They saying that the e-brake adjustment hole is in the drum/disk rather than behind the wheel. Rotate till hole at bottom and then adjust the adjustment back to release the e-brake from drum.

Trying to figure this out myself. Borrowed a gear puller from Pep Boys, SE Pennsylvania, worked like a charm on front with some hammer action. They were stuck on with no e-brake concern. Unfortunately gear puller not fittin well on rear rotors, not big enough and studs interference. Second attempt tomorrow with daylight...

Success! May need to adjust e-brake but I did not. After you remove the two screws, insert M8 bolts in to same holes, use hammer around hub, spray with PB blaster, then turn bolts evenly to push rotor off evenly. Saw this on YouTube and worked like a charm. First side slid right off, other side did hang on e-brake shoes a little bit, but was able to work it off with out adjusting e-brake. If you rotate the rubber filled hole to 6 o'clock posiotio, e-brake easily adjusted with flat tip screw driver.
