REMOVING FRONT ROTORS

2003 Toyota Highlander

Brakes problem
2003 Toyota Highlander 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 84000 miles

I'm attempting to replace a front rotor on my 2003 Toyota Highlander. 4 cyl, 2wd. There is a front axle nut that I cannot remove even with 125 psi on my impact wrench. Is this nut actually thredded or a nylon pressed on nut?I also see two thredded holes on the front face of the rotor, What size are these(Metric)? And if thredded with bolts will they press the rotor off the axle with this nut in place?

Yes leave the nut alone. The bolts are 8mm by 1.25 just screw them in evenly, spray with penetrating oil and tap with a hammer. They should come off fairly easy. Hit it hard with the hammer if you have to, it will pop off. Hope this helps
