wheels are off

Thanks to your help and info the wheels came off or broke free using your advice now I find I have to replace the rotors as well now they do not want to come off, I have taken off the brake pad assembly and took off 32 mm nut in hope that would help, then I proceeded to pound the living daylights out of it to now avail any tricks to this or am I missing something thanks again.

none of my biz but how do you figure you can fix breaks when no experience at all, you didn't even know how to take wheel off , I hope this doesn't create a safety hazard for you or your family, it's brakes we're talking about here, take it to a professional for peace of mind.

brakes

I have replaced brakes on my vehicles all my life. I am 50 yrs old. I have never had a hub that seemed to be welded to the rim as this one was. Plus this is my first at replacing brakes on front wheel drive cars I am only familiar with rear drive.

So when the tire and wheel would not come off with convention method ( kicking pounding screaming and cussing) I figure that that damn bolt must be holding something on, any way that is why I am where I am, now I guess the rotors are welded to the thingabob,

Front rotors or back ones?

Oh..and this might sound stupid, being that you have done brakes, but...you DID remove the calliper first, right?

job is done, yes I had the calipers off. Used the bolt in, rotor off on one side. Sledge hammer on the other after bolt holes stripped out.
