    If your talking about the Front brake pads, You gotta remove the anti-rattle spring with a screw driver then there are two 7mm hex bolts behind the black rubber cap for the caliper. To remove the front caliper itself from the caliper holder there is two 15mm bolts closer to the CV Axle; this is usually only for the replacement of the disc rotor. Remember to add some red loc-tite to the two 15mm bolts after removal. Good luck, -Sam
