    I am right in the middle of putting some new brake pads on and I need to turn my rotors. I got the spindle nut off the axle and now how the hell do I get the rotor piece off the damn axle/hub. I dont know if it is just supposed to pull off or am I missing something because every other one I have done you bang the hub with a hammer and the rotor piece slides off.


    The describe probably sucks in this thread but im tryin to beat the rain and get this done haha

    So let me know if you have takin your rotors off before and how the hell you got it off

    Thanks

    you dont need to take the spindle nut off at all. take the caliper off and hang it with a coat hanger....then, the rotor will come off. you may need to tap the top with a hammer a bit, but it should just slide off the lugs.

    But dont the bearings ride inside the hub and you have to pull that spindle nut off so the bearings can slide out?

    And im sure since this thing is a toyota it will be on there tighter then hell but Ill go beat on it some more and see what happens.

    no..., the sealed bearings are inside the hub, which is behind the rotor, so basically the rotor is free until you put the caliper back on. the wheel/lugnuts/caliper/pads hold the rotor in place.
