theres only two bolts that hold the calipers on. Just take em out and it's pretty easy to figure out. I'd use a little lock tite on the bolts if you got it and torque them to spec when re installing.

Do you need to pull the calipers off on the 600? Really doesn't take much to pull a caliper, but for the weary should be able to remove the anti-noise clip, guide pin, compress the calipers and install new pads...

Recommend keeping someone around to check fluid level after doing the work and just to have a second pair of eyes incase something is overlooked. No fear in safety when it comes to this stuff... especially on brakes...
