No, not really. After you get the caliper off, the rotor should just slide off- but- there may still be the factory retainer on one of the studs which you can destroy with a hammer and chisel. If the vehicle's parking brakes are separate from the disc brakes, then the piston for the caliper can just be pushed back in, with the bleeder opened. This is so dirt doesn't get pushed back into the system possibly damaging your ABS system. If the vehcile has combined parking/service brake calipers, then the piston will have to either be twisted back in with a special tool, or there will be a screw on the back of the caliper for just this purpose.
