Changing Brake Pads

Went to change my brake pads and the manual's description sucked as usual so I found this and thought I'd share.

getting the pin out the first time was a mystery, not sure why???

but overall, very easy process, even bleeding the line with a mity vac.

I have never removed the caliper to replace pads. I would loosen the lid to the brake resivoir, tape a rag around it, loosen the pins then slide a putty knife between the pad and the rotor and pryed out. Pull the pins and the pads fall out new pads slip rite in.
