Cant get rotor off of 2000 mustang

Trying to replace my front pads and rotor on my 2000 mustang. I have all the caliper bolts off (12mm and 15mm) so shouldn't the rotor just slide off the hub now. I also checked to see if the factory clips are holding it on but there aren't any? DO I just beat it off with a rubber mallot or something?

1982 GT
351w(.060), ported & polished heads with 1.94/1.60 valves, 10.3 comp, stealth intake, 274XE cam, Holley 750 dp, Mallory dist., shorty headers, flowmasters, 4:10 gear, c-4 with 3700 stall converter, subframes, electric fan

I assume you have pulled the caliper off of the rotor?

Uhhh...yeah. I know THAT much. That's pretty much common sense.

Sorry I do not know you or your ability's and I have seen it tried before, It could be rusted to the hub Try striking the hub area with a good size ball peen it should break the rust free. post up a picture if that dose not work.

If you're replacing the caliper hit it with a Big Phucin Hammer. If you're keeping it, hit it with a Big Phucin Rubber Mallet. Or a 4X4...
