To change the pads on your bike, look at the caliper and you'll see two bolts that hold it into the caliper bracket. Remove these two bolts. Rock the caliper in towards the wheel and back out a few times to loosen everything up and carefully remove the caliper from the bracket without disturning the pads or the anti-rattle hardware.
Take special note of how the anti-rattle hardware is positioned in the caliper bracket. Now, replace the pads and hardware with new parts. Make sure you install the inside pad with the fiber side towards the rotor. Don't laugh, you'd be surprised at how many I've seen installed backwards.
Now, next you must get the piston pressed back into it's bore. I use either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers to press the piston back into it's bore. Use rags or thin pieces of wood to protect the finish on your caliper. Once you get the piston all the way back down in the bore, carefully slide it back down over the pads without disturbing them. Replace the two screws and torque them to 35-40 foot pounds.
Slowly depress the rear brake pedal until you get a nice firm brake pedal. Make sure you test the brakes before you ride the bike at any high speeds. Failure to test the brakes for proper operation can cause severe injury or death.

There is an exploded view drawing here. Take a look at it and see if you can determine which is the spacer and where it goes. I hope it helps.
