You'll need to support the vehicle on safety stands. Then take off the front wheels, Then take off the calipers that hold your brake pads. Then take off the bracket that the caliper is bolted too. Then remove the rotor. I suggest replacing the pads as well and be sure to clean the rust from where the pads rest on and make sure they slide easy back and forth, this will help in a longer life for the pads. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Wayne.
To replace the rotors, remove the calipers and then just take the rotors off. If you don't open the hydraulic system (you should not need to) no bleeding is necessary, but you will need to retract the caliper pistons using a "c" clamp in order to get them back over the new rotors. Make sure the slide pins that the bolts go through to hold the calipers on are free and that the piston boots are in good condition to avoid any further problems there.
The location is on a bracket near the upper part of the brake pedal arm (above the pedal).
It's a rectangular box with a harness plugged into it and it has a plunger that depresses when the brake is not being applied.
put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from
