Can you unbolt the rotors or do you need to press the rotors to change them?
(1) Answer
The rotor is bolted to the back side of the wheel hub flange (the surface to which the wheel is mounted) so the hub assembly must be removed to replace the front rotors. This is why most shops use an "on-the-car" brake lathe when machining the brake rotors. Removing the rotors is not as convenient as other models.
