First off take off your wheel.
Make sure you have jack stands and not the jack, this can be unsafe... etc. etc.
Once the wheel is off, unbolt that one bolt holding the caliper at the bottom, this will be a metric 12mm.
Once you unbolt it, lift it up carefully and with a C clamp you can push the caliper back so that you have clearance when you put it back on... [ninja edit]Just be sure you lay one of the old pads across the piston, the put the C clamp in place. That way you get even force across the piston and stop from damaging the piston itself with the clamp. ~skierd[/edit]
Take off the old pad with a screw driver or something. Keep in mind not to lose the clips on the pads, since [20:53] cclngthr: they hold the pad secure and prevent it from sliding around.
New pad vs old pad.
Now put back on as you took it off. Watch for on the bottom of the pad facing the outside of the car, there is sort of like a spring thing in the bottom that is a pain to accomodate back on. Hope this works for some of you.

Poor breaks


When you open the breaking system you allow air to enter the break lines and that will cause squishy or weak breaks. You have too "bleed" the air out of the lines now. The way to do this is to have someone help you with this process. They will need to pump the break pedal until the break pedal is stiff and hold pressure on the pedal while you open the valve on the caliper or wheel cylinder(disc or drum) until you have a steady stream of fluid with no air. To ensure you get all the air out you need to start from the passenger rear tire,then driver rear, pass. front, driver front. Make sure you slip one end of a hose over the bleeder valve and the other end in a container so that you don't allow the break fluid to contaminate the new brakes,
