Never use a hammer on brake service, if your planning on keeping the parts. I assume you never clean off rust or put any lube on the hub or rotor, at least once a year,and now the rotor is rusted on.
Put a penetrating lube on center of hub/rotor and use a block of wood to tap and vibrate it loose.

How do you replace the rear axle collar?

Remove the wheel. Push the brake caliper piston back with a prybar or heavy screwdriver to make clearance to remove the caliper. Remove the entire caliper assembly by removing the 2 large bolts with an 18 mm socket and breaker bar.(they are tight!). Remove the rotor. Remove the 4 nuts on the axle retaining ring located behind backing plate using a 9/16" wrench. Attach a slide hammer to the wheel studs on the axle and hammer the axle out. Put the axle in an arbor press and press the bearings off of the axle. Press new bearings, seal and collar back onto the axle. Reassemble the rotor, caliper, etc. This can be done at home if you have access to a slide hammer and arbor press and some basic hand tools.

Remove rear rotors 2004 Lin Navigator.

Soounds like you have everything that you need to have off, off inluding those stupid little clips the put on the studs. after that, its hammer time. be sure to alternate side. might remove all the rust and dirt from the part of the axle you can see where the rotor has to slip over.

Lots of good penitrating oil and let it soak for a while always helps...

How do i change front rotors on s type jaguar 2004

you have to remove the 2 bolts holding on the caliper.
separate the caliper from the bracket.
remove the 2 bracket bolts,and after the bracket is off,the rotor can be removed.
some times the rotor needs to be hit with a 32oz hammer to knock it loose.hit the center hub,not the rotor pad surface.
wire brush the hub before installing the new rotor.
use silicone or moly lube on the slide bolts that hold on the caliper.lube the pad surface where they contact the pistons and the bracket.
you will have to compress the pistons to get new pads in.
use a piston tool from auto parts supplier.
for dual pistons,you need to use 2 of them,as one piston will go out when the other goes in.
a "c" clamp can do as well,but be careful not to damage the piston or the caliper will have to be replaced.

How to remove rear rotor on 06 Acura TL

They are pretty easy. I just did my friends front rotors and pads on an 01' Acura TL's. Pull all wheels off. Take pads off shoud be a 14mm to take the calipers off. Compress the calipers. Hang up your calipers w/ wire or string so they are not hanging by the brake line. Next look on the back side of the carrier. There will be 2 17mm bolts holding a the bracket for the calipers and pads. If you have trouble breaking them free, use a brass or dead blow hammer on the wrench. (You will be doing the same to tighten the bolts back up.) Next there will be 2 phillips head screws on the rotors. Now these can be a royal pain to get out w/ out stripping the head of the scews. I used an impact tool w/ a hammer to get them out. The craftsman one runs about 30 bucks. (It is not an air tool. It just looks like an oversized screw driver. It is spring loaded, so when you nail it w/ the hammer you will want to twist at the same time and it will break the screws loose.) Once those screws are out pull the rotors off. Degrease the new ones and reverse the process. Make sure you use the impact tool to put the screws back in. Hopefully the rotors come w/ them.
If you change your rotors I suggest changing the pads also.
This was for the fronts on an 01 Acura TL. I do not know if there is a difference between the years. Pay close attention when you start to pull the rotor off. Should be the same process for the rear I do not know. The only thing that might be different on the rear is that the bearing is in the rotor. Check the back rotors to see what they are. (If bearings are in the rear rotors, buy Bendix rotors for the rear. They come w/ the bearing carriers already in the rotor so you do not have to press them in. Buy grease and rear seal for rear rotors. Pack the bearing w/ new grease, put seal in back or rotor, make sure it is flush and put the rotor back on.)

Need to change a rotor. what tools do I need I already have the calipher off. I now have to remove the caliper mount.

Just completed doing my rotor place a car jack stand or stack 2 blocks on each side of your A frame. Let jack down and place some blocks behind front of and rear of tires left on the ground. To remove your caliper mount look on reverse side of caliper mount for 2 large hex bolts. Lightly spray around them with some liquid wrench (try not to get spray everywhere). Remove bolts with a wrench and probably a hammer or a ratchet and a hammer. Tap lightly on wrench using short strokes. If this doesn't loosen the bolts use some heat (heated wrench technique) small propane kit to heat caliper mount not too hot just enough to heat it up to just above too hot to touch then reapply wrench tapping lightly. You need a C-Clamp to push the caliper in. After caliper is in remove c-clamp from caliper. If the caliper wont go in you have to replace it. Remove rotor cap with a flat head screw driver and hammer tapping around the edges lightly. Remove the pin out of the bolt behind the rotor cap. Remove nut then remove rotor. Some vehicles will not have a nut and pin system, just a shaft to hold the rotor in place. If the rotor is rusted on tap firmly on inside (back side) of rotor to break it loose from the rust . Spray rust with liquid wrench let sit for 2 minutes then wipe dry. Use a clean cloth or rag to handle new rotor. Slide new rotor on the shaft and replace nut the pin (if no nut and pin continue to next step. Place caliper over rotor and screw in hex bolts on back side of caliper using a wrench or ratchet tighten 1/2 turn of being tight. Re -attach caliper mount onto caliper. Tighten 1/4 turn past tight. Lift truck with jack replace tire and remove jack stands and or blocks from under A frame let truck down and remove blocks

Can't remove pads

I used a screwdriver and hammer to break loose the pads from the bracket they slide onto. Must have been subjected to a lot of heat. Seemed like the pads were almost welded to the brackets. As for the rotor, once you remove the caliper, you have to remove the bracket that holds the caliper. There are two bolts on the back side that secure it. Takes a strong arm and a cheater pipe for more leverage. After this bracket is removed the rotor will slide off.
