the only things that are holding the rotor on is 1) the brake caliper which i believe has 2 14mm screws and 2) the brake caliper bracket which has 2 17mm screws holding it in place.once you remove these 2 parts,tap on the rotor( where the wheel goes bolted on )with a hammer and it should come off easily.if not spray some penetrant on the studs that hold the tire on, then tap on it some more and it should come off.hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny

SOURCE: How do I remove my
if it is required to be removed to reomve the tire then there should be a wrench in the tool kit for replacin the tire, in most cases you only need to remove this bolt if you need to get to the wheel bearings so you should only need to remove the outer bolts on the tire. once you get it off to remove the pads simply remove the two bolts from the back side of the calipers and then lift up, be sure to check the thickness of your rotors and drums (if any) if they look to thin you will need to replace them when you replace the pads. if you need to replace the rotors then you will need to reomve the bearing nut, and keep in mind that if the bearings are worn you should replace them at the same time too, it is eaisier and saves you money from having to replace more parts with it later down the road.
