SOURCE: changing brake pads
There is no "easiest way" to remove the pads. You need to unbolt the calipers, (bolts are on the inboard side surrounded by small rubber boots) retract the caliper pistons and remove/replace pads,(make note if any pads are marked R&L) put it back together. Make sure that slides that caliper bolts pass through move freely. Don't use calipers with torn rubber dust boots and don't pinch boot between pad and piston when you reassemble. Unless you open the hydraulic system you do not need to bleed. Before attempting to drive, depress pedal a few times to restore proper caliper adjustment.

Per Chilton Auto repair manual:
Removal & Installation
WARNING Support the brake caliper with mechanics wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose.

no that is only the older rear calipers on gm and others. the fronts do not have that style caliper and sound like the calipers are frozen and may be way your changing the pads. try opening the bleeder screw and then compressing them if they go then you need need brake hoses and if not you need calipers. god luck man
