Removing rear calipers -- 300E

Trying to figure out how to completely remove the rear caliper so that I can replace the rotors.

I removed 2, 17mm bolts at the rear of the caliper ... but there's something else holding it in place and I can't figure out

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

According to the Haynes manual, you "slacken and remove the caliper mounting bolts, then unscrew the caliper from the end of the flexible hose and remove it from the vehicle". By "flexible hose", I assume they mean the brake line. The caliper may still be connected to a brake line bracket.

Thanks for the responses. CJ was right, all I had to do was compress the piston a bit as it was catching the "lip" of the rotor.

Now I gotta figure out how to fix my emergency brake rattle where the outside cable connects into the inside of the brake shoe. Little mechanism there that is loose and hitting metal.
