Hi all,
I was trying to remove my rear rotor to adjust the park break shoes but it loks like its been rusted on.
Any ideas on how I could get it off?

Cheers
Dave

as he said a little wd 40\penetrene and use a soft hammer \wood and and tap between the studs,this jarrs the disc-loosens the rust and it will start to spring off,until you can hand move it,then clean the rust off both,adjusting the brake-use verniers to measure the drum and set the brake dia.you have to jack both sides to turn the wheels.you will find plenty of brake dust and the shoes may be glazed-need to be roughed up with sand paper---cloth backed is best,flexible,as used in machine shops or sanders\linishers.

WD40 and a slight firm but gently tap should loosen it

wind in the hand-brake shoes.
It will then slide right off.
when re-fitting you will need to wind them out till it almost binds, then back a fraction till it spins freely.

and rust on the spigot and disc,the shoes are close to the disc so you cant get much of a wiggle,it has to come off square with the rust.
