rotor gets stock

anyone has better way to remove rotors from wheel hub?? mine got stock so badly, it won't come off after hammering it everywhere. Is there some kind of tricks other than hammering it??

Thanks

Put some WD-40 and keep hammering. It took me a while also, just hit with all you got (if your putting on new rotors).

if you have access to a sawzall what you could do is cut the rotor down between the vents almost to the hub. then one swing from the hammer and its off. it will split the rotor. brakeing it free from the rust. had to do this many times on ford expiditions spend a good hour baning the rotors having them brake into peices before they would finally brake free. much faster just to take the 10min and cut the rotor about 4 iches down. dont forget to also when the rotor is off to take a wire brush and clean the hub off then put greese around where the rotor sits.

take a decent sledge hammer and keep wacking it inbetween the studs on different sides until it pops off, just had to do it to all 4 of mine. Some rotors have a small hole that is threaded that you can take a bolt and thread it in to pop it off too, only one of mine had that, made it quick and easy. also you can spray some pb blaster (from auto parts store) around your hub to help free it up, on rear make sure e-brake is off.

got it.

Thank you all for the tips. After a can of penetrating oil and a bigger hammer, I got both rear rotors off, a pair of new Brembo rotors and Performance pads in. I felt much better with all parts cleaned up by DIY.
I guess I saved $200?
Thanks again.

My method...a short 2x4 and a 10 pound sledge.

Have someone hold the 2x4 on the edge of rotor and hit it. Go around the rotor and after 5-10 whacks it does the job.

Definitely use some penetrating oil first as well. Spray the lug holes as well as around the center hub. Let it sit 10-15 mins before hitting. Typically I spray the rotors and brake bolts and then go have a beer.

When comes time tom reassemble, get some anti-seize and coat the entire hub surface with it around around the center hub before putting the rotor on. Also, put some anti-seize on the caliper bolts where they thread into the caliper. Next time you pull the rotor, it will come right off...no hammering needed
