oh crap, help please.

While tightening down a tire a rotor got backed on too far and is now frozen in place. it won't rotate, nor will it come off. it seems to be stuck against the thing that the caliper attaches to. it's the front. i've tried banging it off and i can't get a good prying point. does anyone have any suggestions?

The caliper is connected to the knuckle. If it won't bang off, there should be two bolts that an allan wrench fits to remove the caliper. Take caliper off and give er ****. If that doesn't work then heat it and smash it. Good luck

I had already taken the caliper off. I'd look hella dumb if i was trying to remove the rotor w/ the caliper on. ;c)

I finally got it off, took a really hard, and square hit with the sledge.

thanks though!
