Hyundai has a really bad design on some of the brake rotors. Once you remove the tires and the caliper (including caliper bracket) you will need to crawl beneath the vehicle (making certain that it's elevated securly. With a large hammer (baby sledge or rubber mallet) bang on the rotor as you slowly rotate the rotor around in a circle. There's a corrosion ring that forms between the rotor and axle hub that makes it seem impossible to get the rotor off. Once you see some movement in the rotor continue in the same manner. the front wheel rotors are considerable more difficult that the rear wheels. With the rear wheels you can usually break the corrosion ring by banging hard on the top of the rotor from the outside of the wheel well. Hit it hard, rotate the wheel a quarter turn and hit it again.

On earlier Hyundai's, the rotor is bolted to the hub. You have to remove the knuckle and press off the hub bearing to access 4 mounting bolts (I believe they're 14mm bolts) to detach the rotors from the hubs... then press the bearings back on after you've intalled the new rotors. If you're only resurfacing/remachining the rotors, it's easier to use an on-vehicle brake lathe.
