HI,

You dont need to remove the axle shaft nut to remove the front rotors as they are floating rotors. You will remove the caliper and caliper bracket, then remove M8 screw in front rotor face(if brake work has been done by a shop previously, it may not have been reinstalled), then pull rotor off. If rotor doesnt pull off, there is corrosion between the rotor and hub face. Spray with PB Blast or WD40 and then use a rubber mallet to smack either the face of the rotor or backside of rotor a couple of times to pop it free.
