Ok, If you got the two bolts or pins out of the caliper, you may have
to shove the piston back just a bit. This should free up the caliper
enough to remove it from the rotor.
You will then have to take the axle nut off, then there should be IIRC
4 bolts in the back of the spindle holding the bearing on. You may have
to put a chisle or something in between the bearing Assby. and the
spindle to get it loose.
Most likeley has ABS also, just take note of how the wire is fed
through with the bearing. The wire IIRC again, may run up to a
connector at the frame.

Yeah, I've got the two caliper bolts out, and the axle nut out...I just
couldnt get the caliper off, so when I start on it today again I will put a
c-clamp on the caliper and push in the piston a bit. I do have ABS and I
have the wire on the new assembly, I saw how it goes up onto the frame.
I think your talking about The Calipiar mount or "anchor'(sp?), If
it's keeping you from getting the rotor off, then yes. As of course you
have to remove the rotor.
I think it does have to come off on that model. Should be IIRC two
bolts with 18MM heads holding it on.
After about three hours and a lot of searching for tools (that took most the
time) I got it done! Yeah, it looks as if everything in the front end is
18mm, thats the only socket I had to use except the 13mm for the strap bolts
on the ABS wire. All went well though.
A tip on calipers. When the are resistant to coming off. Take a small
prybar/medium flat blade screwdriver. Pry the caliper side to side thru
the open 'inspection' port in the top of the caliper. This will compress
the piston slightly.
