Any advice on this before I start? I've done this with my old Corolla

Should be the same deal as the rotors on a corrolla. The only difference
here is that the parking brake shoe is inside a little drum in the center
of rotor, and sometimes they hangup the rotor from coming out. But most
of the time, they come right off.

Haynes manual has a pretty good description of how to get it off. I
recently purchased my 2000 Camry v6 used so I took off the wheels to
inspect the brakes.

The driver's side rear rotor had a half circle opening to loosen the
shoe adjuster. After turning the adjuster a couple of times, the rotor
came off with a slight tap of a rubber mallot.

I think my car has aftermarket rotors because the passenger-side rear
rotor is missing the small hole that you need to loosen the parking
shoe adjuster. I wasn't able to get that rotor off. Since the pad and
rotors looked almost new, I wasn't too worried about inspecting the
passenger-side parking brake shoes.

The drivers side parking brake shoe was within tolerance, but I plan to
replace them later this year. They cost a fortune at the dealer and I
can't find aftermarket shoes.

Make sure you have a piece of string or something to hang the caliper
while you are working on the rotor.
