I am trying to remove my front brake rotors and I have remove everything but the rotors up to this point. I was inform on my 03 that it should come right off, but that is not the case. I have been using a rubber hammer to apply force to it to loosing and come off, but that is not working. Can someone help me so that I will not damage anything and cost myself more money and needed.

They are probably stuck around the hub area. Spray some penetrating oil around there and try to jar them loose. If you are replacing them anyway, hit them with a heavy hammer from behind.

Also the old rotors and the new ones do not have that screw that some people are talking about should be removed. All I see is the 2 lock washers on two studs, is that all I need to remove the old rotors which I will not be using. Do you think I should use a slug hammer?
