    Today's Fiasco

    I go to replace my rear brake rotor and pads today. I get the wheel and caliper off lickity split, no problem. I then continue to beat the rotor mercilessly with no sign of it moving an inch.

    Finally, I break the seal!



    Time to pull this fucker off and put on my new Stop Techs.



    *tries grabbing brake and pulling and it won't come off...more pounding ensues*

    It won't come off still!



    Why is this not coming off?! I know, I'll call Jeremy and see if he has any pro tips as I've never ran into this problem before.



    *calls Jeremy* Jeremy has no idea either? WTF?!?!



    I then get a hammer and a hatchet and profusely beat the rotor until it falls off and I come down to my knees in tears...only to notice one thing....










    THE EBRAKE IS ON....

    I was dual wielding with the hammer and hatchet. (I used the rear/blunt side of the hatchet obviously ) I didn't have any intent on reusing that rotor.

    I knew what the issue was before I got halfway thru the story. You shoulda called me.

    Nice one...I've found though that sometimes using bolts in the extra holes on the rotor to get it off seems to work better than just hitting it regardless of the e-brake.
    "This is a ridiculous cause and effect suggestion."
    "Yeah, kind of like the sun rising and then morning happening, eh? What are they trying to pull on us?"
