the front brake calipers are held on with 2 bolts.So, loosen lug nuts, jack up the side you want to remove tire,remove tire. Then put a jack stand under car to protect and for safety, undo 2 caliper bolts on back side of caliper,take a large flat blade screw driver and gently pry between caliper and rotor to back off caliper pressure to rotor just enough to allow you to slide caliper off rotor.And that is how it is done.
