2003 Explorer XLS - Can't take the rear brake rotors off

Anyone else done this before? I have rear disc brakes and the rotors need replaced.

I took the brake caliper off and disconnected the e-brake, but the rotor will not slide off.

I can get it about 1/4 the way off but it's almost like a spring pulls it right back on! It definitely feels loose. I tried the other side and it did the exact same thing. I bought the chilton manual, it just say to take the wheel off and slide the rotor off. Thanks chilton.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Luke

don't let it fool you , it will come off. Use a rubber hammer and start banging from the back side.

Do not bang this off !

1st you need to back off your emergecy brake internal shoes, use a flat head screwdriver and screw the star shaped screw inwards. This is located behind the backing plate.
