ROTOR REMOVAL

1994 Ford Explorer

Brakes problem
1994 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

How do I go about removing the front rotors? I have done planty of brake jobs but on this model I cannot remove the rotor without a special tool because of the push button 4 wheel drive. I sought help from my local parts supplier and was told not to take this job on. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
