Not as hard as it looks,the caliper has 2 guide pins that are held in place by a wire

spring.The guides go thru the brake pades and I noticed that you do not have to remove

the caliper.NOTE: this vehicle that I worked on had home made coter pins thru the

guide pins , so I am not sure what the original hardware looks like. Remove the cotter

pin from guide pins then pull them straight out . Clean them with a wire brush then

apply a thin coat of antisies the metal to metal kilnd (silver in color). Remove your

brake pads and replace in the revese order. I recommend that you have the rotors
