I have to send in my ST rotors for reconditioning and am gonna swap back to OEMs for about a month or so.  I have the 2015 Service Manual, but it doesn't have a procedure for removing the rotor -- only the caliper.  (I'm guessing that I don't have to fully remove the caliper to get the rotor off).

 

But the Service Manual talks about bleeding the brakes.  Can I assume that they are talking about removing any air and topping off the master cylinder?  Do I need to go to all 4 wheels?

 

Also, I looked for a DIY on here for rotor removal, but didn't find one.  If there is one, does anyone know where it is?  If there isn't one, I'll try to make one, although it might be the blind leading the blind.

Once you remove the calipers the rotors just pull right off.  There is nothing holding them to the hub.

No need to bleed the brakes, because you won't need to loosen or remove the lines at all.
