You have to pull of the cap in the centre of the disc (in the centre between the bolts which hold the wheel to the rotor), you will need to pry it off with a screwdriver or something like that. You will then see the main bolt which holds the disc rotor on. Take out the split pin, and then the luck nut, adjustment nut and washer. Then the rotor pulls straight off.
