Having issues removing the rear disk brake from a 2013 Volvo XC90R

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XC90 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am. I removed the wheel, the caliper, removed the caliper mount, took off the 10mm screw for the disk. Taped it free, but it appears to have two hooks that hold the disc in place

Mechanic's Assistant: Besides this, what condition is the car in?

Good condition I originally was replacing the pads but the passenger side disc needs to be replace

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

Need to know about the process of taking the disc off
