I destroyed one on my Audi that way. What you should do is go at it from the opposite side. Find a way to gain access to the inside of the hub (axle must be removed from the hub first), and gently tap it out. I did this on the next Audi I worked on, and by using a 6" 3/8 drive extension, I was able to put the extension on the sensor's head (inside the hub), and tap it out gently, and it came right out. Try removing it from the body of the sensor outside the hub, and you'll destroy it trying to remove it.

How do I get the front brake rotor off of a 2006 GMC Canyon 2 WD?


Tools Required:

Lug Removal Tool
Impact Gun(Recommended)
Sockets.. Lots of metric sockets
Ratchets
Wrenches
Porta Power(hydraulic piston) --- THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT... use to press hub off..
LOTS OF PATIENCE


Instructions:

1) Jack vehicle and support on jack stands.

2) Remove front tire.

3) Remove Front Brake caliper.. hang on frame using a bungee or other support
Important to not stress hose.

4) Remove brake pad support.

5) Remove 4 bolts from rear of hub.

6) Undo bolt for ABS sensorfrom frame, undo all clips holding wire.
Crawl under truckand unclip wire connector(trace wire from the ABS sensorto find it)

7) Make sure wire is unclipped from the frame and will not bind on removal of hub. (Prevents Damage of ABS sensor)

icon_cool.gif.pagespeed.ce.l5kzkvpb-u.gifTRICKY PART: Turn the wheels so that you can use the hydraulic porta-power against where the lower control arm mountsto the front. (Turn the
wheel left). Position porta-power to be placed inside dimple of the middle of the hub. DO NOT DAMAGE ABS SENSOR...
Pump Porta-power until hub "Pops".. be extremely careful removing the hub not to damage the ABS wireat all.. It is easy to break and not notice (I did
this and had to resplice it)

9) Hub should be removed from vehicle by this point and you can remove the six bolts holding the old rotor on. Still be careful not to damage the sensor.

10) Change the rotor. (do not use impact gun to reattach.. may strip threads)

11) Installation is basically reverse of removal.

12) Install brake pads, press caliper back in (typical brake job)

13) Put tire back on.. do other side.. and you're done.

Right front wheel bearing is bad how do I change it


  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely. Place jackstands under the frame, then lower the vehicle slightly to allow the control arms to hang free.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning, then remove the hub/drive axle nut. Clean the threads of the nut.
    1. Unfasten the caliper mounting bolts, then remove and support the caliper aside with a suitable piece of wire.
    2. Remove the rotor by sliding it from the hub.
    3. If equipped with ABS, detach the front wheel speed sensor connector and unclip it from the dust shield.

    The hub and bearing are replaced only as an assembly.
    For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
  4. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub from the halfshaft.
  5. Remove the hub and bearing retaining bolts, shield, hub and bearing assembly and the O-ring.
  6. Separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle, using the proper tool.
  7. Remove the halfshaft assembly and tap the seal from the steering knuckle. Remove the steering knuckle from the hub.
  8. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Unfasten the hub and bearing retaining bolts and dust shield.
    2. Place the transaxle in PARK.
    3. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub and bearing from the drive axle.
    4. If necessary, remove the steering knuckle.

  9. Clean the rust and foreign material from the knuckle mounting face, bore and chamfer to allow the bearing to properly seat in the knuckle.
To install:
  1. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. If removed, install the steering knuckle.
    2. Position the hub and bearing assembly to the drive axle. Apply a light coating of grease to the knuckle bore. If the new hub and bearing has a protective plastic cover, remove it before installation. Also, do not handle the knuckle or hub assembly by the ABS sensor wire.
    3. Install a new drive axle nut and draw the hub and bearing onto the axle.
    4. Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
    5. Install the dust shield, being careful not to damage the bearing outboard lip seal.
    6. Install the hub and bearing bolts, then tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

  2. For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Install a new hub and bearing seal in the steering knuckle with a suitable seal installation tool. Install the steering knuckle to the strut.
    2. Lubricate the hub and bearing with grease. Fill the cavity between the seal and bearing completely.
    3. Install the halfshaft.
    4. Connect the ball joint to the steering knuckle and insert a new O-ring around the hub and bearing assembly.
    5. Install the hub and bearing, and shield into the steering knuckle. Tighten the bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (90 Nm).

  3. If equipped, attach the ABS front wheel speed sensor connector, then clip the wire to the dust shield.
  1. Install the rotor and caliper assembly. Tighten the caliper bolts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm).
  2. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning. If not already done, install the shaft washer and nut (if equipped). Tighten the nut to the following specifications:
  3. 1987-88 vehicles: 3 ft. lbs. (270 Nm).
  4. 1989-90 vehicles: 15 ft. lbs. (260 Nm).
  5. 1991-99 vehicles: 107 ft. lbs. (145 Nm).
