A lot of times with rotors depending on the circumstances, the heat and wear will warp the rotors or rust them to the point where they will not come off, usually there are threaded holes or hole where you can get a bolt long enought to put in the holes and turn equally to help pop off the rotors. If this does not work you will probably need a puller that fits your rotor depending on the size. This will pop it off no problem.

Brake rotor and front or rear?

Okay, remove the wheel then remove the brake caliper and move to side do not allow to hang on the brake hose, use a hook to hang off spring or set aside. next remove the caliper bracket, two bolts at rear of bracket to remove it.
next you will use a hammer to remove the rotor.

NOTE: the way the brake rotor was designed was a bad one the hub in which the rotor slides over and the wheel studs slide into holes on the rotor is bad the hub diameter is almost the same size as the diameter of the seat of the rotor that slide over the hub and what happens is sometimes the rust build up on the rotor seat locks the brake rotor on the hub. i do not know if you are reusing the rotors or replacing them, no sure what job you are doing . the rotors to take off you will need to tap on the rear of them with a little force and turn, hit and turn. you will need to see if they break free or if hard beating and spraying into the rear of them is needed with wd40.
Alot of these rotors also have two threaded hole on the face of the rotor near the studs so that you can screw two bolts into holes to help pull them. use wire to tie caliper up and also use a c-clamp to push piston into calipe to remove caliper if needed, Do not remove brake hose, there is no need to open system, here is a picture of the rotor coming of the hub, also there may be clips on the stud holding rotor on remove them use cutters or pry off do not need to reuse , they are to help in holding the rotor on during asm, if you want you can buy them and reinstall them but never reuse them.12_25_2012_5_41_09_pm.png

Remove rear rotors


There is likely a rust ridge on the parking drum area of the rotor. There should be a round black rubber plug on the rotor, Pop it out,and loosen the parking brake adjuster screw. the rotor should then come off.try turning the rotor as you remove it-it may help.

How to remove rear brake rotors on a 2004 Santa Fe


THE REAR BRAKE ROTOR IS A LOOSE ROTOR AND SHOULD COME OFF EASILY. IF NOT, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ROTOR IS HELD BY RUST ONTO THE HUB OR THE BRAKE SHOES IS STILL EMBEDDED INTO THE ROTOR. REMOVE THE HANDBRAKE CABLE TO ENSURE THAT THE BRAKESHOES COLLAPSE AND TRY TO LOSEN IT AGAIN. IF SEASED ONTO THE HUB BY RUST, KNOCK THE ROTOR WITH A COPPER HAMMER TO BRAKE THE RUST WITH A RUST REMOVER.

Im trying to install a new rear hub assembly and cannot get the rotor off. Any sugestions.


Remove the rotors. Rusted rotors will most likely stick to the car due to the iron oxidizing and bonding to the mount of the wheel. If this happens, you are going to need a little force to remove the rotor from the wheel. With the car properly secured, get a single-hand sledge mallet (rubber preferably to protect the rotor). If you don’t have a rubber mallet, use a block of wood to absorb direct hits. Start at the top of the rotor and tap the edge of the rotor gently as you move clockwise around the rotor. Once loose, remove the rotor from the car.
