Sometimes they just get stuck, which a big soft blunt hammer will cure with a good hit , or maybe you missed these assembly line screws ? there may be 2 of them on each rotor .

if there just stuck , try some penetrating oil / spray , and spray around the inside circle where the rotor meets the hub , let it penetrate ,give it a good smack with a hammer and a piece of wood so you don't damage the rotor .

Are you saying that you are trying to replace the lug stud? The studs are pressed into the spindle that the rotor is mounted to. It is possible to pull the stud thru the spindle by tightening the lug nut, but this is not the proper way to do it. The proper way would be to remove the rotor and the spindle from the vehicle and press the lug stud into the spindle with a press. But I have pulled studs into the spindle when I was broken down on the side of the road with 5 broken studs. You just have to make sure you tighten the nuts until they do not tighten anymore, and check the nuts every day until they do not tighten anymore.

Broken front wheel stud 2003 grand caravan

jack up vehicle, remove tire. knock out old stud with a hammer and punch. put new stud in from back if need be. to draw it up tight.use a lug nut with something under it so when you tighten the nut it brings the stud into position. remove the nut you put on. and replace the tire. good-day! if the brakes and rotor are in the way. you will have to remove them to replace the wheel stud.

I took off the wheel, caliber, and the brake pads. Then when i try to remove the rotor it will not budge. Is there a trick I need to know?

Hi, I assume you are going to replace them?
Firstly spray penetrating fluid around the hub which it fits on and around the studs where they
stick through the rotor.
Using a big hammer ( this is why i hope you are replacing the rotors) strike the surface of the
rotor between the wheel studs going from side to side across the diameter.
Usually the shock treatment will loosen them off.
You can also strike the rotor on the pad surface again going side to side
Be carefull and wear glasses as the cast iron will break off
I hpe i`ve helped you with this problem good luck

I have the calipers off and am trying to replace teh rotor in a town and country but they are really stuck on there. What can I do? I have hit them with a rubber mallet already, but they are not budging....

No pins. Soak it with wd40 around the center and around the studs for about 10 minutes. Then hit the rotor with a metal headed hammer. Hit it hard, but be accurate, don't hit the studs.

Broken stud on wheel

The studs press out and in. Perhaps a hammer would work. Replacements studs can be purchased. Need to remove hub, of course.

How to replace front broken wheel stud on a '02 jeep grand limited 4x4...steps involve to replace the bolt with a new one? thanks!

Remove wheel, brake caliper and rotor. Give the broken lug a good shot with a decent weight hammer and drive it out of the hub flange. Put new stud into hole, place a stack of washers on it and place the lug nut on backwards (flat side in)
Use oil on the threads to prevent binding, tighten lug 'till stud is seated, replace everything you removed.

Rear rotor on a 2007 chrysler town and country won't budge.

Sounds like you have that old "rust" problem. Rust and calcium build up around the hub and behind the rotor. Wire brush as much as you can around the hub. Using a medium hammer tap the rotor near the hub between the studs. Take care not to hit the studs because this will damage the threads. Sometimes applying some heat with a small butane torch will help free the rotor. Do not heat severely, this will cause warpage. Take your time and you will be successfull. Good luck Moe
