Jack it up and remove both front wheels.

Using a large hex (allen key) wrench (which size? 3/8"? Remove the caliper bots (from the inside of each caliper).

Lift the calipers off the rotors, and use a coat hanger to support them so they don't hang from the brake line.

If you have them, remove 2 or 3 metal retainer clips from your rotors/lugs. Slide the rotors off.

If your lugnuts are "open face" you may be able to put the wheels back on, but I wouldn't recommend it. Just leave it on stands.
