handbrake and rotor removal

Thanks for the tips! I did get the rotor off pretty much as you described. Then I found the problem with the hand brake. I was turning the star wheel in the direction that the Haynes manual said which is to move the screwdriver handle in the down direction to expand the shoes. (ON the right wheel.) This was actually bringing the shoes closer together. So either the last guy that did the brakes put the star wheel on backwards or the Haynes manual has it wrong. All works fine now!
