Brakes problem
2005 Lexus GX 470 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 57000 miles

I am replacing the rear rotors and pads and I am having trouble removing the old rotors. The emergency brake is off and the calipers are off. I have two 8.8 mm bolts to brake the rotor from the wheel hub. It appears there are some interior brake pads (maybe the emergency brake pads) that are still engaged. How do I complete the removal of the old rotor? Am I missing a step? The front rotors were easy but the rears are a little more difficult.
