I Have Troubles With Removing My Rotors

Recommended Posts

That could be your issue. If you were sitting in the engine compartment, looking out at the bracket, it would loosen in a counter clockwise direction, or put another way, if your breaker bar was on the bolt head and pointing out toward the front of the car you would lift the breaker bar up to loosen the bolt.

On the drivers side though, you can only get to the bolts from the rear of the wheel well. This means the breaker bar would've been in th eright position to push down on it no doubt. Get more leverage and they'll break loose.

"Plz explain how to remove the rotors. bay 13 sucks"

LMFAO!

use an air wrench and a hammer. Takes 2 secs. But are you pulling the hub for a reason? you need to for bearing replace, ball joints, etc, not rotors. Hell my rotors will fall right off if I pull the caliper...

hit that S*** with pbblaster as well, makes it a lot easier

Bay 13 does NOT suck. It's not supposed to be a Darn Volvo service manual you know...

Yeah, in many cases its better than a service manual for the experience challenged. He sounds like he's probably between the ages of 17 and 22 (not a general slam against the younger) and his ignorance and "learning experiences" always seem to be somebody elses fault.

To be more constructive, you can look at any number of brake job tutorials and see pretty much the same thing. The caliper bolts on the back of the caliper can definitely be tough. Patience and PB Blaster will pay dividends. If you would like a sure fire fix, get a piece of 15" or so muffler pipe from the bin at Autozone that will slide over the end of your breaker bar. This will give you a surprising improvement in leverage. With PB on those bolts and the cheater bar no brake caliper bolt on earth will stand in your way. Good luck

As proof I just swapped a CV axle off a 87 and 89 jetta. The axle nuts are on those at 195 ft. lbs and these did come off by hand using PB, a breaker bar and a piec of muffler pipe.
