Your calipers should have two torx bit bolts on the inside of the caliper. Once you get those off, then you will remove the rotor and get a press or c clamp and press the studs out of the plate.

I am in the middle of trying to get the caliper off now. I do not have a Torque wrench so is there any other tool that I could use to get the torque bolts out with like an allen key or something. An if so what size are the bolts?

its a 3/8th in hex nut or allen wrench, to get the studs out hit them with a hammer, to get them back in use two of you lug nuts to do it
