Hey Joshua===Remove the front wheels then take out the two pins that hold the calipers which requires a 3/8 Allen wrench. Then pry the piston in some to be able to remove if off of the rotor. remove the caliper from the rotor and hang it with a coat hanger so it doesn't hang by the hose. Take the pads out and with a "C" clamp push the piston completely in the caliper. Install the new pads using the grease or shims included with them. and simply put it back together. Don't forget to pump up the brakes when you get ready to move it as you will have NO brakes until you do. GoodluckJoe

On my 2000 I had bolts, 12mm and 13mm. Once they are removed the whole assy came out. Watch which pad is in which way, the pad with the sqweeler tab goes to the inside. Clean everything and let dry before installing new parts. I put in top of the line parts for about $170.

The 2003 Chevy Malibu does not have a timing belt. It has a chain which should last the life of the engine.
