    What's the secret for removing 2005 Tacoma 6 lug front rotors? Changing first time after 73K miles and cant get them off. Caliper is out of the way. Thanks.

    getting there....
    may be able to tap the top part with a hammer....they probably have a bit of rust holding them on.

    Thanks Tacomaman06. Tried that. Even put a little WD40 in the seam to try and loosen things up a little. Must be stubborn rust. Just wanted to make sure I wasnt missing something.

    I have not seen the rotors of my truck yet, but some of the vehicles I have worked on have some holes drilled and tapped that allow you to insert a screw and "drive" the rotor off. Hope this helps, Jesse
