There are pins that hold the pads in the caliper. There are plugs over the ends of the pins on the outside of the caliper and the pins are threaded into the caliper. Remove the plugs and unscrew the pins and the pads should come out.

:waving:I think you mean you have removed the brake caliper. Look at it closely and you will see some plugs in the side of the caliper. Under these are brake pad pins you have to remove and if you are on the front on one side you also have to remove the anti-dive bolt.

Then just pop them out with a flat blade screwdriver.

Up to you how far you need to take it, stone the rotors and or rebuild the calipers, should at the very least clean them up good and clean the leading edge of the caliper pistons well and blow them out with compressed air before compressing them into the caliper to install the new pads, that stops trash from scoring the pistons.

But think you need to take the caliper plugs out/off and remove the pad pins.

Hope this helps.

i may or may not have the information that you need. but heres what i would do---take off the caliper covers ( plastic ) look inside the caliper and see if you have a ridge worn at the out side of the rotor where the pads dont wear . if so , to clear this ridge to remove caliper and pads it will be necceary to compress the pistons back in to the caliper bores a bit. this can be done with a screw driver ( flat bladed ) fitted between the pads and pulled back an forth to drive the pistons back into there bores a little . hope this does not confuse you . you may also need to replace the rotor if it out of specs.
good luck with it too.

d-m hunt a peck .
