I replaced my brake pads a week ago but now realize I need to replace my front rotors as the steering wheel shakes whan I brake. I cannot get the rotors off. They seem to be frozen on. I have tried everything I can think of. WD40, Rubber hammer, etc. They will not budge. Any advice?

They must be really rusted on. Caliper been removed? Try heating with propane torch and hammer around outer edge

Actually I had this same problem with my 2007 model. I had to hit the roter between the lug bolts (make sure not to hit the actual rotor, where the pads go) many times before it came off. I had to hit hard though.
