first remove the wheel then you need to remove the two bolts on the back of the brake caliper(this is what holds your brake pads in place) after you have the caliper off be careful to not just let it hang as you could damage the line use a bungy cord to hold it up out of the way now you just pull or smack the rotor off it is not held in place by anything, the caliper and wheel hold it in place and now that they are off it is free it might be hard to break loose because of heat and corrosion but just give it a wack from the back with a rubber mallet and it will come free
