take off the brake calipre to start.

Then basically get a big rubber mallet...or a sledge with a 2x4 board....and beat the crap out of the thing

possible some wd-40 or pb blaster around the rusted areas...although if you are planning on reusing the rotors make sure you use soem brake cleaner to clean the parts before reassembly

or you can do it the easy way and run a bolt into the threaded hole thats between 2 of the studs and tighten it until it pushes the rotor away from the hub

drums usually have a threaded hole too

If they're really rust on, you'll just end up stripping that thread :x . So then you'll tap a bigger hole and it'll strip too :evil: . Then you'll bang the snot out of it till it comes off.

drive the studs out a little, this gives them some play room, then beat the crap out of the rotor until it comes off. Make sure to put a nut on the end of the stud so you dont chew the threads up. I had a rotor on the front of my LX that wouldn't come off.... I beat and beat and beat on it, but it slipped right off when I drove the studs back 1/2 inch.
