2005 F150 4wheel drive rear rotor removal

How can I get the rear rotors off. Pounding with no luck, do I have to release the parking break somehow?

You may need to back off the parking brake shoe's. There's an access plug on the bottom portion (around 6 oclock) on the backing plate.

I have seen them rust to the axle and have had to crack them in half to get them off. But your most likely culprit is a very thick rust ridge around the inner edge of the rotor causing the e-brake shoes to hang up. Like stated above, back the e-brake shoes off and it should slide right off.... Otherwise, find a BFH and crack the rotors in half if they are actually rusted on solid.
If it ain't broke.....change stuff till it is!

Sometimes you find the locking ring on the studs themselves. Mine had 2 on the rear driver side.
