Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix
The grand prixs that have rear disc breaks actually have a mini drum break built into the inner rotor which is the parking break...i know this from experience since my grand prix had the same problem i couldnt get the rear rotor off and found out that some how the inner drum parking break had become seized and wouldnt allow the rotor to come off...bout all you can do it try to adjust the parking break tension which should be located by the gas tank and hope that it frees it up enought so that you can take off the rotor other wise a can of pb blaster and a rubber mallet to force the rotor off...which will probably mean your going to have to guy new shoes for the inner break along with a new rotor...heres a couple sites i found useful...

Hello! There isn't anything that would keep the rotor from coming off of the hub assembly other than the caliper assembly. Are you meaning to say that you're having a problem removing the caliper bracket and caliper?
