replacing my rotors

hey guys it has been a while but i got a new question. i am going to replace front rotors on my 02' f-350 superduty and was wondering how the rotors come off. i know it is probably a silly question but i have gotten myself into messes before becuase of thinkng it was one way and it was another. i am assuming that they just pop off with a little tapping. but i want to make sure. like on my old chevy i had to take off the whole hub because it was sandwiched in there.

thanks for any help

You know what, I had my brakes and rotors off when doing my wheel bearing but for some reason I don't remember that part haha. If I come across something and it shows you I'll get backed to you...

I had to replace one of my rears. After wheel was off I just removed the brake assembly and shot some pen-lube and with a little beatin' action it came off.

i think it depends if you have 4wd or not... if you have 4wd you might have to take apart the hubs... not 100 percent sure though

you should not have to take the hub apart at all. The rotor slides on over the top of it. All 99+ trucks have 4 wheel disc brakes, they vary slightly but they're still the same principle getting them apart. It may look like one entire piece at first glance, but it's just siezed up so shoot some lube on.... try a rubber mallet first and pound on the oustide of the rotor but NOT on the part that the pads touch. If you need to break out a small sledge, be careful. If you do need to pound on the rotor surface put a board between the surface and your hammer......

I pulled the wheel, I think there is a total of 4 bolts and you can remove the whole brake assbly and then just pull the rotor straight out.
