Early 1st-Gen Disc Brake Question

One front caliper on my '95 has begun to seize up, so I'll be replacing it soon. From reading, it appears to me that the early - 95-96 (97?) - tacos had a different front disc design.

It looks like that to replace the rotor on my 95, the hub bearing must come off. While on later 1st-gens the disc is just held on with the lug bolts.

Am I right on this? Are the calipers the same - and just the rotor/hub design changed? (I definitely have a 4-piston caliper)

I answered my own question today as I replaced the bad caliper. The rotor came right off (held in place by the lug nuts).

So the online Autozone repair guide as well as the chilton manual are both incorrect, which is good to know.
