I had a rotor stuck before.....some pounding got it off. Now that I have a torch I just sit and heat it for a while, and it usually comes loose much easier.

My toyota was the WORST.....it took about 10 minutes with a sledge hammer to get the stupid rotor off......in fact pretty much every non-MB I've worked on (Buick....chevy....dodge.....toyota....) have all needed pounding to get the rotor off. On the MB's I've not had much issue considering how many I have done....on my W124 they slipped right off with no resistance.
