Default chrysler socket to remove rotor

I want to remove the rotors on my 2007 town and country but i don't know the size of the socket that is behind the cotter pin. Does anybody here know the size of the socket and if its metric or sae? I have a 1/2 in torque wrench. Is there a certain torque when putting it back on?

Thanks for the help

Those are "Lay over" rotors....they dont bolt on, and removing the cotter pin and nut WILL NOT help you...

Remove the caliper, and with a Hammer and wooden block, sharply hit it from the back. It will "POP-OFF" the hub...It is either stuck on the rust ...or if it is a rear rotor, it is stuck on the e-brake shoes.

Well ...not RIGHT off....A generous amount of penetrating oil, and a few good whacks should get them to pop off.

If these are rears..try loosening the parking brake adjuster......There will be a slot in the backing plate with a rubber insert..Just like the old days......
