asked by on

I cannot get the front disc to line up. It seems stuck. Can you advise?

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. In order to answer your question I would require a few more details on what you are having trouble with. If you are having trouble aligning the hub / brake assembly with the struts, it may be possible that you will need to compress the strut with a spring compressor, or raise the hub assembly with a jack, carefully.
