U Shouldnt have to remove the "center nut," that's the nut that holds the drive shaft in. I hope you have a book as it is set to a specific torq. Now sometimes depending how old the rotors are you might find it helpful to knock around the edges with a hammer. If your reusing use a rubber mallet. But your tacking them off so I'm guessing your replacing. So beat em off. There just stuck on. Also you might have to remove the caliper mount bracket. Not to sure if 06 has this. But the rotor has to slip on and off straight and a caliper mount bracket can keep you from doing this. good luck!

Replace front brake rotor


Remove wheel, Remove brake caliper, remove brake caliper bracket, depending on which setup it is, either the rotor will just slide off now, or it will have a grease cap on the front, peck it off with a regular screwdriver and hammer, pull the big cotter pin, remove nut, then take off rotor, bearings will come out with rotor, if the bearings are good repack them with grease, and pack the front cap with grease when you put it back together.. just barely snug the nut, dont tighten it up. put the cotter cap and pin back in, tap the grease cap back on, bolt caliper bracket back on, put caliper with pads back on, put wheel back on, and your done.. hopefully you have the easy setup where you just pull the caliper bracket off, and put the new rotor on... but if it were me and you had my luck, you wouldnt have that model lol. hope this helps, and if you need any more help, feel free to ask, id be happy to assist you.

Changing front brake rotor on 1995 honda passport


Put the parking brake On and jack up the front of your SUV.

Remove the lug nuts and you will be able to remove the tire and rimm by sliding them off.Remove the spindle bolt located at the center of the rotor using an 36 mm socket(approx).

Remove the two nuts located behind the rotor (one at top and other at the bottom). This will enable you to remove the brake caliper.While removing it be careful that the caliper tube stays straight.

Slide under your passport and remove the 4 bolts behind the hub using an 12 mm(approx) wrench.Pull the hub assembly out and this will remove the hub rotor in some cases if you are using an tool for pulling the hub assembly out or you have to slide the rotor off the hub assembly.

Slide the new rotor into the hub assembly.Reinstall the brake caliper and make sure the caliper tube is not twisted. Replace the spindle bolt.

How do you replace the front rotors on an 1999 Chevy express van 1500?


REMEMBER TO REPLACE THE PADS AS WELL, NO USED PADS ON NEW ROTORS.

Raise the vehicle and support on jack stands. Remove the wheels. Place the drip pan under the caliper. Loosen the 10 mm bleeder screw on the top of the caliper.
  • Step 2 Spread the brake pads apart with the common screwdriver. Place the screwdriver in the slot in the center of the caliper where the pads can be seen. With the nose of the screwdriver, pry between the rotor and the pad and pull the caliper outward toward you. The piston is being depressed into its housing as the caliper is pulled out. When the caliper comes to its limit outward, push the caliper back away from you and insert the screwdriver into the inside pad between the pad and the rotor. Once again pull the screwdriver toward you until the caliper piston is compressed into its bore.
  • Step 3 Tighten the 10 mm bleeder screw. Remove the caliper and support it where it is not hanging on the brake hose. Letting the caliper hang on the brake hose will damage the hose and cause brake failure.
  • Step 4 Remove the caliper support if it interferes with the removal of the rotor. Some vehicles don't require the removal of the support. Remove the rotor by pulling it off. If it is stuck, hit it with a hammer a few times between the studs.
  • Step 5 Install the caliper support and caliper in the reverse order they were taken off. Install the wheels and let the vehicle down. Check the brake fluid and fill as necessary to the proper level.
  • Step 6 Start the vehicle and pump the brakes very slowly until you have a high pedal. Remember that by expanding the calipers they have to re-adjust. You will not have any braking when you first start the car. Do not try to move the car until you have pumped the brake pedal sufficiently to feel a firm pedal.

  • Step 3 Tighten the 10 mm bleeder screw. Remove the caliper and support it where it is not hanging on the brake hose. Letting the caliper hang on the brake hose will damage the hose and cause brake failure.
  • Step 4 Remove the bearing cap in the center of the rotor. Remove the cotter pin. Remove the large nut that retains the bearings and rotor. Wobble the rotor with your hands and the front bearing will come out.
  • Step 5 Reinstall the spindle nut with just a few threads. Grabbing the rotor with both hands, pull the rotor off with slight down pressure and with a quick ****. The spindle nut will grab the rear bearing and seal as you pull the rotor off and come out at the same time.
  • Step 6 Install the bearings into the new rotor. Grease the bearings first and install the rear large bearing then install the grease seal with the hammer. Install the rotor on the spindle and insert the front small bearing followed by the large washer and the retaining nut.
  • Step 7 Tighten the retaining nut just until there is no longer any freeplay then tighten an additional 90 degrees. Do not over tighten the retaining nut as it will not allow the bearings to expand and they will wear out rapidly. Install the cotter pin.
  • Step 8 Install the caliper support and caliper in the reverse order they were taken off. Install the wheels and let the vehicle down. Check the brake fluid and fill as necessary to the proper level.
  • Step 9 Start the vehicle and pump the brakes very slowly until you have a high pedal. Remember that by expanding the calipers they have to re-adjust. You will not have any braking when you first start the car. Do not try to move the car until you have pumped the brake pedal sufficiently to feel a firm pedal

    How to removal front rotor 2001 jeep grand cherokee


    Normally, to remove a front rotor you remove tire, then must remove the caliper.

