Not to sound too rudimentary, but is the emergency brake set?
Also, where are you in the process? The caliper bracket is removed and the rotor is seized to the hub?
You removed the small retainer screw on the rotor right?
I think it's a torx head (t20 or t25), but it might be a philips.
The best way to get it to let go of the hub is to smack it right here with a small sledge:
Alternate hitting it in each spot. It seem counter productive to hit it towards the hub, but the metal rebounds and actually loosens it from the hub better than if you were hitting from the back.
If you are replacing the rotors then you can hit it from the back in the space where the caliper bolts on then rotate it 180 and hit it again and so forth. On those back east or up north cars the hub gets really rusty and sometimes you have to really pound them off. We don't see a ton of that down here in the southwest, but I've still seen enough of them to know that you might be in for a fight.
Remove the three hub bolts on the back of the hub and the entire hub/wheel bearing assembly comes out as one part. It also needs to be replaced as one part.
I just wanted to check and see if you need any additional info.
