Remove wheel. Using 15mm socket and ratchet handle, remove bolts on Caliper. Open cap on brake fluid reservoir. Carefully push piston back into caliper to clear worn pads, then remove. Do NOT let caliper hang or dangle. Using one of old pads, push piston fully into caliper with clamp. Pads slide in and out. Inspect rotor for scoring or other wear. Reverse to assemble. Clean as you go.

Take the car to a shop that does brakes. These newer cars are a lot trickier than those of the bygone era, and it is too easy to get yourself into expensive trouble.
