Its a lot easer than you think each side on the front has four bolts two for the caliper and two for the bracket they both have to come off if you wont to replace the rotors to (its a good idea pads will last longer) the ones on the bracket have rubber things that like to spin grab the metal part with a pair of pliers or channel locks and use a rachet on the other side, then pull the caliper off and pull out the pads. The pads are different so pay attention. When putting this assembly back together you will want to get those floating pins out of there and clean them up real good, as in shiny even if you have to use some steel wool. Then use some good high heat grease, this way your calipers will float nicely without your pads wearing unevenly!
