how to remove rear brake rotor
after removing the caliper and caliper bracket, look at the rotor hub. if you see two small threaded holes on the hub, the rotor is designed to be pulled of with bolts. find a couple bolts the fit those holes and slowly thread them in until it starts to pull the rotor off. work them evenly. when its about halfway off you can whack the backside of the rotor with a mallet to free it up completely.
if there arent any threaded holes, then just beat the rotor off with a mallet from the back. but obviously you CANT reuse the rotor.
