It's very easy and any DYI guy can do it. All you need to do is jack up the car, remove the rear wheel, remove the caliper and brake pads, and remove the brake pad bracket. The bracket is held onto the vehicle by two bolts with a torx (star) shaped head. Now you can pull off the rotor and begin your assembly with your new parts. * Word of caution, you may need to hit your old rotor with a hammer to free it as rust may be holding it tightly to your car. If this is the case just work your hammer around the rotor and take your time - it'll pop off. When placing your new rotor onto your car I'd recommend a dap of antiseize for ease of future brake jobs.
