jack up car, remove the road wheels, at the rear of the caliper you will have 2 or 3 bolts holding the caliper onto the stub axle, remove the bolts and remove the caliper, remove the outer pad, leave the inner pad in place and use a "G" clamp to compress the brake piston until it has bottomed, if this is not done the new pads will not fit back over the rotor as the piston is too far out and the new pads are thicker than the old ones.
place the new pads in the caliper and fit over the rotor, replace the 2 or 3 bolts that hold the caliper in place, replace the road wheel, tighten the nuts and lower the car to the ground, pump the brake pedal to see if you have brakes, if you do have brakes take it for a test drive away from any traffic if possible

I suggest getting a service manual. If you've never done one before, a book will explain a vehicle specific order of operations. Chiltons or Haynes are good. consider it $20 insurance. Good Luck.

SOURCE: mazda bravo blowing white smoke
With regards to the above problem, I have just recently experienced the exact same thing with a 98 Mazda Bravo b2500 (this is a diesel).The symptoms were after driving over some corrugated dirt roads the vehicle would not rev over 2000 rpm and at that point would blow heaps of white smoke and misfire, but would idle beautifully and rev smoothly up to the 2000 rpm. Also noticed when vehicle was cold it would drive good for about 5-10 mins then symptoms would start again.
Fuel filters were changed, sediment trap cleaned,different fuel tried and checked all lines and system for air entry, problem still persisted. While checking injector pump lift pump pressure I noticed that the pressure would drop right off at the 2000 rpm, maybe a lift pump problem?? After consulting the workshop manual I found there is a small stainless steel thimble filter under the injector pump fuel line input union bolt, held in place with a small spring. Pulled this out to have a look and it was full of crud, cleaned it all up and put back together and have a guess what......goes like a brand new truck!!
