My Ride: 01' 325i-AT
RR brake rotor removal issues

first off this is on a 2001 e46 325i automatic

so everythings off, in theory and going off of every diy here, the rotor should be easily removed at this point (like my gti these cars use bolts not studs so they're just sitting on the hub after retaining bolt is removed) however one side of the rotor comes off the hub freely while the other side comes up about 1/4 inch and wont come any further, obviously its not some unknown form of elastic rust that's holding that section of the rotor close to the hub. Has anyone encountered this issue, is there something im missing, I called the mechanic that ive done some bartering with for shop time and asked if he could look some stuff up on the comp to see what it could be and he said theres a possibility that theres basically a miniature drum break in behind the disc (seems like a ridiculous idea to me but... its a euro ive seen crazier things) can I get any validation on this? not trying to beat the piss out of the rotor and have to turn around and replace wheel bearings in a month.

thanks in advance and sorry for the book

Figured it out, buddy didnt fully disengage the e-brake when he blocked the tires another case of "if you want it done right you gotta do it yourself" *sigh*
