I assume that you have removed the wheel and so on. In order to remove the rotor you will have to remove the caliper and its bracket. Only after you will be able to remove the rotor.

Remove the wheel, remove the brake caliper and the caliper adapter bracket, pull the rotor off of the wheel studs.

Remove the caliper, remove the caliper bracket, and remove speed clips that hold rotor. If the rotor is stuck , take a hammer and hit it squarely between the wheel studs.

You usually have to take off the brake caliper, then the caliper mounting bracket to free the rotor.

Remove the front wheel then remove the 2 caliper bracket bolts behind the rotor and the rotor should slide off.

Remove the tire and wheel from your 1993 Chevy Lumina. Remove the brake assembly spring and the brake caliper. The brake assembly will come off. Tap on the rotor with a hammer or mallet. The rotor will slide off. Reverse the process to change the new rotor and brakes.


The Rotor has a small bolt that holds the Rotor on the shaft. Did you Loosen this bolt?

There should be 2 screws on the front of the rotor, remove those and the rotor should come right also have to take off the caliper bracket.

1.Take off the tire... there will be little washers ont the wheel studs remove and discard there not needed 2.Take the caliper off the mounting bracket 3.remove the bracket ...and pull off the rotor

That's an easy one. Remove the tires and the brake calipers, the rotor simply slides off the lug studs at that point. To remove the calipers, there are 2 bolts on the back of the bracket that holds it in place. There is one at the top and one at the bottom. The caliper can be lifted out of the bracket once they are removed.

Front or rear, remove wheel, remove caliper, remove caliper bracket, remove rotor.

First loosen lug nuts while vehicle on ground (dont remove all the way). lift front of vehicle remove lugnuts remove caliper mounting bracket 2 bolts, require 15mm socket remove caliper bracket from rotor rotor is ready for removal

remove the 2 18mm bolts off the caliper bracket, remove caliper, slide off rotor

take the wheel off, remove brake caliper, remove brake caliper bracket and pull the rotor toward you or use a hammer. its not bolted on. it just sits on there.

simply remove the bolts that hold the caliper and pads on......then there are two 15 or 16 mm bolts that hold a bracket on...remove these...After the caliper,pads,and this bracket are out of the way, simply pull the rotor off....To replace it just reverse the steps...

You first remove the caliper, then the caliper mounting bracket. Then the rotor is free.

The caliper mounting bracket, in 99% of vehicles, needs to be unbolted from the axle before it will release the rotor. There are usually only two bolts holding it. Sometimes you can remove the top bolt, loosen the bottom and swing the mounting bracket out of the way. Sometimes you have to take both bolts completely out and dismount the bracket.

Remove the 2 bolts from the caliper and then the 2 to the caliper bracket and just take off your rotor. Installation is in reverse of removal. Just make sure to put anti-seize on the bolts before putting them back in

The complete hub and rotor assembly have to be removed in order to drive out wheel studs to separate the rotor from the hub. So, remove wheel, remove caliper, remove caliper bracket, remove axle retaining nut, remove 4 bolts holding hub assembly to spindle, dissconnect ABS sensor harness, remove hub assembly, remove all wheel studs then separate rotor from hub.

If you're asking how to change the condenser, it is under the rotor. Remove cap and rotor, remove condenser wire from contact set (either held in place with a screw or spring tension), remove the screw that holds the condenser bracket ( magnet or screw starter is very helpful), then reverse procedure to install new condenser.

Straight forward - only problem you may run into is the bolt that holds the the rotor. You will need an Allen Bit 7mm to remove the rotor.

Remove the caliper.Remover the brake rotor.Tap the axle free from the rotor.Then unbolt the bearing assembly from the backside of the bracket.

AnswerRemove wheel Remove caliper (2 15 mm head bolts) Remove caliper mounting bracket ( requires special large torx socket, forget exact size, available at Sears) Rotor will now fall off practically. after machining or replacement, reverse process above. Should take less than an hourThe torx socket size is T-60.
