Brake rotor on 2001 Ford Escape

Unable to remove the bracket the the front discs attach to so that I can remove the rotor. Can the bolts be that secure? Do I need a torch? Not enough room to put a pipe over the wrench for leverage.

turn the wheel and it will give you enough room. They are very tight and need to be broken loose
They may be rusted and that will make it very tight. Try spraying them down with a rust penetrant like WD40, wait 5 or 10 minutes, then smack the head of the bolst very hard a few times, this will help to break the bolts free. Just be careful you only hit the bolt heads! Good Luck!
