They are pressed on, I have had to always take in to a shop in order to replace the rotor, some shops cant even get them off. Huge pain. I have always like this truck and have over 208k miles on it, but the brakes and the coolant system have always needed attention. GM underbraked this truck. .

You have to remove the hub bearing assy on these models to get the rotor off. The rotor comes off from the back of the hub. The design makes it physically impossible to do it any other way. Look for photos of the hub assy. and the rotor and you will see what I mean.

How do you change rotor on 1987 Monte Carlo?

You didn't specify brake rotor or ignition rotor. If it's the brake rotor, remove the front wheel, remove the brake caliper, remove the bearing dust cap, remove the cotter pin, and then remove the castle nut, this will free up the rotor to be removed from the spindle. While it's off you may as well replace the wheel bearings. If its the ignotion rotor you simply remove the distributor cap, and then two screws hold the rotor on.


How do I get the front rotor off of an 2006 Chevy Silverado?

Loosen lug nuts. Jack up vehicle, support on jack stand. Remove wheel. I like to spray down the entire brake assembly with brake cleaner first, have a catch bucket underneath. Remove caliper body. Remove rotor. Installation is the reverse of removal. You may have to remove the brake pads in order to depress the caliper piston to get the caliper back over the new rotor (depending on how worn your old rotor is)
