How do you adjust the parking brake enough to get the rear rotor off the axle and bearing?

You need to put the parking brake system into lock out mode. To do this, remove the center floor console. With the lever in DOWN position, pull up on the core cable rotating the drum until the drum cut-out aligns with the hole on the lever tabe, then install a punch in this hole and drum cut-out. Release the grasp on the core cable and the parking brake will now be in lock out.
