Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
I've never dealt with your vehicle... but I know I've had issues with pulling off rotors because the center hole rusts onto the spindle.
If these are rear rotors, then you might have a problem with the parking brake shoes being the hangup as a lip is formed faround the parking brake and makes it difficult to remove.
As always, be sure the vehicle is safely supported with a jackstand.
If you're sure that nothing else is holding on the rotor, try some sandpaper around the part of the spindle that sticks through the rotor. Then try some WD40 and let it soak for a bit. Then, give it some friendly persuasion with a mallet (a block of wood and a hammer can also do the trick, but you want to avoid smacking the rotor directly with a hammer... and be sure to wear those safety glasses), tapping around the rotor evenly.
Sometimes they can be a real bear to get off... don't forget to clean everything up thoroughly with brake cleaner as you're putting it back together.
