Take tire off. Loosen two stud bolts on back of caliper...top and bottom. Remove caliper. Remove old brake pads. Install new pads. Remove cap on Master Cylinder reservoir and push the cylinder back in. I use a C-clamp to do this. Re-install caliper and tighten the two bolts. Re-install tire. Refill Cylinder with new fluid and replace cap.

You should always check to see if there are any grooves worn in the rotors or drums when replacing brake pads. If there are signs of wear, have the rotors or drums turned to smooth them out for better braking and longer pad life. If you do not do this, the new pad will wear faster because the high spots of the grooves in the rotors will wear down the pads until they match the grooves in the rotors. They will wear pretty normally after that, but you will have lost some life off the pads at the beginning.
