Raise the vehicle and support it.

Next remove the wheel assembly and calipers, if it has auto hubs separate the hub bearing from the assebly by removing the t25 torx screws and remove the cap, careful not to drop the parts.

Then remove the reubber seal and bridge from the retainer ring space, and remove the ring by squeezing the ends together, this will release the hub body assembly and you can remove it. Then pop off the c shapped washer and spacer off of the spindle. If its manual hubs you can remove the assembly by removing the 6 hex screws.

Next the snap ring will have to be removed, if the body wont come out easily you will have to put a few screws back in and pull it out.

Autohubs you need a spanner wrench to remove the outer lock nut, part d85t-1197-a.

Manual hubs you need t86t-1197-a.

Then what? Once I've got the rotors off, how do I separate the 2 pieces?

That didn't make much sense.

Yes, my question was vague...that is what I was apologizing for.

No, I don't need to separate the hub bearing and the rotor.

I need to separate the hub housing and the rotor. At least those are the terms I've heard being used on them.

I'm attaching a picture, feel free to correct my terminology.
