Today’s Zip Corvette Technical Question is asked many times from customers that are working on 1965-1982 Corvette brakes:
How do I remove the rotors?
Answer: From the factory, Corvette rotors were riveted to either the front hub assembly or the rear spindle. To remove the rotors from your Corvette, drill out the rivets, removing the head of the pressed-in rivet and then pull the rotor off. The rivets, still remaining in the hub assembly or spindle, can then be cut or driven out with a hammer. To install the new rotor, the rivets DO NOT need to be replaced. The Chevrolet Corvette service manual recommends simply using the lug nuts of the wheel to hold the rotor in place.
