I have found the pressure of the spring plate makes the forward most pin kinda hard to locate while the caliper is off the rotor, and while its on I can't seem to get the pad holes to line up right.

I am sure this will be answered in the video though

Hey Mick,

Here's a portion of that video clip I promised.

Replacing Brembo Pads - 6piston Monobloc

It's incomplete right now, just the video and caption portion without audio.
The audio file will be added soon, but I figured you'd be able to make use of what I have so far since you have already done the swap yourself a couple times.

The key is in the pattern for removing the pins, and how to manage around the spring plate. It's obviously easier on a table vs. on the car, but when I timed myself on the car it only added a minute and a half or so.

This week, I'll shoot a clip of the install on a car, in REAL TIME, no editing. One shot from start to finish.

Hope this helps!
