Customer Question

I can't get the rear rotor off my 2008 Saturn Vue. I have removed the rubber grommet but don't see the star wheel to loosen the parking brake anywhere.
JA: Have your brakes ever been replaced? Have you checked the brake fluid?
Customer: The pads have been replaced, fluid is fine
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes I am. The wheel is removed, the caliper removed and hung out of the way with wire, the torx screw removed, the rubber grommet removed to loosen the parking brake, but I cannot find the star wheel adjuster anywhere.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No

HI,

The adjuster wheel is at the 12 oclock position - see attached). The hub face pretty much blocks most of the view of it and you have to use feel with a small screwdriver to feel for the adjuster wheel teeth to turn it
