As far as the rotors are concerned, it looks like the standard set-up, where the wheel is the only thing holding it on, although the calipers would also have to come off to remove them completely. Pretty sure that the "K2" mentioned on this page would be referring to the K2500 3/4-ton.

They may of course be a little sticky, as is often the case after being on for a few years, in which case a few raps with a hammer around the flange will usually loosen it. Be careful not to hit the studs and damage the threads.

There does appear to be another style (K3) that would require a puller like this;

but I'm thinking that would only apply to the 1-ton, where the hub and rotor are a single assembly, and that tool is used to push the axle stub out.

I just had the brakes repaired (replaced) and I have the front right brake locking up. Any suggestions?

Hello mike96860,

There are two typical reasons:

1. The caliper is bad.
2. The brake hose is bad.

To check for which one you need to lift and support the front of the car. With the key on engine off put the car into neutral. Remove the right front wheel. Have an assistant press and hold the brake pedal.
While you try to turn the rotor have your assistant release the brake if working properly the rotor should turn immediately.If not then follow the next step.

1. Have your assistant press and release the brake pedal then open the bleeder screw while trying to turn the rotor, if the rotor turns that indicates that the brake hose is bad, if not that means the caliper is bad.

Because you will be opening the bleeder you will want to bleed that caliper, no need to bleed the entire system.

My car camry 2003 runs well usually but sometimes the car trembles or gives trembling noise when the brake is applied.

will try to help.your front brakes and rotors may need replacement. when you apply brakes say,at 40 mph do you feel vibration on brake pedal or shaking in steering wheel? the vibration comes from worn or warped front brake rotors. while you have those rotors replaced,go ahead and have new front brakes applied also,or else you'll still have brake problems.always ask to see old parts when you have brakes and rotors unless you have a complety trustable mechanic! the rotors will be round and silver,a very bad brake rotor will have grooves cut in it.always shop for best price at different shops to get a picture of the price for replacement! do not be afraid to ask questions! front brake pads can cost anywhere fron $20.00 to $45.00 rotors can cost $40.00 to $50.00 each there will only be 2 rotors on the front and the brakes are complete for the front,both sides,on the front. as a general rule you'll replace your front brakes twice before you'll need to replace the back brakes because most of you stopping power comes from the front brakes. and as always,if you need further assistance please contact an expert!thank you for choosing

I trying to figure out how to remove the front brake rotor of a 2000 kia sportage. All the brake parts have been removed. I have opened the cap but it looks like it is crimped so that it can not be...

The dust cap does not have to be removed and the hub nut is secured with a cotter pin, and the two other holes should be two 8 mm fine thread bolt holes across from each other on the brake rotor that are not used to pull the rotor off, but instead are used to screw two bolts into those holes and then use a ratchet or wrench to tighten the bolts down and push the rotor off of the hub.

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?

The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

Frontend shakes when braking, sometimes - have

The actual disc rotors have warped with heat (eg, driving with foot lightly on brake pedal). Easy fix, take it to a brake shop and get them to true the rotors. In New Zealand, we have guys that come to you to do it but essentially, they use a lathe and trim disc provided it doesn't go below manufacturers specs for thickness.

Front brake shimmy

I would try replacing the rotors altogether.If after resurfacing them your getting .010 runout on them in a few days, those rotors are getting soft.
Also, check the rotor mating surfaces, ie, where the rotor touches the hub when installed, and make sure it is clean and smooth. Any rust or brake dust buildup on the hub will prevent the rotor from sitting flush to the hub. I would also recommend replacing the brake pads, if you do the rotors, as the pads could have worn unevenly due to the rotors being warped.
