Do you mean the clip that holds the pad to the caliper piston? That's riveted on and comes with the new pads.

How do I get to the pads? I can't see how to take off or seperate it from the rotor!

The caliper is held on with two bolts inside rubber sleeves. Usually takes about a T45 torx or 10mm Allen wrench. Be sure to lube those bolts with high-temperature brake grease. Replace them if the chrome plating has lifted or there's any rust pits.
