Just remove brake caliper,and rotor should just slide off,no speacial tool needed.Make sure you block up car good for your safety.

May have to bump them a little,but should come loose.

Sometimes the rotor gets "frozen" onto the hub (rust, corrosion). It may need extra help for removal. Maybe a few light slams :) Plus being a 99, I doubt they are factory rotors, but look for retainer clips that are sometimes put on the lug studs from the factory. They are light sheet metal clips that come right off with a pair of pliers.
