Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help.
Have you tried spraying rust penetrating oil around the inner most part of the rotor? Then wack the rotor between the studs carefully as hard as you can. Do a star pattern when you do this. Also, sometimes rotors have screws on the face of the rotor that are flush with it. They are usually phillips head screws. This may not be the case, but you need to check
You need top hit it hard! A puller might screw up your rotor
Don't worry, you aren't going to mess it up. Unless you hit a stud!
Don't use a regular nail driving hammer either. You need a bigger one
One neat little trick is to put pieces of rubber hose on the studs before hammering
Yeah you can if you want. Watch out for flying debris. What kind of penetration oil are you using?
Oh that's good.
The problem you might run into is that if the bearing is coming apart, the rotor will probably never come off
Everything might come off together in one piece.
You can spray it again and wait till morning to try again. Let the PB work into it
Do you also have a small torch?
Just around the circle center where the two meet.
Sometimes heating it up will do the trick too.
Never used a puller. But if the puller is pushing the bearing towards the car and pulling the rotor away from the car it would work
In other words, it is trying to separate the two
Can you crank down on the puller and then use the hammer?
Maybe sneak a long metal pipe or something through the fingers of the puller and hammer it?
Sounds like a good idea! I will check back with you in the morning
Can you send me a pic(###) ###-####
