Removing Brake rotors

Post by Rez » Wed Mar 03, 2010 4:19 pm

I need some help in regards to removing my front brake rotor :guns: . It seems to be somewhat rusty near the hub assembly. How many people can provide me with some PROVEN methods for removing the rotor :thumbup: .

If it makes a difference which I'm sure it doesn't it's the 11" rotor on the front of my Bronco. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The rotor and hub are pressed together and remove as an assembly. If you need a new rotor, take the rotor/hub assembly to an auto parts store and have them pressed apart and the new hub pressed on. They will be able to resurface the rotor on the hub if that's all you need.

If I remember right you need a special large spindle socket to remove the spindle. You may be able to borrow one from NAPA auto store.

You can buy the socket at most parts stores. It's a good tool to own.
