Brakes problem
2006 Mitsubishi Outlander 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 50000 miles

I'm trying to remove the rear rotors to replace them. I have them loose enough to wiggle and pull out a little but it feels like there's a spring holding it on. Any Ideas?

Should come off, may be stuck due to brake heat. try knocking loose with rubber mallet..

I can get the rotor away from the hub about a 1/4" with the pry bolts, but when I back them out the rotor sucks back into the hub. Its loose enough to wiggle and pull out alittle with my hands. Could there be anything attached to the inside of the roter?

Not supposed to be anything attached. You disconnected the brake hose correct?

I took off the caliper but left the hose attached to it. The only other hose I can see is a short thick one about 4" long, It comes thew the frame and attaches to the back of the hub. The collar is smooth, no way to detach it inside the wheel well. I think it's for the emergency brake.

Ensure your park brake is not engaged and try adjusting the park brake shoes

How do you adjust the parking brake shoe? I've never done that before.

There should be a plug covering up the adjustment hole on the brake rotor. pull the plug out and insert a flat-tipped tool (screwdriver etc..) to turn the adjuster . diagram is below on which way to turn it..
