A hammer and a drift punch is used to knock out the pins.

U NEED 2 SQUEEZE the END of the pin together woih pliers (needle noise) then tap with a small hammer-make SURE THE the pin IS NOT i 2 pieces-each pin has rubber in the middle with steel bonded 2 the outside-B SURE 2 LUBRICATE Pins with Die lectric grease NOT Petroleum based Lubricants.

You will need a 3/8" Allen wrench to remove the two slider pin anchor bolts at which point the rotors will slide off the brake pads.

Check the bottom of the caliper on your MIA and see if you can locate the pin. Take of the clip and knock the pin out, then the caliper should be able to be moved to remove the pads.

Rear brake pads? To replace the pads, just remove the rear tires. then the brake pads are as easy as, punching the pin out of the caliper, then the brake pads can be removed staight out the rear. You will want to open the brake fluid reservoir first and remove some brake fluid. Then use a special brake depressing tool, or screwdriver to push back the piston on the caliper, do one brake pad at a time. And install in reverse order.
