    My brother's Del Sol (D16) is in need of a new cap and rotor. However, he cannot get the old rotor off. He has removed the screw on the underside of the rotor and pulled pretty hard, but it will not come off. Is there something we are forgetting in the removal process or is there any tricks? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    just take that hex screw all the way out and then the rotor should slide right off

    I hope you don't have to do what my father and I had to do on my Civic like 5 years ago. We had to crack the plastic away from the rotor and then use vice grips to get the metal sleeve out.
