Rear brake disks won’t come off

Recommended Posts

Tried hammering, pushing the disk out with bolts, sprayed about half a can of wd40 on it but it just won’t budge any advice would be appreciated. Brakes are on a 91 

thanks

Just realised what I was doing wrong :crazy:. So when I get new rear disk brakes will I need to replace the bearings as well? 

Cheers

I would while its off it makes sense. you don't have to just check for wear. just remember not to over tighten when you refit or you will destroy the bearings.

You can re use the bearings but when you there you might as well replace them. Same bearings as n/a starlet so cheap enough from motorfactors. Think I paid £13 a side for them
