Remove rear discs

Post by Budda » Thu Feb 16, 2006 9:27 pm

Hi

I was thinking about fixing my rear brakes... I'm going to replace the discs but I can't get rid of the old ones. The car is a -88 Turbo and should have discs with integrated hubs, but as far as I can see these have been replaced by a previous owner. Am I right or wrong? (see pics) I begin to think they are integrated, 'cause I have tried everything to get them loose - heating them up with fire, used chemicals, used a hammer :angry: etc...

Any ideas? Thanx in advance! /Mikael

That's without hubs, you can see the screw on the first pic barely on the right of that centre cap. Remove that screw and the disc will come off. I sorted the same kind of rust on my ES.

altough haven't fitted the new calipers yet. Those rusted ones were toast.

I'm not sure if the pics were good enough, but as you can see the first pic is a closeup of the place where the screw should be. If you look closer, you see that the screw is already drilled by someone. (Previous owner)

Despite that, the discs wont fall off! Must be lots of rust between the disc and the hub?! Perhaps I have to go to a mechanic to get help...
