    Rear rotor removal, help needed

    Ok, so I'm trying to replace my pads and rotors. The front rotor came right off after I took the caliper bracket off. The rear doesn't seem to want to budge.

    Any ideas? I only have 1 side of the car up off the ground, but that shouldn't make any difference, should it?

    Sometimes they get siezed to the axle, take a block of wood and put it behind the rotor and hit it with a hammer. The wood will protect the rotor from damage. Also hitting the face of the rotor will help as long as you don't the a lug stud. (By face of the rotor I mean the hub area not where the pads touch)

    It may help to spray some WD40 or rust penetrate through the lug stud holes.

    Also make sure you put at leats one lug nut on loosly so when the rotor does free up it doesn't go flying off.

    I ended up going out and buying one of those $20 propane torches. As I was heating the area between the lugs and the hub water started seeping out. After that a couple taps with a hammer and they both came right off.

    Use a little WD-40, take a mallet to in and it should just pop off.
