Brakes problem

I can not remove the hub to take off the rotors so I can replace them with new ones.

More information: It's a Charger SXT with rear wheel drive, anti-lock 4 wheel disc brakes.

Hello and thanks for the donation!

to remove the hub, need to have an assistant for this.

while a helper applies brakes to keep hub from rotating, remove the hub nut from the axle half shaft. this will allow you to access and remove the rotor.

This suggestion was NO help whatsoever. Wouldn't the car have to be running for it to turn, anyhow?

No. Applying the torque to the nut will cause the vehicle to shift, allowing the nut to roll with the vehicle and preventing you from loosening it. This is not a suggestion, it is the proper removal procedures for your vehicle's hub and rotor

My husband finally removed the rotors but not using your method. You can keep the donation because it's nice for people to have somewhere to turn even though you did not help us this time. Thanks.
