how do I get the rear discs off a 1993 Mazda Protege LX

Asked by Mar 09, 2010 at 03:55 PM about the 1993 Mazda Protege 4 Dr LX Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've got the caliper off, and I was expecting the disc to slide right off, but it won't.  Is there a nut behind that center dust cap that I need to remove?  Is the bearing race integral with the disc?  Or do I just need a bigger hammer?

1 Answer

OK, after much pulling and hammering, I figured it out. There was a 6mm threaded hole in the disc. I threaded a bolt into it, and it pushed against the hub and 'pop', the disc unseized itself from the hub.
