    You just need a socket wrench and a metric socket set. You should also buy a torque wrench to properly torque the bolts on reassembly. The rotor is not connected to the caliper, it is bolted to the hub. To do this job, get a Haynes or Chilton manual at you local auto parts store for 20 bucks. It will have all the information and will pay for itself on the first repair. Good luck!
