Haynes is a pretty decent guide for most jobs.

In what way do you mean 'dated'?
It was written 20+ years ago for a 20+ year old car. What is there to change about it?
I agree with Vexorg that it is 'a pretty decent guide for most jobs'.

I agree with Byork!  Colour pics would be better for a start!

Other than the handbrake adjuster, everything should be obvious when the wheel is off.

Safely jack it up, put on axle stands.
I presume you will also do the pads, so take the pins out, push the pistons back in, remove the pads.
Undo the 2 bolts for the calliper and  carefully lift it off (hard brake line!).
Undo the disc screw near the hub.
Handbrake off, slacken the handbrake adjuster in the drum.
Remove disc.

I'd fit new spring and pin kit when putting back together.

It's only in black and white, not sure how much easier it would be in coloured text ;)
