Question Asked: Brake rotor
September 05, 2009, 04:10 PM
Unable to remove the bracket the the front discs attach to so that I can remove the rotor. Can the bolts be that secure? Do I need a torch? Not enough room to put a pipe over the wrench for leverage.

The bracket that the disc brakes attach to our held to the hub with metric bolts. Usually 17mm. The rotors almost always weld themselves to the hub due to rust. You might be able to squirt some penetrating oil behind but either way whacking it equally with a hammer will cause them to come loose. Most mechanics have a variety of hammers for delicate work like this. I'm assuming you are replacing the old rotors with new.

I have re-applied this panel on my daughters Escape at least three times with various spray adhesives. Looks great for a few days and than falls off. I guess the experts are right and other than buying an entire door panel from someone, I don't have the solution...yet.
