I suck at explaining but it's extremely simple. I have a track day this coming weekend so I'll take pics or make a quick video clip when I swap pads.

As for the tool TC Kline posted: I have one I use on small calipers. I'm 99% sure it wouldn't work on the M3's large front calipers.

Yeah, I just got ordered RS19's and got my Loctite Copper anti-seeze... I think maybe manual method will work once I get it all ready.. I'm sure I can figure it out.. If you do get the pics or method at the track, let me know quickest efficient way and I'll replicate that.
