Ok, we're going to start by taking the actual bolts out of the caliper's assembly. So what you're going to want to do is some of them you can just take a bolt off, and that satisfies taking this apart, but then some other ones are designed to where they have a locking nut in the back area, in between the caliper and the bracket for the brakes. So you're going to want to disassemble it by locking your one wrench into place, and then just simply taking the bolts out. You want to make sure if it seems that it?s too tight, you might want to add some sort of lubricant to make it easier to remove, but usually once you get a good tug on it, it should come apart. Once you take the bolts out, you have the caliper in your hands.
