They are easier than other models. They have floating discs, you undo the 2 bolts to the bracket that the calipers bolt to and the rotor slides of.

may take a small amount of persuasion to get the disc to slide off. few well placed taps with a hammer should do it.
AU and upwards have a sealed bearing and disc's floating on the studs. makes things a lot easier!

Wow,,, I can not believe how easy it was.. took a lot of strength to get the bolts out that hold the Pad bracket on but did the fronts in under a hour.. so easy..

had the same trouble with the bolts on the calipers. ended up needing a bigger breaker bar and a better socket cause the last thing you want is to round the bolts off
