remove caliper, remove dust cover from rotor, remove split pin, big shifter will be sufficient to remove nut, undo by hand, rotor should come off either from a firm pull or a gentle tap on back of rotor.

you will now be lft with rotor and 2 bearing cases.

Take the centre dust cap off, remove split pin and large nut. rermove bottom bolt from calliper and pivot up on the other bolt. wiggle disc towards you and bearings and all will come with it.
Take the wheel off first if you want to make it easier. lol
