rear disc removal

wheel is off, brake caliper and guard are removed the disc seems free enough to come off, but it seems hung up on something, any ideas, does it have a handbrake assembly inside, i think i read on some cars the has to be backed off, any general help in this area would be appreciated, a picture would be better because i do not want to force the disc. cheers

i know,,,i should go get a manual, but i just cant be assed since i am selling it.

stick your head under the rear of the car and look from the axle area at the back of the hub backing plate (assuming its correctly supported/jacked/etc.!!)................just underneath the d/shaft flange is a small oblong rubber bung, remove and with a torch you'll see a small toothed wheel, turn in the opposite direction to the embossed arrow (flat screwdriver or similiar) and you'll 'back' the h/brake shoes off

this should help, re-adjudt to suit when new discs are fitted

online shop!!

job done

thank you all, i got there in the end and i have the cuts on my hands to prove it. the pictures did it, i had tried removing the bung and backing off the brakes, but the cog and the access to it just did not help matters, my solution in the end was a trusty heavy flat mallet, since i was going to replace the discs anyway, i couldnt really do much damage. with hammer and some wd40 they both came off i my hands, now i am waiting on the new ones arriving and the fun will begin again :-(
thanks again,
