Why the F%$# is it so hard to remove the rear discs off a 3.5 gen camry, The Haynes says something about taking the rubber plug out and turning a little wheel inside the rotor to loosen the parking brake away from the rotors.

Has anyone removed the their rear discs before, do yall have any pointers. Someone help me out. :mad: :mad:

that's the parking brake adjustment that you have to loosen up, its at the 6 o clock position, you have to move the teeth upwards,

but there's probably a groove on the inside of the drum preventing it from coming out, give it some loving with a rubber mallet on the disk, and hammer the shit out of the drum part

if that won't work, then you'll have to pull it off using 2 little bolts (same thread as the bolt that holds the brake line to the strut)

if you malletize the rotor though, be prepared to be replacing all the hardware on the parking brake cause it will get fucked if its hung.

it may just be rusted on....that's what happened to all 4 of my rotors when I changed them.....I beat the shit outta them with a big ass mallet and it didn't go anywhere......

you gotta use that screw hole in the rotor to pop the disc out then.....the pin/screw from the bottom of the caliper fits perfectly so you don't even have to get the tool :thumbup:
