HOW TO REMOVE THE ROTORS ON A 2000 MITISUBISHI MONTERO SPORT

Resolved Question:

I bought some new rotors for my 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS. I can't figure out how to remove the bolted on rotors. I need some way to keep the axle from turning while I unbolt the rotor. Is there any special method for removing the rotors.

Thanks.

The easiest way is to insert a large screwdriver into the rotor fins. Now the screwdriver will keep the rotor from rotating. Loosen all the bolts but do not remove them. Once all rotor bolts are loosened, remove the screwdriver and proceed with the repair.

When reinstalling, keep the torques specs in mind.
