C-clamp, and turn it in slowly to avoid damage to brake parts. Take lid of master cylinder is good idea prior, just to help a little.

I fill you in what I learned today. I have a 2005 S-Type Jaguar and the dealer sayed it needed new pads in the rear. They wanted $300 just for the pads and another $150 or so to install. That $450 bucks to replace the brake pads only on the rear of the car. And of course, the extended warranty doesn't cover this, so I said no thanks. I found the best brake pads from Napa for $52. I purchased them through my brothers shop- saved a little. I done lots of brake pad replacements over the years, but not on a new car like the Jaguar. Well they are a little different and the frist one took me awhile . Here is the trick. 1) MAke sure the parking brake is off and you do this by starting the car, stepping on the normal brake and then pushing the parking break lever down while shutting off the car. 2) You then take the tire off, use jack stands to ensure safety.3) Take off brake callipers, 2 bolts and the brake pads should just fall off.4) take the anti-rattle plate off the old pads by prying it off carefully with a tiny screw driver- clean and then install on the new ones. 5) Here I release the the valve for the brake fluid. I did not want to damage the system if the fluid went back into the system when I retracted the calliper. You use some fluid, but you can add when finished. 6)You either need one of those brake calliper tools that you push the calliper in with and If you don't have the trick new one with the keys to turn the brake calliper cylinder, you can get by with the old version like I did and use a pair of channel locks to turn counter clockwise, while continuing to turn the tool. The cylinder needss pressure on it while you turn. This will put in in the proper place. 7) Ensure you have the slots up and down so that the pin in the pad fits up into the cylinder. you know this is correct when you have it perfect vertical and center within the calliper. Pay attention when taking off! 8) Set the brake pads in their proper place and then slide the calliper over them. IT should go over freely or else you need to turn more on the cylinder. 9) Tighten the bolts and replace the tire and you are done. Next side!
Hope this helps. -Dave @ email@example.com

Unless you are mechanically competent, I would not advise you carry out this procedure yourself, but leave it to the professionals.
If you are mechanically minded, and competent, the pads are relatively easy to replace, as follows.
Jack up the vehicle and put on stands, if you don´t have access to a hoist?
Remove wheels, and open the hood, put some kitchen roll around the brake fluid reservoir, to catch any excess brake fluid, when you push back the brake caliper pistons, if it´s been overfilled.
On the front brake caliper's, you are best to put in a little lever between pads and disc, and ease back the piston to fully retracted, unless you have a small G clamp which will do the same job when caliper is adrift.
Remove the 2 x 13mm caliper securing bolts and swing off the caliper, and support with a piece of wire, don´t just let it dangle on the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and sensor wire, check the caliper piston dust cover for splits, and clean caliper, housing, etc, and disc, with brake cleaner.
Fit the new brake pads to the caliper, and refit with 2 new securing bolts with blue lock tite, (normally supplied with the B/Pads.)
The rear caliper´s are pretty much the same as the front, although you can just undo the top bolt and swing the caliper back, but I usually remove both, for ease of cleaning, and inspection.
After rear caliper´s and pads and sensor wire, and new bolts are fitted, pump the brake pedal with the ignition on, and just run around, and check there are no leaks from the caliper pistons.
Check the fluid level, and lower with suction syringe if necessary.
By the way, 1. When did you last change your brake fluid ?
2. Adjust your front wheel bearings end float ?
You could do this now before you fit the wheels.?
Let me know if you wish the details for that too ?
Good luck !
Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please !
Then refit wheels, drop down the car,
