    Look on the back bottom portion of the caliper

    Remove bolt

    Slide clip out and spring out

    Remove caliper

    When you re-install start spring and then slide clip and spring in together

    Very good pics and good explanation, but keep in mind that depending upon the condition of the 60, the clip may not "slide" out. I had to use a BFH and a large chisle to get the clip to move.

    ya mine didnt slide out, but i just gave em a tap with a screwdriver and out they came.
    Im having one hell of a time getting they spring and clip back in. I dont know why i cant get it to fit. I cant even get it to line up.

    heat bolt up with tourch till red and then cool off with cold water. this will shock it loose. sometimes need to do this 2-3 times. works great for bleader screws also.
