Default Removing Front Brake Rotors

1992 Camry Le. I cannot get the old rotors off no matter what I try. First
I tried hammering them off from behind. Didn't work. The I put a wheel
puller on them. I generated enough force to break a chuck off the rotor but
the rotor still did not budge. I can't believe rust can hold them on that
strongly. Somebody please help me figure out what is holding these babies
on. Is there some retaining clip or something the Chilton book is not
showing?

There should be 2 threaded holes in the rotors; these will fit a 10mm
bolt. Take a bolt long enough and wrench them in. It should pop off.

I don't recall ever running into any retainers on a Toyota, but have had
similar problems removing the rotors. This works every time.
