JAGUAR S-TYPE BRAKE CALIPER PROBLEM

2003 Jaguar S-Type • 88,000 miles

I need step by step instructions to replace the rear brake pads. I'm unable to remove the caliper (caliper bolts have been removed and the old pads seem to be locked onto the rotor. Does this have something to do with the electronic parking brake automatically setting when the car is shut off?
