Default Break Calipers.!?!?!?

Hello. I have a 06 jackpot. I am going to change the break pads. There are some rubber "inserts"(I guess that is what you would call it) where bolts should be to remove the calipers to change the pads. Is there a special way to remove those rubber inserts not to damage them?

Any and all advice is welcome.

Thank you ahead of time.

I just did mine. Remove clips on front, pull pins, push pistons in, remove pads, file edges on new, replace. 15 minutes tops. Rear remove clip, push pistons on with old pads still in, center punch pin, remove pads, replace pads, line up pin, pop back in with long screwdriver, replace clip

Blame it on me

DO NOT mess with the rubber plugs.

Do a search here and find a manual to down load.

Where is that easy button? Thank you for letting me know. Sure was not hard at all. The two hardest things were trying to relieve the pressure on the caliper. Which I should have known better. Had a brain fart. I said to myself "I'm a big dumb idiot". And second. Trying to get that cotter pin put back into the rod. I think it was twisted a little. But it is good to go. Thank you again.
