After getting the tire off. There sould be only two bolts that hold on the brake caliper. They could be a special bolt on some years. It could be star bolts that need to have star bits to take em off. Autozone has them for around 6 bucks a set. T20 T30 T40 T50 etc.

I just changed the front brake pads on my 2003 Cavalier and the bolds were not the star bits but a 3/8" hex bit.

2001 Cavalier is also 3/8 hex. You'll need a socket type would take forever using an Allen wrench. Also make sure you use a pry bar or screwdriver to push back the brake caliper before removing the bolts...much easier that way.
