Removal/replace rear rotors on 93 landcruiser I have gone some wa
I made mistake of taking out axle (only pulled it out about an inch but may have small leak at gasket. Problem is cannot get rotor off. I need to back off handbrake but cant find adjuster. also grommet in rotor is this protecting a stud and if so is it a hex nut inside (size?) or is that an adjuster if so which way does it turn. Any other suggestions much appreciated. I live in the bush and cannot find my manual urgent!

The plug is for adjusting purposes , there should be two other holes that are threaded , insert a bolt that fits into each one and tighten til rotor comes off , might also have to smack with a mallet to break loose , toyota rotors are very tight fit
