I used Blaster penetrating oil, and a big ball peen hammer (but try not to smack the rotor surface too much - don't want to damage it - maybe put an old towel on it keep from damaging it - hit the hub part of the rotor too). You also need allen head (aka hex bit) socket (metric size 6mm or 7mm - mine was 7mm for some reason) for the ajuster hole allen head bolt. I think the caliper slide bolts were 7mm hex too. Also, metric sockets for the caliper braket, forget what size. Go with 6 point. I was able to compress caliper by hand (no need for c-clamp).
