1. Jack the vehicle up high enough that the tires can be removed for the axle you are working on and secure with jack stands
2. Remove the wheels and get them out of the way
3. Using the 12mm socket wrench, remove the two caliper bolts:
Top, looking down:
Bottom: looking up:
They are a bit funny -- they never feel completely loose because of a rubber grommit. You may have to wiggle the bolt, or pry on it with your thumb to get the bolt out
4. Pry the caliper out of its receiver:
You may have to pull from both the top then the bottom and wiggle it loose. It will be tight and may work better from the top OR the bottom.
5. Lay the caliper on the spring (or just out of the way)
6. Grab the front pad by the outside tab and work it out of the receiver:
7. Paying attention to the tab on the pads:
insert the new pads (tab towards the ground) by putting the tab side in first and working the pad into the upper receiver:
repeat for the back side pad:
