on the rotor on the hat the part the wheel mates with is there a hole or a rubber plug in it

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is I took that plug out and dial back the emergency brake and it still won't come off
Expert:  thomas hill replied 1 year ago.

ya a big rust ridge has built up on the inside edge of the rotor where the e-brake is not wide enough to keep cleaning the rust off and even with it adjusted all the way in it won't go by i would keep pulling and it will pull and working at it and the hold down springs will brake or pull threw sounds like you will have to get a hard were kit for the e-brake

I had to take the whole wheel assembly apart on both rear tires and then I beat the hell out of the rotors until they came off. It ended up being a 13 hour job, but it runs like knew.
