Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

Do Not remove wheel.............push the pads back and remove the two pins.
Note there is a inner and outer pad on assembly, have a look at the new pads they are different

Often it really takes some effort to get the piston fully retracted, as it must be with new pads.
A really helpful tool is a C-clamp. put the anvil on the outside of the caliper, and put the threaded part into the piston, and see if it looks like it will retract a little further.

Take everything off the rear of the bike so you can gain access to the rear brake caliper. There are two screws that hold the brake caliper into the caliper bracket. Remove the screws. Most newer bikes have Torx head screws. Once you get the screws out, rock the caliper a bit and gently lift it up. Notice the position of the pads and the anti-rattle hardware that is in there. Some bikes have a "spirng" in there as well. Notice how it's all in there and then take it out. Replace the pads and hardware. Make sure you put the rear pad in with the fiber towards the rotor. Don't laugh, I've seen professionals put them in backwards, metal to metal.
Now, you've got to get the piston back into the bore of the caliper. I use either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers. Protect the paint on your caliper by wrapping it with rags or something. Compress the piston until it is all the way down into it's bore. Then, carefully put the caliper back on the bracket, insert bolts and torque them to 18-20 foot pounds.
Slowly pump the rear brake pedal until you get a full pedal. Make sure you test the brakes before you ride the bike. An improperly preformed brake job can cause serious injury or death.

Testimonial: "was very helpful"
SOURCE: How to change the front
Take the two bolts out that hold the front caliper onto the fork slider. Lift the caliper off and take the pads out. You must compress the brake caliper piston back into the caliper body. I usually use a large C-clamp or a large slip joint pliers to compress the piston back into the caliper. Protect the finish on your caliper with rags or thin pieces of wood. Once you get the piston back into the caliper, replace the pads with the new ones making certain that the fiber side of the pad is facing towards the rotor. Put the caliper back into position and reinstall the two bolts. Torque them to 25 foot pounds of torque. Work the front brake lever until you have a full firm brake.
