brakes

i got a 92 si.. first off this car has been sitting for a long time.... i went to go do the brakes on the car when we were trying to take the front rotors off we had to drill the 2 screws out and idk if there is another bolt or something else that needs to be taken off in order to break them free? im not too mechanically inclined but any help on a good way to take them off would be great

Re: brakes

Well the rotors just sit on the studs, the brake calipers are already off im assuming and you took the alignment screws out, "the little phillips" There should be nothing left holding that assembly on, possibly rusted onto the studs spray everything with PB blaster and double check nothing is holding onto it and pull er off.

Correct ^^, When in doubt grab the torch!! FLAME ON!
heat will expand the metal and allow you to hammer it off hopefully.

Re: brakes

Just keep hitting it, rotate it and hit it near the hub. Then if it still wont budge, hit it from behind the rotor as well.
