside. Twist the tool's handle to force the piston into the side of the rear caliper. Remove the tool once the caliper piston is totally depressed within the caliper.

Replace the caliper onto the caliper bridge and screw in the caliber mounting pens by hand. Replace the rear wheel onto the wheel bolt and screw on the lug nuts.

Repeat the process for the other side of the rear of the polo. Lift the rear end of the vehicle with the jack and remove the jack stands. Lower the rear tires to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

Return to the engine compartment. Remove the master cylinder cap and check the level of brake fluid. Place a funnel into the container and fill the reservoir with brake fluid as needed.

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.

Rear rotor on a 2007 chrysler town and country won't budge.


Sounds like you have that old "rust" problem. Rust and calcium build up around the hub and behind the rotor. Wire brush as much as you can around the hub. Using a medium hammer tap the rotor near the hub between the studs. Take care not to hit the studs because this will damage the threads. Sometimes applying some heat with a small butane torch will help free the rotor. Do not heat severely, this will cause warpage. Take your time and you will be successfull. Good luck Moe

I have a 2003 mercury marquis. Both rear hubs


If you have the caliper and retaining rings off the park brake must be holding it. This vehicle has small parking brake shoes that apply to the inside of rotor hat. Try backing off the adjustment and tap the sides of the hat to free them up.

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.
