You will have to take the wheel off, then try to use a latge screw driver to pry between the old pads and the rotor to push the old pads back some, this will allow you to remove the caliper easier later. Next get a T-45 socket and remove both the top and bottom bolts from the back of the caliper. Tilt the brake caliper at the top or the bottom (it different for both side), and slide it off. Then you can just remove the pads. Be careful to notice that the shims on the caliper slide are different from top to bottom, don't mix them up. Pull the caliper slide pins out and inspect the boot for hole or cracks and the pins for rust, replace if any of these condition exist. Use some brake silicone grease to lube the slide pins and put a little into each boot and put the slide pins back in. Check the rubber boots on the caliper pistions to make sure they are not leaking any fluid or ripped. Use one of the old brake pads and a C-clamp to push both pistons on one caliper back in until they are flush. Check to make sure that no fluid leaked out of the caliper pistons while they were being pushed back in. If you want to do what is call a pad slap only then you can install that pads at this time but that is not recommended. It is recommened that you measure, check and turn the rotors if at all possible or replace them, the wheel seals and check and repack the wheel bearings.

if you have rear disc brakes all you have to do is take the two bolts off and lift the caliper off and pull the pads out but now if you have drums there is a rubber boot behind the whole drum assembly take it out use a screw driver or a brake tool to back off the tension of the shoes

7 now you can see the caliper sorta top front
8 loo on the inside of the caliper see the rubber looks likee plugs
they are on sone models they are actualy pluged still
9 get out those alan keys unside the ruber sleve there are 2 alan screws righty tighty lefty loosy right? )
completely unscrew the alan bolts lift the caliper off the mount you might need a pry bar but dont be afraid to pry a bit
once caliper removed theres only 1 thing left break pads
remove old ones 1 at a time replace with same use break lube in the sliders not on the pads clean em out if truck is newer it wont take much heck if you want paint the calipers since there off and hanging free any way
NOW DO NOT BE A MORON RUBBER WILL BREAK DO NOT JUST DROP THE CALIPERS AND LET THEM HANG BY THE HOSES THEY WILL STREACH AND WEAKEN THEM AND THEY WILL FAIL UNDER BREAKING...
USE A COAT HANGER BENT LIKE AND S AND HANG THE CALIPERS OFF THE FRAME OR SPRINGS

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.
