What if the Rotor does not easily come off of a 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme what other methods are there to remove it?

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Once the caliper is off then the rotor should come off. If not take a hammer and beat on the rotor. Then it will either come off or crack and come off. If that does not get it off you would have to heat it with a torch.
