    Not unless you can get a spanner down behind the disc. They are usually a bit rusty and you'll end up hammering a socket onto them.

    It should only take you 10-15 mins to get it stripped off. I don't think you can remove the guard with caliper and disc fitted anyway.

    3 x M6x10 bolts holds the plate.
    Plan to replace these.
    They'll be thoroughly rusted but can be removed with just the wheel removed, albeit it's tight.
    Spray & soak with Plusgas 2/3 times, try a longreach ring spanner otherwise chisel the head to break the rust bond, a single sharp tap normally frees them off.

    Just did my rear ones. Same principle applies. You’ll need to remove the caliper first.

    Mine were totally rust.

    I tried sockets, spammers...didn’t work.

    In the end it was mole grips as tight as I could get them on, plus loads of plus gas and heat.

    You need m6x10 screws. I got new ones.

    Good luck.
