LOL!! Ya they are a pain in the a$$ if it's the year car I am thinking of. Are there 3 "threaded screw holes" near the wheel stud holes? If there is you need a special tool called a slide hammer to get the rotors off. You can get one of these on loan from Autozone for example. And may the force be with you.

If there is not, then you should jump up and down and be glad. Get some rust penetrant and a big hammer, like a 2 or 3 pound hammer. Put all lug nuts on all of the wheel studs (not tight just on a few turns with your fingers) to protect the threads when you are wacking at the rotor with the hammer. This will also keep the rotor from falling on you (they are pretty heavy). Spray the rust pentrant through the wheel stud holes and around the middle where the rotor meets the wheel hub and let it soak for about 5 minutes. Now firmly start wacking the rotor being careful not to hit the actual flat surface of the rotor but the very edge as well as the middle near the wheel studs.

A little cursing at it will improve your chances while you are hitting it. Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt!!

Good Luck!!
