How do you remove rear rotors SLK 320

I removed the caliper and torx screw but the rotor won't budge. Do I need to remove the 36mm, 12 point nut?

Hold the new rotor up to verify you don't need to remove the big nut--I'm pretty certain you don't.

Your problem is the current rotor is a bit rusted to the hub. Hit it with a big hammer.

Thanks for the feedback. I got out the BFH tool but it didn't budge. I suspect I might have to back off the parking brake and possibly use a large wheel puller. I think it might be te combination of rust and parking brake.

It's been a while since I did such mechanical work (like 40 years or so), but I wouldn't think the rotors would be held on by the caliper. Might want to search the web for how disc brake rotors are removed since I would think the MB would be the same as others. I have a VAGUE recollection of having to remove a nut, but I can't say for sure. I also wouldn't think the hand brake would be affecting the rotor removal either.

Hopefully someone else will have the answer. Maybe post a message to DansSLK section. Sounds like something Dan would easily know.

Here's video. Looks like that car had wheel bolts sticking out to put lug nuts on as opposed to our cars that have wheel bolts that screw in.

Anyway, his tapping technique may be helpful.

Caliper ALWAYS comes off before the rotor.
