How does one remove the rear disc from this vehicle? In the past, I have removed dozens of discs and drums and have had to adjust the parking brake star wheel to remove rear drums. However, the rear discs will just not move on this vehicle. Is a special tool required to remove these discs?

    The parking brake bads have worn into the drum/rotor assy to the point that they are acting as keepers now, preventing you from removing the rotor/drum. Beat on it from the inside surface of the rotor until it pops off, the parking brake pads are in by spring pressure and they will come off with the rotor/drum assy.
