I just tried toremove the rear brake disc on the drivers side. I removed the two Screws (13mm wrench) and tried o get the disc off, but it didn't move. othing happend. When i take a look at the parts catalogue, there should be notthing who still holds the disk.
Any idea what i had made wrong ?

Not trying to be a wise guy, but is the parking brake released? My students forget this all the time. -Steve

Yes, and the brake caliper is demounted too, so the disc is accessible

Hmmm, the only thing I can think of is that the disk is rusted to the hub. Do you live in a place where corrosion is a problem? See if you can get some penetrating oil in there and let it soak for a day or two. I'll look at my car tomorrow and see if we have both missed something. -Steve

Rust was finally the problem, after leave it for about 30h under the pressure of two vice screws and a lot of WD 40 it finally breake loose!:o

I just checked my car. After taking the two bolts out, the disc fell off. Sorry about your corrosion, but at least you got it. I'm curious, where do you live? -Steve

How about that. I was just in the Berner Oberland in September for two weeks. There is no better place on the planet for hiking. This was our sixth visit :) -Steve

Ich war zwar noch nie auf dem Schilthorn, jedoch oft auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite, im Jungfraugebiet. Woher kommen Sie ?

Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Wir haben keinen Rost! Aber, ich wandere gern in der berg. -Steve
