    Hi welcome to the forum,

    best be is caliper off then you can get at the pads, have you undone the hand brake cable? that will help if you havent! if changing disc's as well, then carrier off disc off then fit in reverse.

    do you have a caliper rewind tool? pain in the arse if you dont and you probaby wont wind them back in without!
