Re: Rear disc (rotor) removal, E450 1999
OK, done it now, the nut which retains the hub/disc assembly has cut-outs so you can tap it round until it's unscrewed, then lift off the hub/disc and outer bearing. An air gun was needed to unscrew the 8 torx headed bolts holding the disc to the hub. Nobody within 30 miles had any torx sockets, but a standard impact socket did the job! The disc was then supported between 2 wooden blocks, and a piece of tubing found, of the correct size to drive the disc and hub apart (square tube proved to be OK). A few relatively gentle taps with a sledgehammer did the rest.
