Take a rubber hammer and beat the crap out of the rotor to get it off. It will be rusted on. WHen I say beat it, I mean beat it like your a pyscho. U gotta hit this thing hard.

If that don't work, spray on some WD40 or other penetrating oil to loosen up the rust.

And it came off showing all the rust holding it on after beating on it for 5 minutes straight.

Parts removed up to this point.

Make sure you set you caliper on something until your ready to remove it to prevent damage to your lines.

Now time to clean it up prior to reassembling with my big brake kit.

And that is it. When your ready to remove the caliper and line, just unscrew it.

Hope this helps if anyone needs the info above. Any questions just ask.
