Ok take off front wheels. Then remove the 2 bolts in the caliper. Thenremove the caliper from the rotor. Then remove the pad from the caliper. Then take off the brake reservoir cap that way the fluid will make its way back to the reservor, make sure you keep it off until the end of the job. Now get a c clamp and compree the piston bacl into the caliper. then replace the pads. Then put the reservor cap back on. Then pump your breaks until they get hard.
