your rear rotors must have the parking brake OFF before you take the rotor off!! those springs are for the parking brake. if you mess with the rotor while still in park, you can knock a spring loose and make it very problematic to get it put back on ( its not easy to access). so bottom line:
loosen lug nuts while car still on ground. jack car up and take tires off... then take off the caliper and its braket ( all of this with no parking brake) after all is removed and out of the way ( make sure the caliper is safely hanging ( not by the brake line) then you can try tapping the rotor off. also there are 2 smaller wholes on the rotor that are threaded if you look closely... if the rotor does not come off upon tapping, find a bolt about an inch long that fits thats thread, screw it in and litterally push the rotor out from behind. i find that the best in dealing with a stubborn rotor. \
slide your new rotor in... out your bracket back in with the caliper (you may have to get a "C" clamp to push that piston in a littler bit to get it over the rotor ( this is because there is more rotor and if you did your pads, more pads as well.. so it wont fit back how it was with the old rotor and or pads. you have now got everything hooked back up and your wheels are back on. its now time to test drive. before backing out on a sloped surface. please tap your brakes until you feel pressure ( you pushed the piston back so you may have no brakes for the first 2 or three times you tap it.
lastly if you did put new pads in, to avoid squeeks, on either side of the pad are the lips the stick in place to hold them within the bracket. lube those up with brake lube ( you buy them in small packets for a buck each) this is important in preventing annoying sqeeky brakes

SOURCE: Remove rear rotors
There is likely a rust ridge on the parking drum area of the rotor. There should be a round black rubber plug on the rotor, Pop it out,and loosen the parking brake adjuster screw. the rotor should then come off.try turning the rotor as you remove it-it may help.

The only thing you can do is to use cheesel, and knok out the rust built up on the edge of the rotor; once
you do that, you will still have to use a hummer to manuver it out; use
pry bar to hold on one side pressing out as you hammer it on the other,
will need to change sides until it is out. There is adjuster nut on the cables at bottom of handle, you can loose it there...
Just check this procedure for Brake Disc (Rotor) - Removal & Installation
NOTE If the disc cannot be removed easily, turn the parking brake shoe adjuster until the wheel turns freely.
If this isn't solve it, click on the links below for the instructions. Disregard any or don't do anything that refers to removing hoses or bleeder screws. This only applies to overhauling the calipers. The calipers can be hung on the hoses or the metal brake lines on the front just be careful and use common sense not to crimp or break the lines when getting the calipers out of the way to remove the rotors. If the rotors don't come off on the reare you may need to adjust the ebrake shoes back a little bit:DOWNLOAD 1
Hope this helps.
