Question Removing Front Disc Rotor 2001 Prerunner??

I have a Haynes manaul but it is not real helpful on removing the front disc rotor on my 2001 Preunner V6. I have the caliper/pads off ..no problemo...and WD-40ed up between the disc and hub...but damn that rotor will not come off with "friendly" hammer hitting. Do I have to wail on it to break the rust/corrsion between the hub and rotor? Any magic trick to will it off?? I thought the rotors on the 4WD & Prerunners just sat on the hub (not mechanically connected)....maybe not?

Time heals all ills???

Success..I whamed it after another does of WD-40 and penetrating oil..and it finally broke loose. Definitely the new one is going back on with some lubrication on the mating faces....

Yea they can really get stuck on sometimes, I had to buy some 8mm bolts to get my drums off, good thing they put those nice threaded holes in them
