Question about 2005 Ford Escape
I ahve thebrake caliper off and now need to get the damaged rotor off. I can't seem to budge it. Do I need to take the large nut in the center off? If so what sized socket do I need and how much torque should I need to apply to remove it.
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.
