Looked at the rear brake pads & rotors this weekend on wifey's 05 Altima SE w/ 82k (lots of stop & go) and they need to be replaced. I did the front pads & rotors awhile ago w/ no problems (except for having to BEAT the living snot out of the rotors to get them off, even after soaking w/ tons of PB Blaster); however, it doesn't look easy at all to get the rear rotors off.
I thought I could get the rear rotors off by first removing the rear caliper but there's a bar behind the caliper & it looks like it interferes w/ getting the caliper bolts out. WTF?
Am I missing something???
Has anyone removed the rear rotors? How did you do it? Love the Altima but the rocket scientists at Nissan really threw me a curve ball on this one...I'm stumped.
Appreciate any recommendations you've got. Thanks!
