All you should have to do is pull the rotor up and it should come roight out, and all you have to do is push a new one back on, it will only go on one way. In addition to the accurate response above, if it's the original rotor, it may not just pull off easy as there will be a bit of rust on the stem. If so, carefully use a long flat head screwdriver to pry it up from the base of the rotor.
