    If it's Thunderbolt ignition don't worry about it, as it's common for the rotor/shutter wheel to come off rather hard. Being careful not to bend the shaft, pry the rotor/ wheel up and off the shaft with a screwdriver. Don't worry about damaging the shutter wheel as the new rotor comes with a new one.

    Try using two large flat blade screwdrivers, place them 180deg apart and pry with equal pressure, it should pop right off.
