HOW DO I CHANGE THE FRONT BRAKE PADS?

I'm having trouble figuring out how to get the caliper apart to replace the pads.

To change just the pads you remove the bottom caliper pin which is a 14mm. Then you can flip up the caliper to replace the pads.I would also refinsh the rotors dont just a pad slap. To remove the rotors remove the 18mm bolts holding caliper housing to the knuckle. Also when your done make the brake hoses loop in the hose is facing towards the strut.
