Rotors installation

Is it possible to remove the rotors without taking apart the caliper and pads?

NoWay, caliper clamps around rotor. Easy to take off and move to the side.

Okay I was wondering because there's 4 bolts the top ones that remove the caliper from the bracket and the the bottom one that releases tht bracket from the rotor ... So I was guessing if I took the bottoms one without the taking the top ones the caliper would come out with the bracket and pads together

Should be two bolts that holds the caliper to the spindle. One up by your strut bolts (where it bolts to the spindle) and one a bit lower

That is correct, 2 bolts not 4. And you need to slide the caliper off to get the rotor off.

Rotor won't come off without the caliper bracket removed. It takes all of 2 minutes to take apart a caliper.
