first thing to do is disconnect the cable between the seats--there are two 10mm nuts on each cable---then climb under the car and disconnect from the rear brakes if drum brakes take off the drumm and you will see the cable--pull back on the sping on the cable,,i lock it with a small pair of vice grips--undo it from the armature and pull it through the backing plate--then pull the cable out of the boby of the car install in reverse---put the cable on the brakes before adjusting the tension in the car good luck

How do you pull the rears rotors off a 1985 Mercedes D190?

Remove rear wheels. Remove both rear caliper and brake pad assemblies. Hang them aside. On the face of the rear rotor check to see if there is an Allen screw securing rotor to axle - remove screw. Be sure emergency brake is not on. Remove rotor. If it doesn't want to come off, emergency brake is probably hanging it up. Locate emergency brake adjuster through wheel bolt hole in the face of the rotor (rotate axle and rotor using a light to locate the star adjuster). Using a screwdrive back off adjuster to release emergency brake shoes. Try again to remove. If it still doesn't come off, hit the face of the rotor at hub with a hammer (not kidding!) as rust may be holding it in place.
