I am trying to replace the brakes and rotors on my 2000 ford f-150 Harley Davidson. The rotors won't come off. Took off the brakes and the claiper bracket and the screw with the attched hose. There is a cap at the end of the rotor that I think covers the ball bearrings. How can I safely replace the rotors. They are really stuck.

Remove the center dust cap, split pin, outer taper roller bearing and with draw the brake rotor assembly, proper procedures must be followed to adjust the front wheel bearing on reassembly to avoid damage to the wheel bearings and spindle. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website or there is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription.
