If you don't own or have access to some jack stand and a decent floor jack, I would suggest you need to pay a mechanic for their services.
If you do then after parking on a level area and jacking up the front end and placing on the jackstands. Remove the tires, the disc brake pads, then disc calipers then the end caps from the axles the retaining hardware, the rotor will then slide off the axle. Check your bearings for any signs of wear, you going to need to repack them when your finished so purchase some wheel bearing grease. Gloves are real help here as well. Clean the rotors and have the shop turn them, if they are beyond the service limits then they will require replacement, replace the disc pads. NEVER reinstall old pads on freshly turned rotors, you would have just wasted all your time. Reassembly is the reverse of the removal, take photos if in doubt. Torque the retaining nut to specifications, lug nuts too! Plan for at least a half day job to complete this assuming on problems occur. Inspect your brake hoses as well and cracks in them would indicate time to replace them, that also means bleeding the brake lines for air when done. Hope I have not scared you away from this, honestly it is a simple remove and replace operation, if you have minimal mechanic skills and the tools you all set, good luck. Now if you know a mechanic, might invite them over for lunch to assist you, mechanic usually never pass up a free meal when they don't have to get their hands dirty.... Good Luck

An impact driver, No. 3 phillips screwdriver bit, and a hammer may be needed to remove the retaining screw. It is fairly easy to destroy the screw slots using an ordinary phillips screwdriver to remove the tightly driven screw (see photo).
