removing front rotors

Hey guys, could use some advice if there are any special tools needed to remove the front rotors; going to install new brake pads tomorrow with my uncle but were going to resurface the rotors as well. Anyone can tell me step by step what to expect would be great.

After you remove the caliper. You will have to remove the caliper bracket. It's just two bolts, 18 or 21mm I think. Then the rotor should slide right off. If not then some persuasion will be necessary. It's just some rust between the rotor and hub. Rotate the spindle while giving the rotor some love taps with a soft mallet. From the inside hitting out.

They are 21mm. 13/16" will also work.

THanks for the info guys, everything went well today but wow the rust on the hub was strong as hell! We had to beat the hell out of the rotor with the rubber mallet, I was surprised with the level of rust on it.
