    To remove the rotors you just take off the wheel and the two bolts holding the caliper in place, then hang the caliper out of the way and pull off the rotor, right?

    correct...If the rotor wont come off like its rusted on there and your replacing the rotors...smash away with a hammer....Before you remove the caliper though and if your only replacing rotors not pads...I would stick a screwdriver through the inspection eye of the caliper and pry on the pads to push the caliper piston back in a little bit otherwise you will never get the caliper over the new rotor...

    The car itself can provide the screws you need. The two foremost screws on the subframe (the "U" shaped metal piece) usually fit correctly. These are sometimes covered by the plastic undertray.
