Yep, pull the pin an pop them out... HOWEVER, you will need to push the caliper pistons back in order to put the new (thicker) pads in. Of course BMW has a specical tool for this, but I suggest you carefully insert a large flat piece of metal, like a screwdriver, and pry them back. If no success, then remove the calipers and use a C-clamp or ? YMMV.
BTW, at my 24k I had worn about .017" off of my front pads, so I did not replace them just took 'em out, inspected them and put 'em back in. My back pads were somewhat glazed so I replaced them even though they were only about 1/3 worn.
