Im doing the brakes on the rear and cant get the rotor off. I broke a sledge trying to get it to pop off. I dont have a bolt to stick in there to tighten down but seeing as how the whole sledge went im not sure that would work either. Anyone have another thought on this?

The bolt actually works really well since it puts pressure on the right places to pop it free





you can also get leverage on a bolt that you wont get w/ a hammer...

The screws you removed should fit into that other hole to pop them off, if I recall.

damn you guys are weak. since youre giving up just go spray around where the hub sticks through the rotor with wd40 and let it soak over night. then tomorrow spray some more on and the front face of the rotor hat, then after hitting it a good number of times move onto hitting the actually braking surface of the rotor.



if you have a nice 3lb sledge you should break the rotor in half before you break the sledge (ive done this, certain fords have impossible to remove rotors) but chances are the rotor will pop off.



also you sure you got the whole screw out and some little piece isnt holding it on?
