    Sorry for the stupid question, just wanna make sure I’m doing this right. Searched around and didn’t find a post spelling it out but looks like I remove the top cover, depress the spring and pull the pins out? Is this right? The pins don’t have a lot of purchase area to grab with my hands so thinking I should use a pair of pliers.

    Let me know if I’m on the right path.

    Thanks guys!

    It is fairly simple.. follow your nose. Depress spring end around clamp IIRC.. think I used a screw driver. RTFM if your not certain.

    The pins have captured circlips on them. Tap one out until it's free, remove the spring and center pin, the tap the other long pin free. Reass'y with a small amount of anti-seize.

    The tapered end is the one you tap on. It's on the inboard side of the caliper.

    Got it fellas. These circlips you speak of; must they be removed before tapping? And where are they on the pins?

    You don't have to take the circlip off. It just ensures the pin clicks into the right position when you tap it back in.

    You can see them on the pins in this pic.

    I just give them one light tap with a long rod from the rear of the caliper, then you can get pliers onto them while holding the spring clip down.
