Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.

There should be an adjuster next to the handbrake lever. You may have to remove some trim to see it but it is in the general area of the lever.

1. Chock your wheels
2. Loosen the wheel nuts on the wheel that you're interested in (not too much - just crack the pressure)
3. Jack the wheel up, remove the wheel nuts and the wheel.
4. At this point you have sufficient room to inspect your brake pads and the cable connection.
5. If you require further access to change pads etc, you may remove the lower LOCK bolt - this will allow you to swing the caliper up and access the pads etc. Be careful not to press on the brake when you're carrying this step out - it might seem like a good idea to check if the piston moves freely, but you'll regret it when you pop the piston clear from the well and have to try to get it and the diaphragm back into place (almost impossible - save yourself the time, effort and headache and get a replacement from the local wreckers!)
6. If you need to replace the entire caliper - you just need to remove the remaining swing bolt - ensure you cover the brake fluid hose to prevent it from getting dirty when you are replacing the caliper. Do not touch the master cylinder or you will have to bleed the ENTIRE brake system rather than just the one line.
7. If you've disconnect the brake fluid line, you WILL also need to bleed the air from that line before you can drive again. Attach a clear piece of PVC tube to the little nipple on the caliper, loosen the nipple slightly to allow it to flow fluid and air through and drop the other end of the PVC into a container. Have an assistance pump the brakes slowly and thoroughly for you whilst you watch the tube for air. Once you are completely certain no more air bubbles are being squeezed out of the system. As you follow this procedure monitor the level of the brake fluid reservoir under the bonnet (LHS from memory) and top it up as required.
Incidentally, you can check the handbrake connection by simply jacking the car up and wriggling under for a look...
Hope this helps, Sherwin

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the center console covering the parking brake lever. Locate the parking brake lever between the drivers seat and the front passenger seat. Put the parking brake lever in the lowest position.
Turn the cable adjuster locknut to make the nut loose. Find the nut at the base of the parking brake lever.
Raise your GT rear wheels using a jack and support the rear wheels using jack stands. Remove both rear wheels using a tire iron to loosen and take off the lug nuts. Take off the tire from the rods by hand.
Get underneath the car and remove the rubber hole plugs from the brake rotors. Locate the rotors on the underneath inside of the wheel wells.
Take off the brake calipers with a screwdriver, but do not disconnect the brake fluid lines.
Use a pry bar to push up on the parking brake self adjuster wheel. Locate this next to the brake caliper and it looks like a star wheel. Rotate this wheel until the rotors will not turn.
Turn the adjuster wheel five notches in the opposite direction. Reinstall the calipers and wheels. Lower your GT using the jack and remove the jack stands from the rear wheels.
