1992 Toyota Corolla Question: Removing a front brake disc

 

Question

Visitor, 1.6L 4 Cylinder, Spencer, IN, February 21, 2011, 18:29

I'm having great difficulty in removing the front brake disc. The two holes for threading screws in for removal are now stripped out. I have tried using heat on the disc while striking with a sledge hammer. I have tried using a two-pronged puller to no avail also. Any good tips on getting it off?

    Try to get penetrating fluid between the disc and the hub surface. Clean it off with brake cleaner after removal. Sometime it gets real hard to remove it due to corrosion, but you just need to keep trying.
