Thanks Pdad. I was hoping i would be able to take the cover of the master cyl off drian a little out then use channel locks to squeeze the piston in enough to get the old pad out. Even if that did work, i probably wouldnt have enough play to get new onez in.

How else are you going to get the caliper off? You cant get the rotor off with the caliper on.... And you can't get the caliper off when it'* bolted down.
I'm not changing out the rotors. I did rotors and pads last summer so i shouldnt need rotors again.
