Jack up the front of the car and support on jackstands and remove the front wheels. Remove some brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir. The calipers are mounted on brackets which have two bolts attaching them to the steering knuckles. Remove the two small bolts attaching the calipers to the brackets and support them with wire, then remove the brackets. Remove two retaining screws from each rotor and remove the rotors. The retaining screws may require an impact type screwdriver to remove them and if the rotors are stuck they can be removed by threading two 10 mm bolts into threaded holes in the rotors. The rotors should be machined or replaced. Reverse to reassemble. After the caliper mounting brackets are in place install the pads on them and press the piston in on the caliper with a c-clamp and install it over them. The caliper bracket bolts are tight (I believe 80 ft lbs) but the small bolts holding on the calipers are ~20 ft lbs I think. Pump the brake pedal several times to seat the pads.

More than likely you have warped rotors. Have the rotors and brakes inspected. If the rotors are not too bad and have not been turned before they can be turned and trued and used again. You will also need new brake pads.
