How do you remove the brake rotors on a 2002 Kia Sportage 4 wheel drive vehicle?
hello, to remove the brake rotors on a 2001, 1. jack and remove wheels; 2. there are two large bolts that hold the entire brake caliper on; on a 2001 they are 19mm. Get a cheater bar on it because they are well-torqued. 3. step #2 will allow you to remove the caliper assembly and tie it out of the way. 4. you will now find two large Phillips (cross tip) screws hold the rotor on...remove them. 5. get the WD40 and spray the base of the lugs and around the bearing housing. 6. time for a big rubber mallet and you can pry gently while hitting...it will likely be rusted in place...don't loose patience it may take at little time to break it free.
hope it helps. Joe
FTI. the screws you removed in 4 are used to pop the rotor loose. Instead of prying and using a mallet, you will notice two threaded screw holes in the rotor (not the ones you took the screws out of. If you screw the screws your removed into these holes they will bottom against the flange on the other side of the rotor. Tighten them both, and the force will pop the rotor loose. This works like a charm and you don't have to pound on your bearing housing.
