It's just a hubless rotor that pops right off after removing the caliper and the bracket. If it's corroded around the hub area, use a large hammer to break it loose. Don't hit the braking surface if your planning on re-using the rotor.

Spray some penetrating oil around the hub area. Other then that your just going to have to pay a shop to do it for you.
