Rear Rotor Removal
I was recently changing my struts on the rear right tire, which went good enough. As I was tightening the tires however, I managed to break off 3 out of the 5 wheel studs for that tire :S I got the replacement studs from a mechanic and tried to replace them as it seemed to be a simple enough job. The problem I had was I could not remove what I think is the rotor! Im not sure which bolts I need to remove because there is no brake caliper on the rear tires. I want to fix it this weekend as I need my car to get to work and am too scared to drive it anywhere frown If anybody could provide any advice it would be very appreciated!

I have seen this page already and is great for replacing the actual studs, the problem I am having is removing the caliper and rotor like it says to do.

the second link seems to be for the GTS. Though, you have a GT, with drum brakes, correct?

Ive just skimmed through them and they actually have pointed my in the right direction of what I need to do! There is two little holes by the studs where I can insert small bolts to push the drum out. I will try this out tomorrow!

I have just tried to use the two holes on the front of the hub to unscrew it. I used a 5/16 size bolt which I think is the equivalent of the M8 x 2 that I read was necessary. It seemed like it was working at first but the hole quickly became bigger than the bolt which is weird because I didnt screw it very far at all! So now im back to square one and am not sure how to proceed. I am thinking about carefully drilling the whole to make it bigger and give it some threads because I dont see any. Any thoughts?
