Can't get the rear...

Can't get the rear rotor off.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2012 limited

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Pretty much the same as the front. I had the emergency break on which I thought might have caused the issue but it still won't come off. It's loose but almost like something is holding it on still

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that's it.

Any idea what to do?

HI,

Ok, on the face of the rotor is either an exposed hole or a grommet in the hole you will remove. Spin the rotor so the hole is at the 6 oclock position and then use a screwdriver to deadjust the parking brake shoes until rotor slides off. See attached diagram

Roger. The rotor won't allow me to spin it to a 6 o'clock. Do I need to have both rear wheels up?

HI,

Yes, both rear wheels need to be off the ground and parking brake fully released.
