I did a search and have been looking at the results for an hour, and found nothing.

Does anyone know what all you have to do to remove the rear caliper to get the pads out? There are two bolts that hold the caliper to the bracket and to the knuckle, but there is also a bunch of other stuff the I can't figure out.

Thanks

Release the ebrake in the car.
Push the ebrake lever on the caliper forward and remove the ebrake cable.
Loosen the bolts you mentioned. You should need a socket and wrench for each one.
The calipers should now be free.
Tap the old pads out.
To get the cylinder to retract you need a tool that fits in the notched in the piston. You then screw the piston in.
Put the new pads on.
reverse above to finish

Did I miss anything?

What is the torque spec for the bolts when re-tightening them?
