You don't have to take that off (and you don't want to, as I found out--getting that spring back on is a pain!). I used a vice grips to loosen it, then got if off with a small open-face wrench (12mm).

The pins / wedges just tap out use a scewdriver on the metal edge of the pin just tap it out to the rear and when putting them back in just tap them back in from the front. You will see they are diamond shape and metal cased around rubber very easy to do just take your time.

SOURCE: How to release tension on
you should'nt have any tension on the parking brake,unless it's on. check the parking brake to insure that it's in the off position. chock" the rear wheels,to make sure the car does'nt roll while you're jacking it up and "always use jackstands,do not trust your jack" does your brake caliper piston have a + on it?it will be on the brake caliper piston itself, if so,then you need to back the brake caliper piston back in by turning it counterclockwise,auto parts stores sell a special tool to back the brake calipers back into place, i've always used a straight screwdriver,to turn the piston counterclockwise some do turn clockwise though to retract the brake piston. a simple call to the auto parts store where you're purchasing the brakes will tell you which way the piston will need to be retracted.other wise,it's a simple brake replacement,just push the brake caliper cylinder with a "C" clamp to retract the brake caliper, also,if you are replacing brake rotors,purchase the brake kleen to spray on the new brake rotors when you replace those.they have a clear film on them,you'll need to remove that film to insure no future issues with the brake rotors.simply spray the front and back of the brake rotors with this spray to remove the protective "film"and as always,thank you,for choosing fixya.com!
