Front rotors seized.

Any quick suggestions on how to remove stubborn front rotors? Doing brakes and rotors while replacing the front wheel bearing hubs.

'06 liberty sport. 4WD. 3.7L. 107,000 miles. Original rotors. Never pulled.

The trusty get a bigger hammer and penetrating oil not budging them. Yes I removed the clips.

Should I just get the wheel puller with big center screw and arms?



Ps. The strut replacement was a lot easier than I expected. I did not have to break open the upper ball joint. There was plenty of clearance to R&R.

BFH is all that is needed.Hit the rotor surface,alternate between sides to work it loose.

The bfh may have loosened it. But a set of wheel pullers still couldn't budge it.

But a simple 1/2 inch bolt with a washer and nut used thru the caliper mounting hole behind the rotor worked to pry it off the hub. I found that technique in a YouTube video.....
