brake rotor issue

Finished bleeding brakes and started to put the wheels back on. Started at left rear and found the brake rotor had moved on the hub and now the holes don't align to put the studs in. All others are okay. What have I done, and how do I fix it. All help is appreciated.

There is a screw that holds the rotor to the hub; is it missing?

Yes. Empty chamfered hole. What now?

Rotate the rotor to line up the hole.
The screw is only there to hold to rotor in place until a wheel is mounted.
Its Ok if it is missing

In reality, all that matters is the holes in the rotor line up with the lug bolt threads so you can thread in a lug bolt

I had that happen and I used a wheel hanger (temporary long straight bolt to help hold the wheel in place while you mount them) to line up the holes while I got the wheel on. Still not too hard without anything there, just have to be more deliberate.

Thanks. Just can't get the rotor to turn. Think I'll have to remove the caliper.

Release the e-brake. The rear rotors have brake shoes inside the "hat"
