REAR BRAKE ROTOR REMOVAL

2001 GMC Yukon

Brakes problem
2001 GMC Yukon V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles

im having problems removing the rear brake rotors from my yukon. I looked at the new rotors I purchased and from the looks of it there may be something I need to do to the emergency brake or something. Ive tried pounding away with the 3 pounder to no avail. Is there something im supposed to disconnect or something im missing? And yes I have already removed the calipers, pads and caliper brackets. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Remove 2/3 of brake fluild from master cylinder reservoir, remove brake caliper and pads. Rotor should be able to slide off if you have these off. Brake heat may cause them to be stuck on and require banging on it with a rubber headed mallet.
