Take the tyre off, remove your disc brake pads (all held in by clips and residual brake pressure). Then remove the large nut in the middle which holds your bearings in. The disc should come away with a bit of effort - you may need a wheel puller - due to the fact your bearings are pressed on. If you are unfamiliar with this process (and the finer points of putting it all back together) I strongly suggest you find someone who has to help you, or get it done professionally. You really don't want your wheel falling off whilst driving.....

Is it hard to change brake pads and rotors on a 2006 hyundai santa fe


it shoule be a easy enough fix for someone with mechanical apptitude. just quickly running thru it, jack up vehicle, be sure to use proper support, jack stands ect remove tire, remove caliper bolts(these should be smaller metric hex bolts), remove caliper bracket, rotors are hat style so there is no need to remove large axle nut, generally a large hammer makes quick work of loosening rotors from hub. if reusing rotors may not be best option, push back caliper piston with c-clamp, and reverse process to reassemble. keep in mind brakes are very important and if unsure on not confident please seek a proffesional for repair. hope this helps, also check you tube for insructional videos.

Changing the rotors how do you get them off


remove the wheel, remove the brake caliper (whole) just remove the two mounting bolts that hold it to the "hub"
theres one or two screws in the face of the rotor, unscrew them, pull it off - a rubber mallet might help!
Clean up the hub with a wire brush before fitting the new rotor. screw in the 2 screws on the face of the new rotor. Fit new brake pads and squeeze the pistons open to slide the caliper and pads over the new rotor, refit the two mounting bolts to the brake caliper, press the brake pedal to seat the pads on the rotor. refit and tighten the wheel, go for short drive and test the brake gently, if all is fine start on the second rotor, just repeat the process again.
LEAVE FEEDBACK PLEASE! Good Or Bad.

Truck shakes when brake is applied at red lights


You need to change your brake pads/rotors on the front of the vehicle. Somehow, it sounds like your rotors have become scored and you need to change them out to get the shaking to go away. You also need to change the pads since the pads on there now are worked into the old rotors. Change those out and your brakes will be good to go. Let me know if you have any further questions about this. Thanks for rating my response and for using fixYa

Removing the front brake rotor from the hub housing


You need to take the rotor/hub off the spindle.So you'll need to remove the wheel bearings in order for it to come off. Once off theres bolts in the back of the rotors bolted to the hub.
