F150 rotor/hub ?

Getting ready to install the front rotors - and I can't for the life of me figure out how to seperate the rotor from the hub/spindle assembly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

had the same problem myself, again:D
hammer the studs out of the rotor, be careful not to hit the hub, then take a cold chisle to where the hub sits on the rotor, and work your way around

Thanks - I'll try that.

BTW - Do you reccomend whacking it even though the spindle is still inside the hub?

NO!

There's a large diameter, thin C clip on the outer edge of the inside of the hub, that holds the inner locking hub assembly on the spindle and in the hub. It's about 3/8" in, and rests in a groove on the hub. You have to 'hook' it out with a screwdriver or dental hook, etc. It's a PIA the 1st time.

Good luck.
