IIRC- a gentle pry is what got mine off. I do not remember anything other than a friction fit being on it. But I thought there were 4 screws/bolts?ehaughn said:Well, I purchased a new rear rotor, EBC MD615. Got it all apart. I removed the 3 screws holding on the ABS ring. The ring will not come off.How do I remove this?Thanks
Use a heat gun or pop the whole thing in an oven at 250degrees F. It'll probably come off much more easily with heat. And you'll run less risk of damaging something.

I think cook1e is seeing the same thing I am. Looks like the hex bolt that mounts the caliper is rubbing on the rotor.ehaughn said:Here are a few pics of the rotor.
I seem to remember that the bolts are different lengths too. Not interchangeable.ehaughn said:I believe you are correct. The rear facing bolt had a flange and the front facing bolt does not. At least this is what mine looks like.
A picture would be greatly appreciated.
Never mind the flange. My 2000 has bolts that have identical heads. As others have posted, I too recall the two bolts that mount the caliper are different lengths.ehaughn said:Hard to tell from the pictures.
Which bolt has the flange?

I'd put money on the two bolts having been switched over
It will even out but the rotor may never end up in the center. The pistons will equalize the force on the pads. One always wears more than the other anyway even with a centered rotor.ehaughn said:. I thought since the caliper if fixed and there are 4 pistons, it would self-adjust.
