I need to change the rotors on my 2005 cobalt.

I don't have the size socket needed to remove the nut in the middle that holds the rotor on.

Any help on the size needed?

hope this helps

ehhh....i think your looking at the axle shaft nut and you dont need to remove that to change ur rotors. u just need to pull off the caliper. it should be two 15 millimeter bolts on the back side of the caliper the whole assembly will come off, then the rotor will just slide off the wheel studs... hope this helps....

wow, really?

ok, I planned on changing the pads tomorrow and waiting on the rotors but if the rotors come off when i remove the caliper then that makes it much easier to do both

a little high temp (copper) antiseize on the backside of where the rotor mounts is always a good idea as well..
