    Rear Brake Pads

    Just remove the rear wheel; release the retaining pin and then remove the rear brake pads from the caliper. It's a simple, five minute job.

    Getting the rear wheel on and off with the rear brake caliper can be a pain in the arse and fiddly so I recommend take your time. Also, if you happen to have a piece of 2x4 or decking board around it's useful to put it under the rear wheel to hold the weight before you do take the wheel off, and it makes getting the wheel back on much easier as lining up the axle hole with the adjusters less hassle. Then changing the pads is easy to do, it's all described in the manual and in the service DVD. Just remember to make sure you have prised the old pads apart sufficiently before you swap the pads so you don't damage the caliper or the new pads when you find you haven't done it first lol.

    Its on a slider, comes straight out. But you have to release the brake hose from the hugger.

    My 17 seems to have the shortest brake line in history making it far harder than it needs to be.
