    How do you remove the rear brake caliper from the bracket?  Had the wheel and the caliper and bracket are attached I'm obviously missing something how to you take them apart I can see and bolts holding them together  :084:

    The caliper is not fixed to the bracket - it's a "sliding caliper".  It slides on two pins, which are covered by what looks like a pair of rubber bellows.  One on the top, one at the bottom.
    One pin is on the bracket, one on the caliper.  Just pull the bracket and caliper apart.

    From the Haynes manual - just about clear enough!
