Anyone find a cement type of material at the rotor to hub mating area. Have had to chip away at this material with a chisel. Left was so glued on that after the bolt hole threads stripped, I had to re-drill and re-tap the holes on the rotor to get it off. Right, same issue, so for today I called it and went in side. Anyone seen this before??? :evil:

Yep the rear rotors (or front for that matter) can be really stuck on the hub after some extensive use.

A few methods for getting them off.

Search for what you're looking for and there is several threads on the subject.

Be sure the hubs are really clean before putting the new rotors on so the rotors can sit flat. Otherwise you can end up with pedal vibration.

OK thanks

Kinda figured it is krap on the hub to rotor mating areas. What a pain. Rears I did last year and went pretty easy. Fronts a whole different animal. Done plenty brake jobs through out my life, but never had this much difficulty. Talked to our metallurgy department and they said al lot has to do with the interaction of aluminum and steel. Brake dust adds to the mix.
