Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Thank you for using just answer.
Are the rotors stuck solid to the hub here or are they slightly loose with s little freeplay?
Are you replacing the rotors or just removing?
Stupid question here- do you have the parking brake off?
The rotors are loose with freeplay.
I'm replacing them.
The parking brake is off.
Okay, I'm with you but unfortunately now I can't fully rotate the rotor, it'll only turn about halfway and then gets stuck. I'm starting to think I may have messed something up trying to force it off with those bolts. What am I looking for as I rotate the rotor around using the flashlight to locate the adjuster? Will it look like a large slot screw head?
Okay! I know exactly what you are talking about as well as how to dial it down. It's toward the bottom, problem is that I think you are right concerning the damage to the brake hardware.... I could see stress fractures forming around where the bolts were pushing on the rotor (hence why I stopped) and so I'm thinking its likely that some of the brake hardware is a bit "stretched" at this point. I know what to do though and you've been money, so thanks for your time!
