I have a 2006 Jeep Commander. How do I remove the rear rotor

This answer was rated:

I have a 2006 Jeep Commander. How do I remove the rear rotor? This rotor is a hybrid disc brake which contains a drum emergency brake. I removed the wheel, brake housing & the emergency brake is not pulled. Is the emergency brake pads keeping the rotor from pulling off?
is the rotor moving at all?

No. I even tried tapping the rotor on all side with a sledge hammer.
ok if the rotor is not moving at all it is probably rusted fast to the axle use some penetraiting oil on it and then tap on it again with the hammer also you can try prying out on it with a prybar once you get it moving you may still need to back off the adjustment for the parking brake there will be an oval plug in the dust shield remove the plug and use a screw driver to back off the adjuster

Do I want the adjuster to go up or down to release tension on the drum?
