Remove wheel, Remove the two bolts holding on the caliper. Pry off, Push back pistons with a c-clamp and a thick board if needed. If you have the metal clips, they can pull out with a needle nose pliers and tap in with hammer. Place new pads in calipers, place of rotor, replace bolts. Bleed system.

Screeching noise from rear wheels. pads have been changed, discs changed, calipers changed, noise still present. it is not always there, more often after I keep the brakes pressed for more than 2 minu

It is possible that the hand brake shoes have no lining left so I would be looking in that area . The noise id probably from that fact that the handbrake has been dragging and now is worn out.

1992 volvo brakes rear brakes started smoking. There was also a burning smell? Any ideas?

rear disc can be activated by bad fluid heating up. If there is moisture in the brake fluid it can make steam and cause the rear brakes to partially engage. did this one myself at the brake shop.

Do i need to change the brake pads and discs???

No you don't, you can have them turn the brake disk/rotor . Turning the brake disk/rotor is when you have the surface of the disk resurfaced by having a brake lath cut the high spots down. The disk are cheap enough now that most will just replace the disk/rotor the same time they replace the brake pads. You can pick up performance drilled or slotted brake disk/rotor for almost the same price as the OEM disk/rotor. Good luck and hope this helps, you can pick up the slotted brake disk/rotor at Auto Zone for a reasonable price and they will have the step by step instruction replacing the disk and if you like to just have the disk/rotor turned, they can do they there too.

Cant remove rear break disc

The reason is that the the emergency brake drums are on the inside of the disc. It will probably take a lot of force or a rubber malet to get it off!

Brake pad change

yes, the process is the same. the ABS sensor isn't physically attached to any of the brake components, so don't sweat it. (please rate my answer)

Brake vibration problem

could be a bad outer tie rod end or lower ball joint on the front suspension, to check jack up wheel (suspension supported) grasp tire and move back and forth, if you feel loosness you have a worn component. if there is no looseness then you have either an bad wheel bearing (excessive runnout) or defective rotors

did you replace All discs front and rear? if not , replace the ones that you previously didnt
