Default Polaris front brake change ??????

Changing front brakes on a 1998 Polaris scrambler 400 4x4 and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to get the new pads on. I can’t believe I got the old ones off. It’s like doing a freakin rubix cube. Any help will be appreciated.
THANKS IN ADVANCE…….

Never mind, I found the little set screw in the back of the caliber. A 15 min. job ended up taking an hour and a half……..

You have to remove the small 3/16" allen screw on the caliper to be able to push the caliper bracket far enough back to remove pads and replace pads easier! After pads are removed,just pull caliper bracket off and grease caliper pins,push back on, place pad on lower caliper bracket and can use a screw driver if necessary to pry on upper pad while pushing bracket back(Allen screw removal allows bracket to move back further on top bracket pin). After caliper is mounted back on,pump the brake up, replace the allen screw and turn rotor while tightening screw in until you feel a drag on the rotor,then back off 1/4-3/8 turn on screw.
this aligns the rotor to the caliper. Hope this helps. OPT
