Does anyone have any experience with Chevy Lumina? I have a '97 sedan that I need to put front brakes on. I have done brakes many times but never on this car. I can't get the rotors off. Does this car require the axle nut to be removed to accomplish this?

Not familiar with that model, but you may have one piece rotor/hub. Any auto parts store should be able to tell you.

I think Walt guessed it right.Many have the rotor and hub one piece on the front. Just do like you are doing a wheelbearing replacement.When you replace or turn the rotors get new wheel seals at minimum,They add little to cost. If rotor is beyond turn specs.I think they are about 45 bucks each new.

I would think that those rotors should be hat rotors. They should come off once you get the calipers off. Although i have seen them rust on around the center. They would need persuasion then. Just my .02 worth.

Yes they are hat rotors. They were corroded real good . all it took was some PB blaster and a BIG effin hammer. Thanks for the replies
