Hey....I've searched and still don't find an answer. Changing my pads/rotors on my '05 Grand Am....what size is the nut that is holding on the rotor? Largest I have is 30mm and it's too small.

Thanks in advance!

That's the nut on the half shaft, you don't take that off to change rotors.

There's two bolts holding the caliper to the bracket. Take those off and make sure to lubricate the sliders.

There are another two bolts holding the bracket on. Take those off to remove the rotor. The wheel lugs hold the rotor in place.

Yeah that is something totally different, just take off that caliper TOTALLY and the rotor slides off

Thanks guys!! I went back out to the garage right after typing that post and saw that. I had just done the brakes on my son's S10 the other day so I was still in that mindset rather than just looking further.
