I know how to replace the pads, as i already did that twice. But i want to remove the caliper from the bracket so i can clean it well, not just blow it out. I read that pushing the pistons back in will ruin the seals after a few times, so i want to get in there and clean them to get any dust and other crap thats stuck on off them. The caliper as i said is sold as a unit with no replaceable parts sold, (aside from a few things like the pin, spring etc) so if the seals go I'm out close to $600 with tax, and i already pushed them back in twice w/o a good cleaning. So i need to know how to remove the caliper from the big black aluminum mounting bracket that the axl goes thru.
