The rotors are pretty easy, too, though. The only "hard" part is that you
need to remove the pad carrier from the strut housing: two 17mm bolts, which
should be torqued to 92 lbs/ft. You'll probably need a breaker bar on your
ratchet handle to break them loose...

Tap with a hammer around the lug bolt holes on the face of the rotor to
free it. If you're just going to throw the old ones away, it's faster to
just bang away from the back (this *will* dent the rotor!)...
