Questions concerning the replacement of front/rear rotors

It's finally time to replace the pads and rotors on my 2002 G20 and I am looking for some advice. I have done my share of pad replacements, but I have only replaced a few rotors and I have always had a manual to hold my hand. Unfortunately I can't find a manual for this car so I fear I will need to go it alone. Have any of you knowledgeable people replaced the rotors on a P11 (I would be shocked if not)? If so, would you please post what the job entails? After removing the front tire, my guess is that I have to remove the brake caliper (two bolts) and then remove the hub nut (anyone know what size?). I would guess the rotor slides off, but I think I have read of people coaxing it off with a mallet. Any info, including where to purchase rotors and a manual, would be greatly appreciated.

Once you have the calipers off the rotors slip over the hub nuts so you don't have to remove those.....

Ideally you don't have to disconnect the brake lines either..... Pretty easy really

The rotor might need a little coaxing however when I replaved mine they had been on 7 years & they just pulled off (Factory originals) ..... Put some copper grease between the mating faces when replacing the rotors, that way if they have to come off in future it should be a easy job :)
