Sandy, I can only assume that you have fixed whatever issue you were having by now since this post is about 4 months old but, I'd like to give an answer anyway. In order to remove the rotors you obviously have to remove the wheel first. Next you have to remove the brake caliper. To do that you usually need to slightly compress the caliper by squeezing it with a large C-clamp. After it's loose, remove the two hex head bolts, one upper and one lower, that hold the caliper in place. At this point there might be a small ring clip or two around one or two of the lug nut studs that need to be removed. A chisel, heavy wire cutters, or needle nose pliers work well to remove the ring clips. If the rotor doesn't just fall off in your hand, give it a little love tap with a hammer to loosen it and you should be all set. Please let us know how it goes. Thanks.

SOURCE: How do you remove the
I am unsure if it is the same as the model that we have here,but there are a standard set of procedures that apply to removing any brake rotor.
1.With the vehicle jacked up and sitting safely on a stand to avoid falling on you,and the road wheel off.
2.Remove the brake caliper and the assembly that holds this to the hub/suspension assembly.Hang this on a wire or hook to avoid damaging the brake hose with the weight.
3.the rotor will either be a 'floating' type and can be pulled off by hand(sometimes you may have to break the seal of rust on the hub center by striking the rotor face with a soft faced hammer or rubber mallet).Or it may be fixed to the hub with a couple of screws or bolts.The screws are best loosened with a shock tool as they are usually tight and may also be partially seized in threads.
I hope that this helps you,otherwise get back to me with your findings and will endeavour to get correct instructions to you.
