Question about 2004 Chevrolet Colorado
I can't seem to take off the front rotors, I've tried different scenarios and the darn thing does not budge.
That guy is an idiot.... Okay, there are 4- 15MM bolts on the back side of the hub that have to be removed. Losten them up until they are about to come out....leaving only a few threads stuck in the hole. Using a hammer, bang on all 4 bolts a little to push the hub off. Once it is started and has moved out a little, remove the bolds and continue with a pry bar and a hammer on the rotor. If you intend to resurface the rotors, use wood as a buffer when hammering. The better method is to beat the rotors and replace. They only cost about $40 each at autozone. It is the crappiest design in all of GM history, but not that horrible once you figure it out.
Be careful of the antilock sensor a the rear of the hub. It will need to be re-tapped into place when the rotor/hub is reinstalled.

Can't remove them from axle, the brake rotors are resurfaced by a portable machine that rolls up under the truck to get to the rotors, axle and rotor are one piece!
