Well, finally at 35K. I have the pads, and dismounted the left caliper, but cant figure how to get the bigger (inside) pad out. The one with the two holes that track on the two stems. The trusty Service Manual says "push the caliper holder to the piston side, and then remove the pads." Well, the small one next to the piston lifts out easily, but the other is prevented by the two stems.

I think I'm just missing something simple. Should the stems move in the housing? Is there a simple pushback procedure?

All is back to OK but it's gnawing. Help appreciated as in times past.

Thanks, VN750. for the assistances. Those plus a couple of comments from other sources got the job done today: "the caliper holder without the rubber friction boot moves easier"; and the "end of a 1/4" short extension with a socket on it to push that one in far enuff (sic.)." Also recommend a flat screwdriver for various wedging needs, and teflon spray. Where did they come up with that non-trivial, non-Manualed design? Again, many thanks.
