Remove the caliper and the caliper mounting bracket. Next look closely at the center of the rotor around the wheel studs, some cars have a small countersunk Allen bolt as a safety here, if your car has it remove it. After that you just need to bang them off. They get corroded and can be very difficult to remove some times, just hit them with a big hammer, don't be afraid. This is hard to describe but you don't need to try to hammer the rotor off you only need to break it loose by swinging TOWARDS the vehicle and hitting it where the pads contact, keep hitting it at opposite sides. Have you ever removed the lug nuts off a car and had to slam the outer edge of the tire inward to break the frozen wheel loos? Well that's basically what you need to do with your hammer to the rotor, it shouldn't be too difficult, and the rotor is only bolted to the vehicle by the rim once the lug nuts are tightened down.

Removing Front & Rear Rotors Well Guys... I remove my Front & Rear Rotors out of my 1998 Ford Expedition XLT. I rented a 3 Jaw Puller from Auto Zone and a bottle of PB Blaster and a sledge hammer it only took about one hour or less to take both off... The way I removed the Front & Rear Rotors was ... 1. I put lots of PB Blaster in the back and the front of the rotors to be removed. 2. I put plenty of tension with the 3 Jaw Puller... 3. I hit the back of the rotor with the sledge hammer... And it came right off... Hope this helps someone out there...

If you have a Oyy-Acetalyne torch, then heat the hub and beat the rotor with a sledge hammer. Those rotors can be a pain to get off.
