    They're a lot like any other brake setup but they have pins to deal with. You'll probably need something to push the pins in with. Other than that, straightforward. See here:

    Remove wheel.

    Look at caliper. There's two bolts holding it down. Loosen one, then the other, then take them both out.

    Slide caliper off.

    Take pads out

    There's a metal backing that goes on the pads. Take that off your old pads. Put on new pads.

    Insert pads.

    The caliper pistons will be extended, how far depends on how worn your old pads were. You gotta push those back in. Don't hurt the pistons. It might take a wee bit of force but you can push them in with your fingers.

    Slide caliper back on.

    Put wheel back on.

    Drive around and break in the brakes. You'll smell a stinky burning smell. That's normal.

    The Brembo units use cotter pins to locate cylindrical rods with holes in them. The caliper does not need to be removed. Once the pins are removed and the pads are "unstuck" it's downhill.
