Step one; Get a shop manual. If you want to do your own work, it's invaluable.

Step two; See step one for instructions.

Be sure to clean the calipers with brake cleaner, check the pistons for corrosion and grease the slider pins and the backs of the new pads with brake grease upon reassembly.

Im not familiar with your bike, but every bike I own, the pins have an allen head bolt to remove them. They just don't slide out, but the shouldn't be in there excessively tight either

I downloaded a manual for your bike to get a better idea. What exactly model is your? N1 N2 P1 P2. Some of them have different brake setups. If you pm or post your email i can send you the manual. Spray some penetrative such as liquid wrench on the pin. If you can get to the back side of the pin, u can tap it out with a punch or a long bolt. Or since you will shortly have the manual, maybe Masta can tell you since he probably has the same bike. The generic pictures in the manual arent real useful.
