first u have 2 remove the wheels obviously then remove the whole brake assembly without remove the caliper from the brake line alot of people make this misstake once u have removed the brake assembly which also includes the bracket the brake pads and calipers sit on when all those things are off it should come right off if not then use a hammer and give it a few taps on the back of the rotor and remember 2 sit ur caliper up out the way so no damage is done 2 the rubber brake line that's connected 2 it
