Can not remove rear discs

Hello everybody
i spent 3 hours for nothing!!!
I have a slk 280 (07) and I wanted to change my rear discs and pads. I have not been able to remove the discs.
I have the impression that they are welded.
you have to know that the handbrake is removed, the small screw holding the rotors is removed and that I can turn the disc with my hand
I hit like a mad with iron hammer.
I did not try with a mass.
Can you help me?
thank you

You need to adjust internally the inner brake shoe adjuster so the brake shoes contracts inwards enabling the disc to be pulled off .

US use rotors, as we use discs.
As Delucas says, handbrake adjustment is important. Others have been caught out by that.

If you have done all of above try some heat on the disc face where it sits on the hub , let it cool down and spray some Wd40 ( be careful if you are saving the shoes ) between disc and hub flange , you can do this by using the wheel bolt holes. You will see a small gap between disc and hub , then leave it to soak in. Next knock disc off with hammer.

If its still stuck its big hammer time but you will end up pulling shoes off back plate ect and end up needing more parts, just how it goes some times

I have had this problem on another car, spent ages heating-bashing-etc, then found and used this method:-




Worked brilliantly. However not tried it on an SLK so might not be possible on one.

hi

Thank you all for your help. 6 hours later and ola perseverance, I managed to dislodge. For that I drove 6kms by intermittently actuating, the handbrake to heat the mechanism and disengage it. I used wd40 and banged hard outside. Now it's over. I will post a 2 photos to show you the result of this human adventure.

By thanking members individually, that thanks will remain in their profile forever. It's nice doing it in a thread but it's better
to use "the button".

Would this invitation to use your 'ramp' be open to anyone of us SLK owners who may be passing your area of Hull ?
