Hello,

Yesterday my aunt asked me to fix up her braking system. I checked for disc or drum and then went to autozone and purchased OEM spec replacements along with shoes/pads and the hardware kit for the drum brakes.

I replaced the rear drum brakes fine; however when I got the front tire off in order to remove the rotor I saw whats shown in the pictures supplied in this post.

Whats shown in these pictures is definitely not what was provided as OEM spec from autozone. Also I've never seen a set up like this myself and am a bit leery of continuing without further information.

What type of setup is this? Would removing the castle nut that appears to be holding it on the axle be a dumb idea? It looks as if the tire lug nuts are inserted into a disc which is then bolted onto the rotor which is held on by a castle nut? Does this make sense?

Thank you for any and all help,

removing those 4 nuts you see inbetween the studs will let the rotor free it's self. I found this so weird, on most cars with a bolted rotor, it's been just one screw or nut....Hyundai put 4 here LOL
