    Read Pad Removal on Eldorado

    I searched this forum and didn't find an answer, so pardon me if I just missed it.

    I have a 97 Eldoradoand am trying to replace the rear pads. The 2 caliper bolts appear to have a rounded or capped type of head that requires a special tool (surprise, surprise). Is this right or am I off base in assuming this will be similar to the front brake replacement method?

    Can someone tell me how to do this without screwing things up?

    Just remove the bottom bolt and pivot the caliper up.
