Okay, maybe I'm a bit thick. This is my first time replacing pads on a BB7. How do I remove the things?

All the instructions I can find say to simply turn the inboard adjuster all the way counter clockwise, then pinch the pads together and pull them out. Simple.

NO! Do I need to have bionic fingers and arms to do this? Pliers keep slipping off. How the hell do I remove the damn things?

Turn both pad adjusters to max opening and they should come out without too much effort, if the pads are brand new it might be a little work. Sometimes it's easier to get one out first rather than both together.

I find it easier to do one at a time. get a grip on it, pull, and wiggle it out.
