Hi all.

Doing a FR brake pad job for a mate's '95 Corolla Seca.

The disc rotors have free movement of about 6mm rotation F-R.

The wheel studs are 11.5mm and the rotor holes are 14.5mm.

Is this normal?

Toyota dude says "yeah, that sounds about right"!

Sounds like crap to me.

Any opinions?

1.5mm clearance all around the stud - sounds okay. As long as both the pitch circle diameters (PCD) are the same, it will centrally locate, so dont stress.

Everything looks sweet. No movement on the stub/disc rotor side of things. No wear on the studs or the rotor holes.

The bloody thing just rotates F-R a bit.

Seems weird to me.

Yep, that's the same as mine. I pulled the calipers off to change the pads & the disc just about fell off onto the ground.

All seems to work fine now that it's back together.

Never seen anything like it.

all smaller yotas that i have worked on are the same.
they locate onto the hub via that little machined flange in the centre so to speak and the wheel studs just align em. once the wheel nuts are tight they dont move around anyway so nothing to worry about there mate.
