    Thanks, will go to the store and buy a real hammer. Unfortunately, i live in an apartment and barely have any tools.

    I believe i can remove the top carrier bolt (don't remember). Think i have enough room to use a screw and two nuts to sort of push the rotor away? Something like what is explained in this video

    Fatkids try some sort of degreaser around the hub and on the back of rotor. It's likely just bing held in by some debris or a bit of rust (thank you Canadian weather). When I did mine the drivers rear was on there similar to what your saying. Real hammers are great but use some sort of padding piece of 2x4 or anything that will handle the blow. Metal to metal on some components I just think is not the best, though usually the best solution, but A bad swing can or will cause damage.

    When you put it all back together there should be antisieze between the rotor and the hub assembly, my drivers rear was dry passengers was coated in antisieze. Make sure you coat things a bit. All the bolts too and torque to spec so later on you'll have less issues. Hope you get it sorted.

    Thanks for the tips! I plan on getting some PB Blaster from CT tomorrow and soaking it before giving it another go with the mallet. I am afraid that i will damage the rotor with the metal hammer and it will still be stuck . I put anti seize when i did the fronts as well as lubricated the guide bolts. Next brake job should it a lot smoother :)

    Use a real hammer. A nice ball peen will remove it.

    You aren't going to break a rust seal with a dead blow my friend.

    Can someone with a sedan and a OEM roof antennae please measure the distance from the back of the antennae to the end of the roof? Any references to actual hole measurements and location would be awesome!

    I get 7 & 5/8" from back of antenna housing to where the roof starts to curve. I don't really have time to pop it off for distance to hole though, so hopefully someone has a diagram
