Brake Disc removal tool



Hi all,

Having an issue with the rear brake discs not coming off, They slide off a couple of millimetres but don't budge beyond that. I was hoping this would be straight forward but looks like it may need some extra force. Could someone please recommend a rotor removal tool?

If not a tool could someone recommend a trade trick? I was thinking of removing the caliper and using the bolts to push the disc from behind by winding them in.

Please let me know your thoughts.

I also found a washer like component behind the nylon hub nut...is this normal? The flat side was facing the car and tapered side towards the nut, I though these were meant to be behind the discs?

Thanks.

Caliper off , BIG hammer , that'll sort it. The spacer washer should be between the hub and brake disc itself , flat face towards the car.

It'll just be tight on the stub axle.

A few taps with a hammer should sort it, failing that a puller tool will do it.
 
I've Tried a hammer, a Thor Hammer and it won't budge! Can anyone share a link to a tool? Not too sure what I'm looking for...
 
Well for a start it sounds like some daft c**t put the spacer washer in the wrong way round so your bearing will be shagged anyway

Get a big hammer and dont be a fanny about it😂

I'm a puny little man, there is no way I can swing a huge sledgehammer accurately without punching a hole through both ends of my car :D In fact I'd probably end up in my neighbours garden if I tried it.

Just put the hubnut back on a couple of threads, grab either side of the disc and start furiously pulling it towards you and pray the hub nut doesn't come off otherwise you'll have a nice breastplate😂

Just keep hitting it and turning the disc, it’ll break free eventually.

Put the wheel back on and use that as leverage to pull on. Put the hub nut back on a few turns too incase it suddenly releases.

Clearly you're not hitting it hard enough.

If you'd hit it that hard already the bearing would have just given in.

the spacer washer should go behind the disc/before the discs are fitted - not after . It won't be the first time I've heard of that happening either

if those are damaged and/or don't look like this, let me know and i'll put 2 x to one side for you to collect from the unit @ClioPowa

Mental the amount of stories you hear of the spacers being completely missing or in the wrong place. Takes 2 minutes to google where they go if you dont know! Crazy crazy
