Diagram is unnecessry.
Pull both front wheels
Work one at a time leaving the other for reference
Find the retention spring ... its a paperclip thickness wire spring... dislodge center retention loop and undo from both ends which engage brake pad retention rods.
Pull the rods out
Pull the old pads out... laying everything on the ground
Use scrap wooden wedges to pry between the rotor and the caliper ...inside and out until the calipers are fully withdrawn. Use the new pads to measure if they are far enough back.
Note... the brake fluid will have dropped in the master cylinder over many months of wear... do not fill it. When the calipers are pushed back they will fill the reservoir again... one wheel at a time.
Be sure to identify the correct pad based on what you took out and what is on the other side (if you screwed up the layout)
Make sure to take the old antisqueek backing plate from the old pad and place it on the new pad. They don't use lubricant on these anymore.
Replace the pads... the retention rods... then the retention spring
Do the other side
Then progressively step on the brake peddle until full tension is felt
Check the master cylinder reservoir... probably needs no additional fluid.
New pads will register in existing ridges in each disc in no time at all.
You should check the discs to see if they need to be replaced during this operation...using some calipers

SOURCE: Replace front brake pads
1. Loosen lugs to wheel with wheel on the ground. Remove AFTER jacking the wheel into the air.
2. 2 bolts hold brake caliper to the suspension. Located on the inboard side of caliper. Usually is a regular hex bolt or an allen head. You may need to persuade them loose at first with a hammer or extra leverage.
3. caliper can be lifted off rotor exposing the pads. Be sure to note how the pads look in place so you can replace the new ones in the correct spot.
4. Depress the caliper piston completely back into cylinder with large channel lock pliers. be careful not to scar in any way.
4. put small amount of lube grease on bolt when reinstalling.
Good luck.. say a prayer and go for it.

SOURCE: how do I change front brake pads
You will first need to have a car jack, proceed to jack up the front side of the car you want to work on. Make sure you place the jack on the proper location, refer to instruction in manual. Take off your tire, now the whole brake assembly is visible, there will be two bolts on back of the brake unit. One at the top and one at the bottom. Unscrew both of these and proceed to slide the used pads and the unit you've just unscrewed. Make sure you clean off all dirt, rust and break pad rosedew. Now you'll need a C-clamp, The piece with the rubber protector on it needs to be compressed back into its compartment with the use of your C-clamp. Now that the unit is clean and the compressor is back in the chamber it's time to replace the small steel break sliders with the new ones provided with your new break set, slide your new breaks into those slots, beside the router. Your almost finished, just slide the break compressor back over the breaks and bolt the unit back on, make sure you tighten the bolts well , as these are your breaks and they will save your life. The only thing to do now is clean your tire inside and out while its off and put it back on your car. Have fun and don't worry it's easy.

(10) Install master cylinder fluid reservoir cap.
Hope this helps...I know it's extremely difficult to find manuals for these cars. These instructions are straight out of the factory service manual.
