Reply to Chris (Moose)'s Post: what to use when i dont have a snap ring pliers and what is a shim and after i do that the rotor should come right off?
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 7 years ago.

After the flange bolts are removed and the flange then yes the rotor will come off.

You can try to get the snap ring off by using a screwdriver or the tips of needle nose pliers but its a snap ring that it is built to be only used with snap ring pliers. A shim is a washer.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
do you have a pic of what the snap ring looks like?
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 7 years ago.

I do not have a picture of the snap ring on your vehicle but here is a pic of the same design on another.

my vehicle has two or one snap ring and does the snap ring comes out up are out?
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 7 years ago.
You need snap ring pliers to open the snap ring to slide it off. When on it is squeezing tight. To remove it you must expand the opening.
