Step 5: Remove Brake Pad Holder

I don't know if this is it's official name but that's what i'm calling it. These bolts were secured by the mechanics using "lock tight" so they are really difficult to get undone.  We used a big ass pipe wrench a large ratchet  a medium wrench  a hammer a big metal lever and the small piece of abs pipe to undo these bolts.I'm sorry that the pictures aren't vary good but it is a small space with a big person and tools in the way.  Anyway if your's aren't secured with "lock tight" it's probably allot easier.
