I don't know if your Coupe Q has similar calipers with the 4Kcsq but on my 4K
I had to remove the bolts to the guide pins in order to separate the caliper
from the rotor.  Hold the guide pin with an open end wrench as you loosen the
bolt. This sepasrates the brake pad carrier from the caliper.   Hope this
