Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata
Place the car on a jack or lift and raise the car so the tire is several inches off the ground, remove the tire by removing the lug nuts, once off you must undo the brake bleeder, it looks like a small nozzle on top to the calipers, then insert a screw driver or something of the like between the brake piston and rotor and push the piston back, once that is done undo the two screws one on top of the caliper and one at the bottom, once done remove the caliper but be careful not to pull the tube of the caliper to far. then you should be able to pull the rotor off, if it wont come off take a rubber mallet and tap the back of the rotor, the rotor should come off without too much issue

Depends somewhat if it's a front rotor or a rear rotor. The most common problem will be "corrosion" that's binding the two metal parts together. If you are not trying to reuse the rotor after turning (many are throwaways now adays) take a large hammer and bang the outer edge of the rotor. The vibration should cause the corrosion to break apart, and the rotor should pull away. If your planning on re-using the rotor after turning use a large rubber mallet.
The front rotors have about a 3/4 inch common surface between the rotor and the wheel hub. You may need to bang on the backside of the rotor as you slowly turn the rotor in order to cause the two parts to slide apart. It can be a slow process, but you should see some movement (but it must be even movement around the entire rotor. The back rotors have far less common surface and a few good waps should break the parts free.
