    Well, you need the magic socket to remove the locknut -- there are two of them -- and then the bearing. Then the (brake) hub and rotor should come off.

    You'll need to press out the lugs to get the brake hub off the rotor, if you're replacing the rotor; you might be able to get them turned as one piece.
