Default Front Brake Rotor Replacement

How do you remove the brake rotor? I removed the 2 phillips screws,but no luck. Is this rotor attached to the hub,or just rusted on/

Any help

Thanks

They are rusted on. Here's a simple solution that works for most cars:

I know this is an older thread, but does anyone have any other suggestions? I'm trying to remove the front rotors from my 04 (which has 03 rotors) and I've even resorted to using an 8 lb sledge with no luck at all. Why is nothing on this car ever simple like it should be?

Try spraying some PB Blaster so that it will get in behind the disc and let it sit for a while. Try what is shown in the youtube video. If that doesn't work resort back to the hammer.

My friend's Highlander was like that. There were spots on the disc where you could thread bolts to break the connection but instead it actually tore the metal apart, that's how badly they were rusted on. After letting them all sit for a half hour I was able to get them off using the hammer again. Good luck.
