Changing Rotors on my 06

I am a fairly new member, but i read a lot of posts and I love the website. I have done other brake jobs and have never had any issues. I got the wheel off and the caliper off, but how do I get the rotor off? Do i need to take the axle nut off? And if so does anyone know what size of socket for the Axel nut. That looks like what i have to do. But I rather get input first before I maybe do an extra step. Thank You for your time guys.

Re: Changing Rotors on my 06

there is an o-ring holding it on. get a small pick to remove it.

Re: Changing Rotors on my 06

and then put them back with the new rotors although they arent necessary except to hold the rotor on while the caliper is off. so if you didnt have them, its not a huge issue.

Re: Changing Rotors on my 06

It may take some coercion after you remove the o-ring too but you shouldn't have to remove the axle nut.

Re: Changing Rotors on my 06

as mentioned, the rubber o-ring isn't necessary to put back on, but you definately need to take it off to remove the rotor

Get a dead blow hammer or rubber mallet and give them a few real good whacks.. That got mine off.

Re: Changing Rotors on my 06

what the aboves are saying is that even after the o-ring is off, SOMETIMES the rotor is still difficult to remove. what happened is that it has galled to the hub. (meaning its stuck) and using a dead blow hammer will help to break it loose. galling is a reaction between 2 different metals, anyway, just give it a good whack an it will come loose.
