you unscrew the tire and take it off then there is a center nut unscrew that and the roder sould slide right off I hope that you do not follow those directions. I would hate to see you go thru a red light because of no brakes, and hit someone. A brake job should only be done by someone who knows what they are doing. If you have to ask how to do it, then I do suggest that you have someone else who knows how to do the job, and watch, and learn. Or if not, then a garage, and then watch. You will need certain tools to do this job. You do not unscrew the tire, you take off the lug nuts, and the center nut, does not just unscrew, you need an impact for that, and besides you do not have to touch that nut. The rotor comes off when you remove the tire and the caliper.
