Hello Everyone

Hopefully you can help. I am trying to replace the rear rotors on my 1983 944. I have the caliper off and I am unable to pull the rotor off. I saw a vid about sticking a screwdriver thru a hole in the rotor to relieve the drag that may be created by the parking brake. Unfortunately, I do not have that hole in my rotor. But, each side turns so perhaps it is not the parking brake. I have tried using a weighted hard plastic hammer to try hitting the rotor to free it but nothing.

What am I missing here? Is there something special I need to do to get the rear rotors off?

Thanks,
Ed

rotors have a way of rusting to the hub. Make sure ebarake is loose as that can be a pain to loosen off then just work at it.

Yup, release that e-brake! I can't tell you how long I banged on my rotors before figuring it out.

I finally got them off. Had to use the jacking hole bolt thing. The ebrake is frozen though. While it is apart I am gonna see about getting replacement parts and cables.
