Sorry for the delay. I logged in this AM and noticed your post, do you still need help with this
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes,since I'm yet to get any help.
BTW,I have seen many Youtube on subject matter but none specific to the calipers on my car. The Haynes repair manual that I have on this model is not much of a help,either.
Expert:  Randall replied 5 years ago.
Are you doing caliper or pads or rotor or maybe all 3?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Trying to replace pads.....trying to open the calipers
Expert:  Randall replied 5 years ago.
got it, I only asked in case you were doing rotors as well as its different procedure. Let me gather what I have and send shortly
Expert:  Randall replied 5 years ago.

Ok, the proper way is to squeeze the piston using a c clamp as shown in the picture. Without one, you can insert a screwdriver down through top of caliper and wedge betwwen a pad and the rotor and pull the driver so the piston goes in a little.


Thenn you go to the top bolt of the caliper #2 in the picture. You remove that bolt/pin and the caliper will swing down and you swap out the pads. the top bolt is uaully a TORX type bolt and the size is T55 on most. You cna get a TORX bit at any local parts store. If it looks like a star? its a TORX bolt, if allen? then its a 3/8th allen wrench to remove the bolt
