rubbuh hammuh, or one of those softblow double die hammers, after you pick the rings off. Not for the faint.

Blast with some rust breaker then smack it around. Before you put them back on or new ones on... clean up the area.

Put a pry bar between the bracket that holds the caliper and the rotor. Apply alot of pressure and use a dead blow or brass hammer to hit the rotor itself. it will break loose after about 3 good hits (well...it should) .

if you're not sure what I mean, check out my HOW TO on changing rear wheel bearings and there is a pic showing me removing the rotor

good luck!!

Your ebrake shoes might be stuck and hold the rotors on as well, expect to replace them.

if the ebrake shoes were stuck, wouldn't that cause some majore issues when driving? (smell and heat):confused:

Not necessarily. A lip of rust tends to form on the inside "drum" of the rotor on the edge just past the ebrake shoes and its just enough to make it hard to take the rotors off.
