Remove the tire. Use a C clamp to wider the caliper gap a bit to remove it from the rotor, and to allow room for the newer (thicker) pads. Unbolt and support the caliper (NEVER let the caliper hang by the brake hose), it's fairly straight forward from there. Try to replace the springs that hold them in place, instead of reusing them.
