Need advise removing brake rotor

So, I'm well into replacing a rear wheel bearing... got the drive shaft out of the hub, got the brake caliper/pad assembly off. In short, I've got a three-wheeled basket case in my garage. I got to the step that my Bently manual fails to address in depth, actually getting the rotor off the drive flange. I've backed the parking brake shoes off sufficiently, I think, and still can't get the thing to come off. Can anyone tell me if it's probably just the rotor being siezed onto the drive flange (hub)? I'm thinking that if I improvise a press that pulls the disc against the heads of the lugs (that I put back into their holes) that I'll be able to "press"/pull the disc off the drive flange. Anyone have any advise for me before I resort to hammering on it? Thanks, Tom

Tom,

Need to know year, model, a/s/l, etc. There is a section for about every car that this thread will probably be moved into, but we need a little more info. Thanks...

i've never heard of that press thing, but if you have it, I say it's worth a shot, the rotors on e36's and e46's are held on by a 6mm hex bolt, once you remove that, take a rubber mallet and go to town on it until it comes off, 9 times out of 10 the rotors will be seized to the hub, good luck
