I'm trying to get my front discs off my 2011 CTS and they are not cooperating. I am reluctant to use a 5 pound hammer so I have been using a rubber mallet try to loosen them but to avail. Any suggestions?
I use PB blaster and taps on the hat to break as much rust loose as I can. Let the PB work for about 15 mins while I work on the other rotors then I tab the back of the rotor but from the INSIDE of the edge of the rotor to try to pop it out as straight as possible.
Method has worked for me for years on 50+ brake changes I've done.
Only vehicle we couldn't get off was my sister's H3 which didn't get changed until 90k mi. After 2 hrs my dad ended up just cutting the rotor hat off.
