I'm replacing the rotors and pads on my 99 B5 wagon. I've got the caliper off the rear rotor and squirted liquid wrench around the front hub.

I cannot get the rotor to budge. I've whacked it a couple of times from front and back with a hammer, but no luck.

The wagon has 57k miles and these are the OEM rotors.

The wagon is on jack stands right now, so immediate help is appreciated.

Thanks, John

like JDigga said, the rotor should come right off, right now your rotors are only held on by rust, so a couple hits with a malat should fix them right up

Yep, it took several real hard whacks to get it off. I'm bleeding/flushing the right rear right now, and then on to the left rear.

Thanks for the help. John
