Tighten off all caps and watch your steps...It's an 86 Blazer; It's seen it's best days.
Loosen the lug nuts, jack it up, put a jack stand under the frame rail, remove the lugs, tire. There are two bolts on the inside of the caliper that hold it onto the the mounting bracket, they usually have large allen head bolts-remove them, remove the cap from the master cylinder (but lay it on top of the reservior to keep the fluid from getting all over the place)-wedge a large flat bladed screwdriver between the inner pad and the rotor and pry them to create some distance (and allow the caliper to come off the rotor). Take the loose caliper and balance it on the upper control arm or somewhere out of the way but take the strain off the caliper hose so it is not damaged. Now you are going to remove the bracket that held the caliper in place-get psyched, because the bolts that hold this bracket on are torqued on big time, you are going to need a long handled breaker bar-I use a short, 4 pound deadblow hammer to wack the end of the breaker bar to get the bolts started. Once you get then off (there are 2 bolts), your rotor is easy to take off, it either slides off the axle or you remove the dust cap, cotter pin, cotter pin retainer, bearing bolt, then the wheel bearing. Rotor comes off next.
