Best Answer

Take off the front tire look at the back side of the caliper to see what type of bolts hold the caliper in place get your wrench and remove the two bolts holding the caliper in place. now you may have to pry or hit with a hammer to get it loose then take out the old pads, and use a clamp to push the plunger back in (you may want to open the bleeder valve when doing this to let out the fluid as you push the plunger back in, other wise the fluid will overfil the resovoir above.) put in new pads and reinstall. be sure to pump your brakes before you go anywhere to insure a good pedal feel. If pedal feels spongy you may need to bleed the lines.
