Yes you need to remove the Big nut to remove the rotors this will also loosen your wheel bearings and they will be removed with the rotor. Whilst they are off it is good practice to clean them up and repack them with new bearing grease. If the same rotors are going back on then clean all old grease out of them also. Remember to replace the oil seal on the back of each rotor as well

Left = passenger side (think about it - if the passenger door was the car's arm, it'd be it's left arm).

Better safe than sorry though!

People do this all the time, they get confused when they are standing infront of the car looking under the bonnet.
We drive right hand drive cars so it obvious to most of us that left is left and right is right! :roll:

Probably safest to talk in terms of Passenger side and Driver side
