Pull the calipers off, then all you need to do is unscrew one allen bolt and the discs will come right off. Watch your feet, they're heavy

Make sure you clean the surface of the new discs before they go on. I also put a tiny dab of copperslip on the hubs, only a tiny amount.

Parrott, if you're using new rotors bought from a MB dealer there is no need to remove the gray coating before installing them. It's a preservative to prevent rusting.

Thats good to know because I didn't remove it on mine either

Some discs are coated in a light film of grease though, so its worth mentioning.
