HI, Once the caliper is off, the rotor should just slide off, but many times due to some corrosion build up between the back of the rotor and the hub face, they dont and feel like they are welded on. To remove them, spray the face of the rotor around the lug studs going thru them and around the center with some PB Blast or WD40. Let soak for a few minutes, and then use a rubber mallet or dead blow hammer to hit the face of rotor hard between the lug studs. This should pop it free. It it doesnt, then place a block of wood on backside of the rotor and smack with a 3-4lb hammer. That pops it free everytime.
