hi,
i know the cars here in europe have a nut at the rotor that holds the rotor on his place on the hub .
but today i started to remove the rear wheels and did take of the rear calipers.
but i don't find anything else.
should i just ram it with a rubber hammer? it is full of rust.

Heat applyd where the Roter meets the hub, not to much so u don't cook the bearing and beat with a hammer. If your replaceimng the roter just beat away if not try smacking the center of the roter where the hub contacts the roter between studs. if not beat the outside edge from the back rotate beat some more... Repeat til its free.

The Fieros come with very thin almost like a sheet metal nut, holding on the rotors, stock. Most are long gone at this point, most people didn't they they ever existed. but look for the thin clips on the studs.

Take "LOWTRICKRY"'s advise by using a hammer. Then a bigger hammer. Call in a few friends and form a tag-team match if necessary. Something will eventually give.

(Ask me sometime about left-hand threaded lug nuts on the drivers side)

Heavy metal hammer to the hub! Not the rotor surface, unless you're replacing them. Spray some penetrating oil around the hub and in the lug nuts and let that sit if you need. Might be a good idea to put a few lug nuts on while hammering, if you're a bad shot :P
