Question about Garden
Look on the right hand side of the transaxle, behind the front side of the rear wheel and locate the brake arm with a long rod sticking through the top of it. Note there is a 1/2" nut in the center of the arm near the bottom.
Before you start to replace the pads, try adjusting that nut. Put the tractor in neutral on flat level surface, engine off and turn the nut in while rolling the tractor back and forth with one hand, when you can no longer move the tractor STOP and unscrew the nut 1/2 turn. Now check your brakes.
If you still don't have brakes then you go back to that same nut and remove it completely, pull the arm out of your way and you will see a round disc about 3" in diameter beneath a "yoke" There will be 2 bolts 3/*8" head in the yoke, remove those and the brake pads will be right there, one in the yoke and one behind the disc.
Hope this all makes sense to you, if not, let me know and I will try to sort it out further
