Remove the tire, remove the cailiper mounting bolts. With a "C" clamp push the pisotn back in the the caliper. When you push the piston back, crack the bleeder valve to let the pressure out while compressing. Before you release the "C" clamp, tighten the bleeder valve. Re-install in reverse of removal.

remove caliper, push disc all way home, put wheel nut on to hold home, retry fitting them the disc may be slightly scued. If no go try diffrent brand of pad I had same prob with a diffrent car last week & diffrent brand pad was 2mm thiner. If can't exchange pads get piece of emery paper on flat surface & sand away top part of pad material in round motions both ways till they fit. :-)
Brake discs with pads need to be changed both sides on the same axle. Slacken the lug nuts and then lift the corner of the car and remove the wheel. Put a screwdriver tip between the brake pad and the disc and twist until a couple of millimeters of gap has opened up, do this front and back of the disc. Now remove the two large caliper securing bolts and lift the caliper up. locate the caliper body so that its weight does not pull on the rubber brake hose ( piece of wire to hold it temporarily to the strut spring is good). The disc is located by a couple of small screws. Remove these and the disc will come off the wheel studs. Fit the new disc and reinstate by reversing the steps above. Note if you have pushed the pads back far enough when removing the calipers then the caliper should refit easily over the unworn and therefore fatter new disc even with new pads fitted. put a small dab of anti-seaze grease (CopperEaze or similar) on the back of each pad as this will prevent squeal. Tighten the caliper bolts thoroughly when reassembling. Remember to pump the brake peddle back to pressure to re-seat the new pads to discs before test driving. Now do the same to the other side. If you are new to this the fist wheel is a voyage of discovery and the second wheel will take a quarter of the time.
Hi, Brake Padsare an important part of your Mazda6's braking system. They are the replaceable friction pads that pinch the brake disc or drum when the brakes are applied. You should replace the brake pads before they wear beyond a quarter inch or risk damaging your Mazda6's brake discs. Instructions Remove the old Brake Pads
Step 1 Park your car on a level surface. If you have a stick shift car, make sure the car is in gear. Do not set the parking brake. Place blocks in front of the front tires so the car does not move while you are working on it.
Step 2 Open the hood of your car. Locate the master cylinder and brake fluid container. If necessary, remove brake fluid until the level in the container is less than half full. A turkey baster is a good tool for this. Put the brake fluid in the plastic container and dispose of it the way you dispose of motor oil.
Step 3 Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly.
Step 4 Disconnect the parking brake cable from the brake caliper. The cable is usually held in place with a retaining clip. You can use pliers to remove the clip and disconnect the cable.
Step 5 Remove the upper caliper bolt. Rotate the caliper downward until you can comfortably work on it. Remove the springs, pads and shims from the caliper.
Install the new Brake Pads
Step 1 Use the recommended tool to press the caliper piston back into the piston assembly.
Step 2 Insert the shims, springs and new pads into the caliper. Reconnect the parking brake cable.
Step 3 Rotate the caliper upward and back into place. Use the socket wrench to tighten the upper mounting bolt to 27 to 36 foot lb. (37 to 49 Nm) if you have a Mazda6 or to 16 to 23 foot lb. (21 to 31 Nm) if you have a Mazdaspeed6.
Step 4 Replace the tire wheel assembly. Lower the car to the ground.
Step 5 Add fluid to the master cylinder container to replace any you removed before you removed the old brake pads.
Step 6 Season the brake pads by making only gentle stops when you are driving for the first week after you install the new brake pads. Try not to do any hard stopping when you are seasoning the brakes.
Visit the autozone.com website and register the car information. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual for the car. The steps for replacing the brake pads should be available there. It's a handy resource. Hope this helped and best wishes.
The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

A couple of things to check. This is only if you replaced the front pads, after the warning light came on. 1. Make sure brake fluid is level and at the max mark 2. Did you replace the front pads sensors with the new pads.If not please do. 3. Check that the rear pads and sensors are not worn and do not require replacing. 4. If all above is good, Drive vehicle for about 5klm and switch off and on it will reset itself
