Some times the rotors are hard to remove.(rust) Just soak it with wd40 and use a big hammer or prybar. Try smacking it around the studs, But don't hit them. If you smack the part of the rotor that the regular service brake rides on you will warp the rotor. Just keep trying, you'll get it. Also if you mess up the rotor they really aren't that expensive to replace. Plus your old one is likely wore out anyways.

If you have the parking brake system located in the center of the rotor, (the parking brake cable goes inside the "hub" area, and not to the caliper) you have the internal parking brake shoes. The problem is that the drum part gets a rust lip built up and it's very difficult to pull off the rotor because it hangs up. Usually forcing it off stresses some of the hardware inside, but there is not much of an option.

SOURCE: changed frt and rear brake
The piston must be rotated as it is pushed into the caliper. There is a special tool for this that is sold at just about all parts houses. The tool looks like a small square with various pins for various applications that goes on the end of your 3/8 drive ratchet.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the center console covering the parking brake lever. Locate the parking brake lever between the drivers seat and the front passenger seat. Put the parking brake lever in the lowest position.
Turn the cable adjuster locknut to make the nut loose. Find the nut at the base of the parking brake lever.
Raise your GT rear wheels using a jack and support the rear wheels using jack stands. Remove both rear wheels using a tire iron to loosen and take off the lug nuts. Take off the tire from the rods by hand.
Get underneath the car and remove the rubber hole plugs from the brake rotors. Locate the rotors on the underneath inside of the wheel wells.
Take off the brake calipers with a screwdriver, but do not disconnect the brake fluid lines.
Use a pry bar to push up on the parking brake self adjuster wheel. Locate this next to the brake caliper and it looks like a star wheel. Rotate this wheel until the rotors will not turn.
Turn the adjuster wheel five notches in the opposite direction. Reinstall the calipers and wheels. Lower your GT using the jack and remove the jack stands from the rear wheels.
