Default brakes

If the inner pad is worn more than the outer, the piston is sticking. Lube around the and under the rubber with brake fluid.
If both pads are wearing more so than the other wheels, the caliper slides are bound. Follow the advice on the previous post.
My calipers had 3/8 allen sockets on the 96 and torx on the 90.
