Once the caliper is off and the rotor won`t come off then you will have to hit the rotor with a hammer near the wheel studs to loosen it from rust.

How to remove front axle

first and foremost "brake" the lug nuts loose,then you are going to want lift the front of the vehicle using a quality jack and support the front of the vehicle with approved jack stands(don\'t forget to set the parking brake!) . remove front wheels,then if a impact gun is not available have a friend hold their foot on the brake .now using a braker bar and the proper socket "brake" the axle nut(in the center of the brake rotor) loose . now your home free- remove lower ball joint and tie rod end nuts and remove tie rod and ball joint from spindle( the parts with the brake rotor and caliper on it)by tapping rather hard on the side of them both with a ballpeen hammer(at this point they should just"pop" out of their sockets).now holding spindle by the brake rotor swing it outward while pushing "in" on the end of the threads for the axle . with the axle now out of the spindle with a small pry bar reach in between where the axle meets the transmission (be careful not to damage seal by using a flashlight to keep an eye on what your pry rather forcefully and the axle when"pop" out. make sure and have a shallow drin pan under the trans as when you take the axle out fluid will follow.reverse the procedure and don\'t forget to top-off the trans fluid.even if none came out during axle install it is always a great idea to check this fluid when doing axles as fluid is a lot cheaper than a trans.

How remove the rotor to change bearing for 2005 chev colorado front

first you remove all the lug nuts and the wheel and tire. To get the rotor off you will need to remove the brake caliper. they are held in with 1/4" hex screws. If you don't have an allen wrench you can use a socket extension to removes these. Once unscrewed the calpet simply lifts off the rotor and the rotor is ready to come off. You will need to remove the axle nut and keeper then the rotor slides off towards you and the wheel bearings will come out with the rotor.

Need to change a front wheel it hard to do myself?

moz-screenshot-2.png-Jack up the car
-remove the tire, 19mm socket
-remove the brake caliper, its either an 18mm or 15mm socket that will remove the bracket bolts.
-remove the rotor
-remove the axle nut, its either a 34 or 36 mm
-unplug ABS sensor connector if equipped
-remove the three bolts that hold the bearing/hub assembly to the knuckle, a 13mm socket will work
Remove the wheel bearing.

It is important to tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to do so will cause the new bearing to fail. you will need a 1/2" torque wrench for this.

To make removing and installing the axle nut easier place a punch in the fins of the rotor and rotate the rotor until the punch rests on the caliper (it doesn't hurt to put a couple lug nuts on to hold the caliper tight to the hub). This will hold the hub in place while you looses and tighten the axle nut.

How do you remove the rotors from a 1991 honda accord?

Loosen both front wheel lug nuts and raise car and support on jack stands. Remove wheels and have a friend hold brake pedal down and remove axle nut. Use a chisel or screwdriver to remove stake on nut to axle edge. I use a 3/4 drive set socket and remove axle nut. Rent it from Autozone. Remove caliper assy and support with coat hanger or bungee cord to hold weight of assy off of brake hose. Remove Cotter pin and nut on lower control arm. Separate with ball joint fork and pull strut assy away to the side while pulling stub axle through and out of the way. Remove 4 bolts holding rotor and hub assy. on the inside of steering knuckle and separate. Now remove 4 bolts on hub's outer side and separate rotor and hub. You can use a bar or large screwdriver between wheel studs to loosen the 4 bolts.

How do you remove the rotors on a 1995 ford bronco

The rotors on most vehicles are removed by (1) removing the wheel, (2) remove the silver colored cap in the center of the hub, (3) remove the cotter pin that goes through the axle nut and axle, (4) remove the axle nut, (5) remove the disc brake caliper (6) now pull on the rotor. It should slide off the axle. Reassemble in reverse order, being sure that the axle bearings are in place with proper amount of grease.

Which direction to turn nut when removing brake rotors on 1998 Chevy Metro clockwise or counter

All brake parts are counter clockwise. But what nut are you talking about. Not the axle nut? That doesn't come off. Rotor pops off after caliper is removed.

I belive that my axel is bent I need to replace it but I don't know how i am trying to find a blue print to show me step by step

lossen the large retainer nut that holds the axle through the brake rotor. than lossen up the lower ball joint nut, seperate the lower ball joint from the steering knuckle. slide out the strut enough to slip the axle out of the brake rotor. now with a large screw driver or pry bar placed between the axle and the trans axle, pop the old axle out. it's held in place with a c clip attached to the inner cv joint spline. reassemble in reverse order.
good luck chris

Brake rotor replacement on 2004 matrix

If you are talking about the brake rotors, you do NOT remove the 30 mm nut. That nut just holds the axle shaft to the hub. Remove the caliper and the caliper bracket, the rotor should come off, you may have to tap the brake rotor to dislodge it from the center hub.
