    4 bolts, one side of caliper comes off and then you can slip the pads out. You lose a lot of fluid because there is a hole where fluid comes to this side of the pistons (2 pistons per side). Just bleed the brakes and add more Dot 4 to the reservoir. Must push the pistons back to insert the new pads
