Hello and welcome to Just, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

DId you plan to replace the rotors, or just the pads?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
i would like to resurface the rotors or turn them, and replace the pads on the fronts only please
Expert:  Jerry replied 8 years ago.
Let me give you the instructions for that. When you take the pads out, you will then want to take out the bolts for the torque member and the rotor will pop off with the help of a few taps with a hammer.

I am having problems with uploading the pictures at this time.

Removal and Installation of Brake Pad

  1. Remove tires from vehicle with power tool.
  2. Remove lower sliding pin bolt.

Hang cylinder body with a wire, and remove pads, pad retainers, shims from torque member.

  1. Apply PBC (Poly Butyl Cuprysil) or equivalent to the both sides of inner shim and outer shim, install inner shim to inner pad, and outer shim and outer shim cover to outer pad.
  2. Apply PBC (Poly Butyl Cuprysil) or equivalent to pad contact surface on pad retainer, and install pad retainers and pads to torque member. CAUTION: Inner pad and outer pad have pad-return mechanism on upper side of pad retainer. When installing pad to torque member, be sure to install pad return lever to pad wear sensor securely.
  3. Install cylinder body to torque member. CAUTION: When replacing pads with new ones, press in piston until pads can be installed. In this case, carefully monitor brake fluid level in reservoir tank because brake fluid will return to master cylinder reservoir tank.
  4. Install lower sliding pin bolt, and tighten it to the specified torque. Refer to BR-19, Components.
  5. Secure disc rotor with wheel nuts. Depress brake pedal a few times until it gets a responsive touch.
  6. Check brake for drag.
  7. Install tires to vehicle.