    To remove caliper, there are two screws that the caliper is secured with that are accessed from the back side of the caliper. Unscrew these, pull all of the way out. The caliper should then be free to be slid out of it's position and off of the rotor. You'll need to support the caliper somehow. Most magazine show using heavy wire to hang it, I often take a small bucket upside down to set it on so the brake hose is not stressed.

    Most front wheel drive & I think 4-WD vehicles, the rotor will slip right off. If not and there is a grease cup covering the center of the hub, will need to pop this off with a screw driver. Then remove the retaining clip that is inserted thru the threaded shaft to prevent the nut that is exposed from working it's way loose. Remove the nut, and now the rotor will come right off.

    Re-assembling this nut at the right torgue is a key to getting everything back together properly. Too tight, you burn up the bearings and hurt fuel economy. Too loose and the tire wobbles, excessive wear, lot of issues.

    Remove front rotor on 91 f250 4x4 manual lock out


    I must be missing something. It should be fairly straightforward. It is pretty much just unpinning the brake caliper and hanging it so that it's weight is supported and removing the brake rotor. Put down the Chilton manual that you are using and go to the autozone.com website and register the truck. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual. The steps for changing the brake rotors can be found there. There are pics and diagrams and the steps for removing the caliper/pads and brake rotor can be found there. (unless I am missing something) Hope this helped and best wishes.

    It sounds like your hub/rotor is froze on....you'll need to apply some penetrant in the lug stud areas as wells as the area where the rotor mates to the axle hub.

    I need to know the procedure for r and r on a front rotor if this is something that can be done at home with limited tools?


    1999 Taurus/Sable Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1999 Taurus/Sable Workshop Manual REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Procedure revision date: 06/25/1998 Disc Removal
    1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
    1. Remove wheel and tire assembly. Be careful to avoid damage or interference with caliper bleeder screw fitting and front disc brake rotor shield (2K004).
    1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Handle front disc brake rotor (1125) and disc brake caliper (2B120) assembly in such a way as to prevent deformation of front disc brake rotor , and nicking, scratching or contamination of brake linings/rotor surfaces.
      NOTE: To prevent damage, do not allow disc brake caliper to hang by the front brake hose (2078) .


      Remove caliper anchor plate bolts and discard. Position disc brake caliper out of the way. Prevent separation of caliper housing from anchor bracket because contamination of guide pin journals can occur.
    1. NOTE: If excessive force must be used during front disc brake rotor removal, the front disc brake rotor should be checked for runout prior to installation.


      If additional force is required to remove front disc brake rotor , apply Rust Penetrant and Inhibitor F2AZ-19A501-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M99C56-A on front and rear rotor/hub mating surfaces. First, strike front disc brake rotor between lug bolts (1107) with a plastic hammer. If this does not work, attach 2-3 Jaw Puller 205-D027 (D80L-1013-A) or equivalent and remove front disc brake rotor . Remove front disc brake rotor from wheel hub (1104) assembly by pulling it off the lug bolts.
    Installation
    1. If original front disc brake rotor is being installed, make sure rotor braking and mounting surfaces are clean.
    1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Failure to clean rust and foreign material from rotor and hub mounting faces when installing new or old front disc brake rotors will result in high rotor runout, which will speed up the development of brake roughness shudder vibration.
      Apply a small amount of Silicone Brake Caliper Grease and Dielectric Compound D7AZ-19A331-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M1C171-A to pilot diameter of front disc brake rotor.
    1. Install front disc brake rotor on wheel hub assembly.
    1. Install disc brake caliper and new caliper anchor bracket bolts on front disc brake rotor . Tighten caliper anchor bracket bolts to 88-118 Nm (65-87 lb-ft).
    1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Failure to tighten lug nuts (1012) in a star pattern may result in high rotor runout, which will speed up the development of brake roughness, shudder and vibration.
      Install wheel and tire assembly on vehicle. Tighten lug nuts to 115-142 Nm (85-104 lb-ft) using Rotunda Accutorq® Lug Nut Socket 164-R0303 or equivalent on a 1/2 inch air impact wrench, or use a torque wrench.
    1. Lower vehicle.
    1. Pump brake pedal prior to moving vehicle to position brake linings.

    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.
