Lignes de l'étape

[* black] You will first need to remove your wheel to complete the remainder of this job.
[* black] Then unbolt the two 19mm bolts on the back of the caliper. They are in very tightly and held in by thread locker, you may need a long wrench or breaker bar to remove these.
[* black] Lift the caliper off of the rotor and hang it with a wire hanger from the sway bar or other strong point on the car. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose, this can damage the hose leading to an unsafe driving condition.
[* black] Or, optionally, remove the caliper from the car for cleaning and new pad install. See the [guide|21534|caliper replacement] and [guide|21531|break pad replacement] guides.
[* black] The rear rotor can then be simply pulled off. If it seems to be stuck to the rear hub, tap around the outside of the rotor with the wooden handle of a hammer, or a rubber mallet, to break it loose.
