    Hi all,
    I am replacing the front pads and rotors on my brother in laws 1998 toyota tacoma 4x2. He has a 5 lug wheel up front. One of the rotors is totally shot. How do I get the darn things off?
    Do I have to pull the grease cap? It looks like the wheel bolts are sitting on an adapter that is bolted to the rotor. How do I get that part off?

    Thanks,
    D

    Weathertech liners, bed mat, rear spring TSB, extra 12V outlets in center console, seat belt chime off
    1. remove grease cap
    2. remove cotter pin
    3. remove nut
    4. remove/pull out front bearing
    5. remove hub assembly/rotor (it's all one piece)
    6. remove seal from rear of assembly
    7. remove rear bearing

    to reassemble:

    1. repack bearing with grease
    2. insert rear bearing, then tap in NEW seal (don't reuse old one!)
    3. slide assembly back on truck
    4. insert front bearing
    5. tighten nut - this is a delicate procedure. i go tight, spin in a few times, then back it off until there is a small amount of "play" then retighten a little. hard to explain, hopefully you can "feel it"
    6. insert NEW cotter pin
    7. pound on grease cap

    or something like that...
