Alright, I must be missing something major because I can not see how in the world I can remove the old pads from the rear brakes. It has 2 pins that hold the pads in, but how in the world do I get these pins out???

I may be missing something obvious, but I don't know?????

I think I may have figured it out, or at least I know how now. I will try tonight & update after my success (hopefully)!!

I got it!!

After reading the manual, it says to angle the pads and press gently so the brake pad pin would "pop" out...Yah right, they didn't come out that easy.
I ended up getting a skinny pair of vise grips and gripping the pin, twisting them, & working them out. They both came out fairly easy...I did put penetrating oil on and let it soak about 5 minutes.
Below are some pictures on the pins I removed.

Cool, that's a good idea.
After changing the pads, I could not bleed the brakes. I had to have a local shop use a mighty-vac to bleed them. I tried for 2 hours straight, but still dead. They did them in 15 minutes!! Only charged me $30.

Good luck.
