The rotors bolt in from behind the hub and bearing assembly, very bad design! GM states you have to remove the steering knuckle, the bolts from the hub assembly, then the ABS sensor ring, then the rotor bolts and it will come off. To re-assemble, install the knuckle in the truck, bolt the rotor to the hub assembly, then the ABS part, then install on knuckle.

A long, drawn out procedure, takes 5 hours to change both rotors if you know what you're doing. Get a manual if you're going to try and tackle this job, it's a PITA.

I would not recommend changing only one; this is something that should be done at least on both sides.

If it isn't apparent what you need to do after looking at the hub with the wheel removed, I recommend you buy an aftermarket service manual from Haynes or Chilton to guide you through it.
Either of them is well illustrated and have pretty decent step-by-step instructions.
You'll be glad you invested the <$20 in the future too.

    Hi, I'm trying to change the rotors on a 2006 GMC Canyon and we can't seem to get the piece in front of the rotor off. Is there a schematic for them?


    Is the piece you are referring to the piece that holds the brake pads? If so there should be two larger head bolts behind that piece that holds it on to the front axle.

    I replaced my brake rotors on a 2004 gmc canyon and installed new brakes. everything works great, however my abs light stays on now.


    IF you installed the wrong brake rotors,without the ABS reluctor ring[if equipped],the light will come on.Second possibility is you damaged the ABS wiring to the wheel speed sensor.There is a harness to each wheel.

    How do you remove the front rotor on a 2004 canyon?


    Jack the car up in the air and get it safely on jackstands.Then remove the front tires.Remove the calipers and caliper mounts.Then remove the center bearing cap, next remove the bearing tension nut, then the outer bearing will fall out with the washer.Last step is to firmly tug on the rotorand then remove the bolts in the center part of the rotor to split it from the hub.

    My brake rotor is mounted behind the wheel hub on my 2004 GMC Canyon 4WD pickup. How do I remove the hub so I can get the rotor off? Tks.


    Your going to hate this answer. The wheel hub has to come off. This brake system was designed by Isuzu. Don't know what else to say, it's a lousy job.

    Abs


    Disconnect the positive lead on battery wait about 30 seconds and reconnect. Take it out somewhere where you can floor it and go through the gears a couple times. This will clear error lights and establish a new acceration curve. If the error comes back then start looking for loose connections or alignment problem for abs stuff.
