I never owned a Mitsubishi, but every rotor that I ever replaced, and I replaced rotors on my 1999 Voyager last weekend, when you remove the caliper, the rotor comes off of the lug studs and axle.
Tap it with a mallet and it should come right off. Let me know.
I'm assuming you want to remove the rear rotors. No rear brake rotor nut for holding the rotor on that I know off. I just had my rear rotors off and turned on my 94 Concorde LX.
After removing the tire I diligenty removed the star washers (2) from the lug studs. Then a little spray of PB Blaster around the center hub. Next I removed the 2 10mm bolts holding the caliper to the rotor. A slight nudge with a rubber mallet and the caliper is free, but do support it, don't let it dangle. Another slight nudge on the rotor with a rubber mallet and the rotor literally fell off the car.
There is a rear axle nut and bearing inside of the center hub that is secured by a large 34mm hex nut, on the outside of that a lock ring that looks like a large black bottle cap with a cotter pin going through it for retention. That has nothing to do with removing the rotors. With a little patience, lubricant and gentle tapping, the rotors slide off the center hub. Hope this helps.

If wheel and calipers are off, and no retainers on studs, spray some penetrating lube in center of hub where rotor slides over hub shoulder. Let it sit for a minute or two, then place a block of wood against outside edge of rotor and hit block with a hammer. May have to give it a good hit, around perimeter in a few spots to get it to jar loose in center at hub. Usually just rusted. Better if you have a big rubber mallet, and hit hard all around outside area of rotor, but block of wood will do the job as well.
is this front wheel? rear wheel? or 4 wheel drive? if you have front wheel drive or 4 wheel drive you will need to take the tire off and get the center cap off with cotter pin on most vehicles. then put the tire back on without its center cap. then put the vehicle back on the ground. then use required socket with an extention and breaker bar to put through the rim to loosen center hub bolt about a quarter turn. just enough to break it loose. then take the tire back off to finish the job. remove the brake caliper and rotor then center nut on hub bearing. there should be 3 bolts from the inside holding hub bearing on. on rear wheel only you won't need to take the tire off and on.
Remove the tire, remove the brake calipers, 2 bolts on back side of rotor, remove the carter pin that retains the bolt position if equiped, remove the center nut. When you pull the rotor off watch for a set of bearings to drop out. To install the new rotor reverse the process.
Remove the wheels, then on the back side of the rotor will be two bolts holding the caliper on. Remove them, then there will be two more bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket on, remove those, and the bracket. The rotors will slide off. If you have never had the brakes done there will be two metal washers holding the rotor on to the studs, cut them off with a chisel. They are only there to hold the rotors on during assembly line operations. Good Luck
Section 04-01: Suspension and Wheel Hubs, Front
1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
Wheel Hub Bolt
Raise vehicle on hoist.
Remove wheel and tire assembly. Refer to Section 04-04 .
Remove disc brake caliper (2B120), and front disc brake rotor (1125). Refer to Section 06-03 .
Brake Shoe and Lining
Remove brake master cylinder filler cap (2162). Check fluid level in brake master cylinder reservoir (2K478). Remove brake fluid until brake master cylinder reservoir is half full. Discard removed fluid.
Raise vehicle on hoist. Refer to Section 00-02 .
Remove wheel and tire assembly from front disc brake rotor mounting face. Use care to avoid damage or interference with disc brake caliper (2B120), front disc brake rotor shield (2K004) or front wheel knuckle (3K185).
Remove rear brake pin retainers (2N386). ( I think it is a T 40 torx bit you need)
NOTE: It is not necessary to disconnect hydraulic connections.
Lift disc brake caliper from front disc brake caliper anchor plate (2B292) and front disc brake rotor (1125). Do not pry directly against metal caliper piston or damage will occur.
Position disc brake caliper out of the way and support with wire to avoid damaging the disc brake caliper and front brake hose (2078).
Remove outer brake shoe and lining (2001) assembly from front disc brake caliper anchor plate.
Remove inner brake shoe and lining assembly.
Position lug bolt (1107) to clear front wheel knuckle (3K185).
Remove lug bolt from wheel hub (1104).
Install lug bolt into wheel hub.
Using a lug nut (1012), seat wheel hub bolt into wheel hub.
Install front disc brake rotor and disc brake caliper. Refer to Section 06-03 .
Install wheel and tire assembly. Tighten lug nut to 115-142Nm (85-104 lb-ft).
Front or rear?
For front: Remove wheel/tire
Remove brake caliper - two bolts usually with internal hex heads (think big Allen wrench)
Lift caliper (which holds pads) out of the way and support it so it doesn't "hang" by the brake hose (you may have to tap it with a hammer)
Once the caliper is out of the way, the disc (also called a "rotor") should slide off the hub. Unless it's rear wheel drive. In that case, you'll need to remove the small center hubcab, remove the cotter pin from its hole in the spindle, then remove the large packing nut. The outer bearing can then be removed and the rotor can then be removed.
