90% of the time the sequence is identical.
Jack up and support on axle stand.
There should be two bolts holding the brake caliper on - usually on the inside.
Slacken both, but only remove the lower one.
The caliper should then be able to swing up pivoting on the top bolt.
You can remove this top bolt, but support the weight of the assembly with wire to the suspension spring - so as not to stress the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and clean the areas the pads seat on.
Push back the pistons. Some require a special tool, most make do with a wooden packer and suitable large lever - or G clamp.
Fit new pads. Pay particular attention to any fitting clips, springs, rods or pins that are needed.
With new pads in, swing down caliper into position. Fit new attatchment bolts or use a threadlock on fixings. & tighten.
Still with wheel off, depress brake pedal to activate brakes - & check for leaks and working.
With foot off brake, check hub turns with no problems.
Refit wheel and repeat for other side.
ALWAYS replace brakes in axle pairs.
Hope this helps.

Welcome to fixya
Take the wheel off then remove the caliber (brakes ) and then have to remove the nut and pin from the center of the wheel on then it should slide off easy
when takeing off the brakes wen you remove the caliber make sure u us something to hold the calibers piston in like a C clamp or something of that size
hope this helps you out have a good day

Not sure on the 05 Colorado but on my 02 Silverado you turn the key to the on position and pump the gas 4 times.
