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?

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.

do you have a pic of what the snap ring looks like?

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

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.
