Generally, turning the wheels either hard right or hard left will produce needed clearance when trying to remove mounting bolts. Are you using a socket and ratchet, or a end wrench? Sometimes it's necessary to use a end wrench.

Be sure to not OVER TORQUE the bolts when doing the re-assembly. If you have any doubts about torque values, purchase a vehicle specific repair manual from your local auto parts store (Pep Boy's, Advance, Auto Zone, O'Reilly's, etc.) and you'll find the needed info.

Also be sure to adequately clean the pad holders, caliper slides, pins, etc. and lube as required before re-assembly.

Good luck!

Issues replacing front rotors

The brakets can be removed by removing two (2) fairly large hex head bolts on the back side of the wheel assembly. Apply a small amount of WD-40, but do not get any on the other brake parts. Using an extension pipe on the handle of a 3/8 inch rachet you should get enough leverage to break the bolts free. Make CERTAIN you are using a snug fitting socket to avoid rounding the hex head bolts, or you job will get twice as difficult. If all else fails you can spot apply some heat to the bolt head, and then try loosening the bolt again. Avoid heating up any grease areas or rubber parts. I generally use a pipe extension that is about 12 inches in length, as opposed to just the short rachet handle.
