In a bot of a bind here. I'm trying to replace the rear rotors on my girlfriend's 2012 SX4 Crossover. I have the new rotors, however, I cannot for the life of me remove the original rotors. It looks as if the old rotors are held on by the axle nut, however, I have never seen this on any car before.
Could there be that much rust, etc between the rotor and the area around the axle nut that it looks to be a thin weld line? I've sprayed it with penetrating oil and have been banging away with a hammer on it and still cannot loosen that damn thing. Up in New England BTW so salt and rust is an issue.
Any advice would be appreciated; thanks in advance
