Put her up on jack stands, remove the wheels, remove the 2 caliper bolts, slide the caliper off and hang it using a coat hanger (or similar) so you don't damage the brake hoses. There may be a gnarled washer on one of the studs that you'll have to remove, then just slide off the rotor.

Don't worry about replacing the washer when putting the rotors back on.

The car has been on stands for a couple weeks now with the calipers already removed so I got that done. When I have the chance ill give it a shot. Is there a certain way you take the washers off?

Whatever you can. Snips, hammer and screwdriver, etc... They can be tough, but I'm sure you'll be fine.

Why wouldn't you need to replace the washer?

i never have, plus the wheel and lugs will hold it in place so I don't see the need. Check this out...

Finally was able to get to taking the rotor off but had another problem. The 2 bolts in the back to take the caliper assembly off the actual rotor is rusted like no other and wont even budge. I sprayed WD40 on it over 15 times and let it soak. And there is no possible way of squeezing the rotor out of the assembly without taking it off. Im stuck and frustrated

Ever get the bolt out? I'm installing drilled and slotted rotors soon.
