First off properly jack up your front end and secure it. Take off the wheel and there are 2 long screws holding your brake caliber in ,that you need to remove(NOTE-remember which bolt goes where) after that caliber should come right off and just remove old pads and put new ones in. Why you are here inspect your rotors if it looks worn I would probably just get new ones since it would be a pain to take them to a shop to get them ground (refaced or "turned"). But just do reverse of what you did to put it back on. As for what brake pads I would go for semi-metallic better and longer lasting.

Ceramic pads are quieter and less brake dust.
