I'm a little confused; are you trying to remove the 36mm axle nut. If not I can't figure out what you would be using a breaker bar and a large socket for. Are you trying to take off the wheels or the caliper mounting bracket?

The rotors come off relatively easily: remove the wheel, brake caliper, caliper mounting bracket and the alignment stud on the face of the rotor and most rotors will come off with a few slight "love" taps with a mallet.

plus one

the only thing holding a rotor on is the caliper and that little stud

Bay 13 is very clear about this

sounds like what you are doing wrong is, trying to remove your axles to replace your rotors.

The bracket and caliper should be off. Do not touch the center piece with the pin. After that, it should pull right off, if not, knock it off with a hammer.

heres the deal, get the rotor pin off that holds the rotor on the hub (Not the Axle Nut the small pin that lines up with your wheels) take off the caliper (obviously) if it doesn’t fall right off your going to have to find your buddie who doubles as an H addict and have him crawl under your car with a sledge hammer or similar blunt object and have him hammer that little rusted sucker off. it took a solid 20 30 throws from my H buddie before mine fell off (the fronts a least) the rears came right off.

the shocks work by the way, hope they last! don’t forget the anti squeal goop to!!

you may need to loosen the adjuster for the parking brakes...but I'd get the Big Hammer out first.

until you put in 10% of the time and effort that went into Bay 13, any comments like these will have ZERO merit...STFU n00b's :angry:
