1) block the front wheels. 2) jack up the rear wheel being worked on. 3) Remove the tire 4) Loosen and remove the bottom caliper bolt. 5) loosen the top caliper bolt. 6) Slide the caliper up out of the way. 7) Slide the rotor off the hub. I've done all four of mine. Takes about 10 minutes per wheel. I just realized you asked about a 1988 Caddy, I thought I read 1998. It should not be a big difference, though.

You're gonna have to remove what's left of the bolt. If it's broken off flush, you'll have to drill it out and use an extractor. If there's any sticking out, you may be able to use vise grips.
