Some brake pads have a small pin sticking up for the e brake that pad must be on the outside when not installed for the e brake or the caliper will not push it out straight. Remove the pads and check for wear on the caliper face and make sure you have them installed correctly I put a pad in backwards once it worked but made a noise

The piston goes in but the other side of the bracket has sliding pins that are probably frozen in place. Get rebuilt, loaded calipers with the brackets attached and new pads already in place for about $110 each side and the repair is easier. Just did it.

If you have change brakes before - it's the same.
Buy OEM pads.
Take off wheel.
Remove two bolts.
Lift/Take off the brake assembly, be careful to not hang by hose.
Check Rotor for uneven wear - should be smooth.
Depending on driving habits, the rotor may need resurfacing/ replacing - your call.
Note the various clips by lining up the new parts exactly the same as the old one.
The trick to sliding the brake assy back on later as the new pads are thicker, is to move back the part that pushes the pads together. This is a round part and probably made an indent in the old brake pad or shim.
Using a piece of wood adn a C-Clamp, slowly move back the rod. You can use a piece of wood adn brute force if you don't have and C-Clamp.
Be careful not to mar/nick/damage the parts
Replace pad and clips.
Use grease the OEM parts usually provide.
Slide back on brake assembly, replace bolts, note torque.
Turn on and pump brakes.
Drive slow and check work.
The other side should be faster now that you did one side.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls.

check the dust shield that is behind the rotor. It should be attached to the steering knuckle. if it is bent and touching the rotor it will squeak. I would jack the passenger side of the car up and remove the wheel. Once you have done that try to spin the rotor. Try to get it to squeak. It may also be dirt on your brake pads. If it came back after a week it is most likely dirt. Try a couple cans of Braklean while you have it apart.
