    spray WD40 into the bolt holes and try and get it between the disk and hub. Leave it for 20 mins then give it another bash.

    I am assuming you removed the little torx screw

    When all else fails use an angle grinder, just make sure you dont damage the hub.

    Could also heat up the disk with a blow torch to try and get the disk to expand

    Take an angle grinder to it. Cut from one wheel bolt hole to the outside. Hopefully that will generate enough heat to get off put allow you to get more WD40 between the hub and disk.
