Hey guys,

I started disassembling the right rear break to get the rotor off to replace a broken stud yesterday but the rotor was stuck... the rotor has two threaded holes on the front to get it off.. My understanding is that the holes are for a 8mm- 1.25 bolt, is that correct?

and if anyone could confirm..

1. take wheel off.
2. take caliper and mounting bracket off.
3. take rotor off.
4. I should be able to replace stud now?


Thank guys!

IIRC that is correct. To double check, the bolts that are on the radiator hold down clamps are the correct size. At least they used to be.
May or may not be long enough for your issue.
Make sure your handbrake is off.

Yeah. E brake was off. A buddy and I were able to get it all done tonight. MAJOR PITA. M8 1.25 was the bolt. I just went out and bought 4 bolts just to keep handy.

Thanks guy
