#1 of 6 2008 Impala Rotor (Disk) Removal
Jun 22, 2010 (6:13 pm)
I am changing my brakes and rotors on 2008 Impala LT. Can someone tell me what tool I need to actually remove the rotor off the hub? Is it the star shaped bolt (allen)on the disc? If yes what size would that be?

It's not an allen or star. It's a torx and the size is T-30.

It's best to use a T-30 that goes on a ratchet, you'll get more leverage. Also wd-40 like hell. I know the feeling, it almost feels like 3 strikes and your out. Be patient and use lots of penetrating fluid.

Thanks, i did finally get it out after penetrating oil, waiting a bit and the ratchet method.

Is that torque screw the only thing needed to remove the rotor after the caliper is off? I removed that screw and rotor still felt solidly attached.
