Rust is whats holding the rotor on. Apply wd-40 to the lug stud holes in the disk and around the hub /rotor surface, then tap the rotor between the lug studs with a hammer. Be careful NOT to strike the lug studs or they will become damaged. Sometimes it takes a few bangs. When the rotor comes off, I suggest you use fine sand paper and/or steel wool to clean the mating surfaces so the rotor goes back on easily. Another thing to consider is to mark the rotor prior to sliding it off the hub. I have had a few instances where re-indexing the rotor to the hub induces a brake vibration. Hope that hepls!

A brake rotor is what your brake pads squeeze to slow your car down. The brake pads are mounted in a caliper. When you apply the brakes, the caliper pushes the brakes into the rotor, which then slows down your wheel.Hi, It is a brake rotor, and is the physical disc of a disc brake.

What would cause your car to make a weird jerking motion while you press the brakes?

What you're describing COULD be what is called "disk brake chatter". The problem is caused by heat, which eventually will warp the rotors. If the rotor is warped the disk brake pads grab with different force as the warped rotor changes angle toward the brake pads. If the problem IS disk brake chatter, the only options are to have the rotors turned or replace them.
