when its off give it a good clean.

remove bolt that attaches disc, then remove disc, you can tap it off with a hammer if you are fitting new ones.

Put copper grease on all bits of pads that contact the calliper and carrier
forgot to take photos of that bit, fit rear pad to calliper piston and front pad to carrier.
use new calliper bolts or clean the treads of the old ones and apply thread lock.
