when you take the tire off make sure the car is properly sitting on a car stand.. cut your steering wheel so you can see what your doing.. there should be two long bolts that you can see that go threw one side of the capilar to the other it should be a hex bolt or allan bolt. most of th time you have to go buy the wrench from the dealer. after you take those out you'll see a little thing that looks like the inflater for a bicycle tire.. you need to open that up a little. that's were your brake fluid will come out of.. now with a tire iron stick it between the two calipars and push them apart with a steady motion once you have got them apart close that little ***. then pull the whole thing off the wheel. you can put your new pads of then. good--luck ray

You can sometime just pull it off but sometimes you will need to take a screwdriver and push the brake pad back on the caliber piston side. This will force the piston back and allow you to remove the caliber. After you remove it you will need to compress the caliber piston fully back in order to allow room the install the new pads and get them back on the rotor. Sometimes you can fully compress it while the caliber is still installed. On some vehicles like Honda you need a special tool in order to compress the caliber. Most auto parts stores will lend you the tool if you buy the pads from them. Be sure and loosen the master cylinder fill cap to allow the brake fluid to expand in the master cylinder. Clean everything off with spray brake cleaner before installing the new pads and clean the new pads throughly. Be sure and install pads in pairs. Do both front wheels or both back wheels not just one.
