      i dunno about a DIY but i can give you a run down.

      jack stand the car.

      remove wheel

      remove caliper carrier slide pins

      move the caliper away from the assembly w/o hanging it from the brake line.

      Remove the 2 big bolts that hold the carrier onto the spindle and remove the carrier

      remove the set screw on the rotor.

      remove the rotor

      make sure that the hub to rotor surface is good, hit it w/ a wire brush and apply a bit of anti sieze.

      new rotor back on, new set screw w/ anti sieze back in.

      Replace the caliper carrier.

      if installing new pads use a C-clamp and press the caliper piston back into the bore to make room for the new thicker pads.

      install brake pads in the caliper carrier.

      Relube/clean the caliper slide pins and install those w/ the caliper.

      wheel back on and you are good to go.

      throw in an impact driver -- always helpful for removing the rotor screws
