On my 2000 Sonata, it was pretty straightforward. Loosen lug bolts on wheel. Jack up the car and finish removing the wheel lug nuts, remove tire. Remove brake calipers. Two bolts. Suspend caliper to remove weight from the caliper hose. The rotor should be able to be straight pulled off. It might need some banging with a rubber mallet. Use eye protection. Make sure your parking brake is off, as the parking shoes are inside the rotor and will hold the rotor tight if on. If this is unsuccessful, there is one or two screws on the rotor that can be removed and a longer screw inserted and tightened, this will lift the rotor off of the inner hub. Don't break the screw. Slide the rotor off, then replace it with the new rotor, replace caliper and probably a new set of brake pads. Replace wheel and lug nuts, lower car to ground and finish tightening the lug nuts to torque found in owners manual.
