1992 300D rear rotors

Does anyone have any tips on removing the rear rotors. I want to check the parking brake shoes because I have had to adjust them several times recently. But I can't get the rotors off. I backed off the brake shoes and used PB Blaster and beat the things with a rubber mallet, and I still can't get them off. Any suggestins would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, dtimmester

Hit the rotors harder. If you don't want to scar them up use a brass hammer.

Use a bigger, heavier hammer.

Spray some blaster on again around the mating surface, even near the lug bolt holes, you want to gat as much penetration as possible.

get a good two handed grip on your hammer (big hammer) and stand to the side and whack it near the lug bolt holes a good five or six times, it should finally pop free.

Had a similar problem the other week with my 300SD. A 3lb dead blow hammer from the back worked very well.

dtimmester, before you start beating too hard on the rotor consider installing one of the lug bolts a few threads so when the rotor finally breaks loose it doesn't fly too far.
