This must sound stupid. Just went to change my front discs and pads myself. Got to the point of just taking the disc off. But couldnt get it off. Have i got to unbolt something or does it just pull off. Didnt wanna bang it with a hammer if it is bolted. I couldnt see any

    Have you taken the caliper off?!  ;)

    If not, theres the two little wheel locating pins which secure the disc to the hub - these will need to come off too  :thumb:

    Thats what i was thinking. All that i could see to undo was the big nut for the hub.

    Don't undo that. Just bash the hell out of the disc with a rubber hammer.

    The sight of Lloyds magic mallet and they will fall off, get ready to catch them though.
