  1. Remove safety spring-clip from the rear of the bolt (on the side of the wheel).
    Just push it out with a flathead screwdriver.

  2. Remove the bolt that goes through the "eye" of the brake pads (using #25 torx driver).

  3. Pull out the pads.
    They just come out when pulled gently by hand towards the rear of the bike.

  4. If there's any debris like paint on the pad material, you may want to sand them flat/clean gently over some 200 grit sandpaper on a flat surface.
  5. Put in new pads.

  6. Screw-in the bolt.

    It maybe good to use some anti-seize paste if not present from the factory.
    Torque value unknown, but be quite gentle - probably something like 10lb/ft (hand-tighten firmly with a regular screwdriver kind of torque).
  7. Reinstall safety clip.
  8. Test your ride carefully!
