To remove the rotor, you need to remove the brake pads. There should be one bolt at the bottom of the caliper unit. After you remove this bolt, you can swing that part of the caliper up and remove the pads. Next remove the 2 bolts that hold the caliper unit to the hub. Have a string handy to tie up the calipers after you take the bolts off. You don't want to put stress on the brake fluid hose or you could end up with a bigger mess on your hands. On the front of the rotor you'll notice 2 Philips screws. These have to be removed before you slide out the rotor. This is the toughest part of the job if these are rusted and won't come out easily. You might want to have a couple of new ones on hand if you damage the old ones. You'll have to be creative to remove them. After these screws are removed, you can slide out the rotor. Installation is the reverse of removal.
