Remove 2007 Commander Rear Brake Rotor

[SOLBVED}Is there a trick to getting it off?

It has a little silver cap/plug the size off an old dollar coin in the middle. Or do you just bang on it until it comes loose with a hammer like other cars?

It dose not want to come loose. I have the caliper off already.

Yes I took the O ring off.

I just hammered harder thanks all!

Make sure the parking brake is off.

Sounds stupid simple but is easy to overlook.

Ask me how I know.......;-)

No cap, but there may be a black rubber o-ring if the rotors haven't been replaced before.

If it's there, pull it and toss it in the trash can.

Always wondered about those o-rings. First time I changed my rotors, the o-rings got lost, so they were never replaced. What purpose exactly do they serve, and should they have been replaced? Sounds like colinzj thinks not!

They're on there to keep the rotors in place at the factory on the assembly line. You don't need them

Interesting. Didn't know that. Thanks. Fortunately, my wheels & calipers do a pretty good job of holding the rotors on!

I'm just following the good book. The FSM says throw it away, I throw it away.

Anyone else reading this having trouble removing their brake discs. I had the same issue at the weekend and no end of hitting them would get them off. In the end i sprayed plusgas around the hole of the discs where the wheel nut studs come out, left it for a moment to soak and they came off with a slight tap of the hammer.
