2006 Acura TL REAR rotors

Alright guys, I need your help BAD.

I am at my brothers house without a manual of any kind.

Front rotors and brake pads went fine.

We removed the caliper and the 2 screws from the rotors in the rear but the rotors will only come off about half an inch and not one inch more and we were pulling with our might... I personally never changed rear disc brakes (always had drums)

Made sure the e-brake was off, even pulled up and let off the ebrake to see if that helped. Nothing. Pounded it to hell with a rubber mallet. I didnt want to go to crazy and damage something since it is my brothers car.

My question is this:


How in the hell do you remove the REAR rotors from a 2006 Acura TL Automatic?

My apologies. My buddy called and told me you need to remove the rubber access plug and stick a flat head in the hole to loosen the tension on the shoes against the rotor...

Sorry guys....

D-085: Front and rear Brake disc (rotor), knuckle, hub, and front wheel bearing replacement
http://tl.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=132940


Check SM page 18-30 steps 7, 8 & 9. Ignore the stuff about the spindle nut in earlier steps - you don't need to remove it for a rotor change.

You only need to remove the caliper then ONLY the steps 7, 8, & 9 on 18-30 to remove the rotor.

Didnt really help. Thanks though. What I had to do was remove the rubber access plug on the rear rotors to access the ebrake shoe spring assembly which I turned to retract the shoes. I then was able to pull the rotor almost all the way off. Had to use a prybar at the end to finish the job to finally get them all the way off. I was just so use to just brake drums. Never messed with 4 wheel disc brakes. At least until yesterday.

It's the step with the 8 x 1.25 bolts that tells you how to back the rotor off the hub using the bolts - that would replace your need for a prybar. Step #9.

I'd think that simply releasing the e-brake would eliminate the need of backing the e-brake shoes off with the adjustment knob.

Regardless, glad you got 'em off and hopefully the thread and links will help someone else in the future.

Rotors should come off fairly easy with the e-brake off without backing off the shoes unless you were pulling crooked. If that's the case the shoes are always dragging and you have issues.

Or try this. Put everything together take long drive. Come back home park the car WITHOUT using e-brake. And start to remove the rear brake.

Did you get the rotor screws out?
the two little screws that are on the face of the rotor hub.
those screws are a bitch!

once those two screws are out, bang on the rotor itself with a soft mallet to loosen up the rust.

once you have banged on it pretty hard, rust will start to drop from the middle of the rotor and the spindle.

when loose, pull off rotor.



Do not do as the other poster above suggested and put everything back on. that is a big waste of time!!!!!

yes, screws(2) are out. hammer (check), all rust are loose, i could wiggle the rotor but it would not slide out as if something is holding it from behind

There should be nothing else holding it. Maybe just pull harder?

you shouldn't have to loosen the drum pads, but sometimes it's necessary. remove the rubber plug and turn the star wheel and also use the threads where you can screw in bolts to push on the hub to get the rotor off.
