Front pads.

Back after years away with 10 added to my name. Trying to replace pads but must be old and senile. Can't get inner larger pad with holes out of caliper to replace. Do the posts compress more than I think? Even easy is hard anymore. Thanks

Just did mine a couple of weeks ago, and yes, the inner pad is a pain in the ass to get out. I find on mine the slider doesn't stay all the way in on it's own, I have to squeeze the hell out of it with one hand while angling the inner pad out with the other. Once you do it, it seems easy, but figuring out the first one took a while to get it right.
