How To Remove a Seized Brake Rotor

Created on: 2012-05-19

Just a quick video showing you one way to get a Rear Disc off when it is rusted to the axle. This works in many occasions but may not work when there is extreme rust or corrosion. This is a general-vehicle video.

  1. step 1 :Removing the Brake Rotor
    • Apply rust penetrant to the brake rotor
    • Strike the rotor with a hammer, being careful not to hit the studs
    • Pull the rotor off

After you have the caliper off, coat with penetrating oil around the wheel studs and the center. To get this apart, use a nice big hammer. Avoid hitting your lugs. You just want to hit the rotor itself. The rotor comes off.
