Front Brake pads on 04 lt

Hi all need advise.Bought new pads for the front of the LT. Ive taken the cover off the calipers,the one with the two small allen screws. Ive pushed the pistons back using the pads. The pin that holds the pads in, how do I remove it. Ive read about using a punch and hammer and tap it out,but there doesnt seem to be a hole on the inside of the caliper where I can push it through,any help appreciated

You should be able to remove the pins that hold the brake pads in with pliers, but you have to remove the locking pins that hold those pins in place first. Wish I had picture for you.

Just remove the small clip that holds the pin in place its towards the front of the caliper and its hard to see rotate the pin and you'll see it

The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.
