Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Cj, here's my delima. While the info is most useful. One important aspect is missing. HOW DO I GET THE CALIPER SLIDE PINS OFF? I HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING WHAT TYPE OF TOOL TO GRAB. i CAN NOT EVEN GET STARTED TO CHANG OUT MY PADS BECAUSE THE INFO DOES NOT GO INTO DEATIL ON WHAT TO LOOK FOR AND TO "ACTUALLY" REMOVE THE CALIPER TO GET TO THE WORN PADS. PLEASE HELP

Ok, They are going to be a Torx bit (#35 or 40 I think), or a 10mm socket. Get yourself a flashlight and a mirror and look at the pins to determine which ones you have. Thanks for the accept, and let me know how it goes,
