In order to change rotors on these you will need to remove the axle nut. Then remove the for bolts that hold the bearing to h knuckle onth back side of the knuckle. Then you can remove the rotor, bearing, hub assembly from the knuckle. Then remove the four bolts that hold the rotor to the hub and then you can finally remove the rotor. I will add that it is easier to do this with the knuckle removed from the vehice. You will need to tap the wheel bearing out of the knuckle and sometimes this will ruin the bearing so plan on replacing that at the same time.

How to replace right front wheel bearing Pontiac trans am 1996

Remove caliper, and tie it up off to the side being careful of brake line.
Remove brake rotor. Locate the hole in the face of the mating flange the rotor bottoms out against when wheels are bolted on. Through that hole you will see 4 bolts that attach the hub assembly to the steering knuckle- remove these 4 bolts then anything still holding the hub in place will be rust and dirt. Remove hub, check the knuckle for cracks or damge and replace if there is any. Otherwise if it checks okay, cleann the surface where the hub bolts to, and install hub. For safety, apply some medium duty thread locking compound to those 4 mounting bolts, and install to 63 pounds/feet of torque. Or 84.4 Newton Meters.

Install the pads and install brake caliper and tighten to 38 pounds feet of torque or 51.5 Newron meters.

Reinstall wheel and tire assembly.

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.

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 to replace 1996 accord front disc rotors , as this year model is hard to remove rotors , please help

You must have what they call "trapped rotors" on your car.First thing is to jack the car,remove the wheel,unbolt the axle nut,remove the calliper and bracket and hang caliper out of the way with a bungi cord.Next look behind the steering knuckle where the axle goes through the hub and from back there you should see 4 bolts holding the wheel bearing hub assembly to the steering knuckle.You will need to remove the 4 bolts and very carfully remove the wheel bearing hub assembly from the knuckle.If the car has the dust shield you may have to remove the 2 phillips head screws to remove the shield and the hub assembly together.(If the car has ABS please be carfull not to hurt the wires going to it these may have to be unplugged and moved also)After you have the bearing assy. out remove the 4 bolts holding the rotor to the hub.Now you will notice the funny shapped hole in the center of the rotor where you can turn it to fit over the flange where you bolt the bearing to the car and there you go the rotor is off. REMEMBER NOT TO HIT ON THE HUB WHERE THE WHEEL BOLTS ON TO REMOVE THE BEARING ASSEMBLEY FROM THE CAR.THIS WILL DAMAGE THE BEARING!!!!!!! Also remember to re torque bearing to proper specs so bearing doesn't get damaged as you drive. (181 ft.lbs.)

Need to remove and replace rear rotor

You have to remove the axle shafts first as it has a full-floating axle, then pull rotor and hub off the axle housing. Unbolt rotors from hub. Check bearings and seals in hubs and the axle snouts where the bearings run before installing. Put new flange gaskets on axle and torque flange bolts to 95 ft-lbs.
