    Default REMOVE FRONT ROTORS '04 COLLY

    HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE ROTORS TO CUT THEM? DO THEY USE THE HUB? DO YOU PRESS THEM APART? THANKS DOUG

    haven't changed mine yet, but they may have that small layer of sealer around where the rotor meets the hub, may have to chip it off to get rotors to free up off the hub!

    Realy? By cut you mean they're turning the rotors while still on the vehicle?

    At first I thought he ment have them slotted, as in drilled, and slotted. I can't see a dealer doing that though. so he must mean turning.
