    The rotor mounts to a hub and that's where the studs are (on the hub), not on the rotor itself. There is a nut holding the hub on. Not sure at this point if the studs can be pressed out of the hub and simply replaced or if you need to buy the entire thing.

    According to Hyundai, the studs come as an integral part of the hub. You can not by them individually. Very expensive part if you get it from Hyundai.

Nothing tricky, if you've ever changed a rotor before. One thing the Hyundai has is a single phillips head screw that holds the rotor to the hub. You have to remove that and then with some persuasion the rotor will come off of the hub just like most other rotors. The studs, however, stay with the hub and according to Hyundai you cannot remove the studs from the hub. Therefore, if you need to replace a stud, you will need to eat the cost of a new hub. That, again according to Hyundai, the hub (no labor) will run around $345 as of July 2008. Shop around, I'm sure you can find them cheaper than that. Good luck and be VERY careful about who rotates your tires or has anything to do with taking the lug nuts on or off. It's a very expensive fix if you need to go there.

Brake rotor and front or rear?

Okay, remove the wheel then remove the brake caliper and move to side do not allow to hang on the brake hose, use a hook to hang off spring or set aside. next remove the caliper bracket, two bolts at rear of bracket to remove it.
next you will use a hammer to remove the rotor.

NOTE: the way the brake rotor was designed was a bad one the hub in which the rotor slides over and the wheel studs slide into holes on the rotor is bad the hub diameter is almost the same size as the diameter of the seat of the rotor that slide over the hub and what happens is sometimes the rust build up on the rotor seat locks the brake rotor on the hub. i do not know if you are reusing the rotors or replacing them, no sure what job you are doing . the rotors to take off you will need to tap on the rear of them with a little force and turn, hit and turn. you will need to see if they break free or if hard beating and spraying into the rear of them is needed with wd40.
Alot of these rotors also have two threaded hole on the face of the rotor near the studs so that you can screw two bolts into holes to help pull them. use wire to tie caliper up and also use a c-clamp to push piston into calipe to remove caliper if needed, Do not remove brake hose, there is no need to open system, here is a picture of the rotor coming of the hub, also there may be clips on the stud holding rotor on remove them use cutters or pry off do not need to reuse , they are to help in holding the rotor on during asm, if you want you can buy them and reinstall them but never reuse them.12_25_2012_5_41_09_pm.png

How to remove the brake rear left side

If you have rear Rotors, there is a complete drum inside the Rotor for the Emergency brakes. The Star wheel is an adjustment wheel for slack on this part. You need to turn the star wheel to let the Rotor slip off.

Also, block your wheels, disconnect Battery, then put Gearshift in Neutral. Turn the wheel and you can work the Rotor off. You may have to use Penetrating oil on the outside of the Rotor and the center "Ring" of the axle. Oil and turn the Rotor, 1 stud at a time.
Hit the rotor between the studs and the center of the Axle.

What you are trying to accomplish is getting oil into the stud holes so that it runs into the rotor and loosens the rust bond.

When you reassemble the parts, buy some Antiseize compound and smear it on the axle so the rotor can not rust together again.

This advice and the star wheel instructions also holds true for drum brakes too!.

How to remove drivers side rear rotor? Cannot get it

First, if you have the wheel up and the other tires chocked it is sometimes necessary to turn the rear wheel. You will probably need to disconnect the Battery and put the Trans in Neutral. The backing plate of the wheel has a Rubber cover which hides the Star adjustment wheel for the Emergency brake shoes.

You want to loosen the Star wheel to draw in the Ebrake shoes. Since you are able to turn the Rotor in Neutral, you will know if you have loosened it enough to come off.

If the Rotor still will not come off, put penetrating oil on the studs and the center circle where the rotor meets the axle hub. If you know the rotor is tore up you don't have to be gentle in beating it off. Check your parts prices, a new part may only cost a little more than turning the old rotor.

Let gravity work for you in getting the oil into the hub. Oil the 12 O'clock stud, turn it to the next stud, repeat. Same for the center of the rotor. then hit the rotor between the center and the stud holes.

When you put on the new rotor, put an Antiseize product on the hub. If you ever need to remove the rotor again, it will be much easier to get off. I live in the Rustbelt, this method works.

Replace rear brake pads 2006 Chevy Impala

Hello, to replace the rear brake pads follow the following steps:

1. Lift the Chevy Impala with the jack and place it on jack stands.
2. Remove the wheels with a lug-nut wrench and set them aside. The lug-nut wrench can be found in the trunk of your Chevy Impala.
3. Remove the caliper with a ratchet and use a bungee cord to hang the caliper. Do not let the caliper hang from the brake hose, as the hose might break and cause fluid to leak.

4. Remove the brake caliper bracket from the steering knuckle with a ratchet. Set it aside.

5. Remove the break rotor from the hub. The rotor might require force to be removed; if it does, use a hammer to hit the rotor in the center, where the lug studs are located. Take care not to hit the studs.

6. Remove the new rotor from its packaging and use brake cleaner to remove the grease from the rotor. Grease is applied on the rotor in the factory to inhibit rust during storage.

7. Install the new rotor onto the hub.

8. Install the caliper bracket with new brake pads onto the rotor and fasten it to the steering knuckle. Use a ratchet to tighten the bolts.
9. Open the master cylinder reservoir so you don't break a seal while compressing the brake caliper.

10. Compress the brake caliper with a C-clamp, so that the caliper can fit over the new brake pads. Install the caliper by securing it to the brake caliper bracket with a ratchet.

Need to know how to replace front studs

You might be able to get the studs out by removing the brake caliper and working thru that hole, if not you will have to remove the rotor. Working thru the caliper hole knock the studs out with a hammer, if you can get your hand or other tool in to remove the old stud, and insert the new one, use a nut of the proper thread, not the lug nut, to pull the stud into the rotor a little grease on the threads will be a big help here. Make sure the studs are fully seated by measuring the length of one of the old ones before you remove it and pull the new ones in untill the length matches. If you have to remove the rotor you will require a special tool to remove the locking nut from the rotor, but once the rotor is off use the same procedure to change the studs.

Trying to remove and replace rear brake rotors

First, make sure your parking brake is off.
Remove the rear caliper and then the brake pad housing. In the center hub of the rotor the parking brake shoes are located. The may need to be loosen first. There is a hole between 2 of the studs you need to align at the bottom. Look in the hole with a flashlight and find the star wheel. Use a screw driver to turn the wheel up a few turns to loosen the parking brake shoes from the rotor hub.
After that there are 2 threaded holes in the rotor near the studs you put two 8mm bolts in and slowly tighten each and it will pull the rotor off the hub. They rust up pretty bad so use penetrating oil on them.
