On madrussians site it has some pics.. but when I remove the caliper to change the pads, the prong things that hold the pads still stay on the rotor -- but his pics don't show that. How come...<img src="http://members.roadfly.org/m3fella/siglast.jpg">

pads in the caliper piston? Explain further and we will try to help you out. I just redid my fronts so it is pretty fresh in my mind fella.

piston side that is. But not all pads wiil have the prongs, specifically track pads. Thos pads can go in either the inboard or outboard side of the caliper. Place some caliper grease on the pad backing to eliminate/reduce noise.

Here's another DIY:

Is it number 2 that you are talking about or is it number 7?

If it is number 2, than there are two bolts on the back side that you must take out and then that part will come off easy. You must take it off first or you will not have enough room to take the rotor off.

When putting it back on, back sure the metal peice is nice and flush to where you are going to bolt it on. The first time I swapped rotors, I did not make sure of this and ended up breaking one of the bolts in the process.
