Exclamation Removing Rear Pads - Help!

Ok... now I do feel stupid. Why can't I pull the floating pins out on rear pads?

They're "loose", and I removed the top clip. What's keeping them in?

EDIT - I found it here......

Ah Grasshoppa, you barely found out about the friction fit of those little rings on the pin shafts, no?

Well why didn't you just come down and help me? I'd like to see you in a saffron robe Master Foe.

It all went well... new rear pads are in. Will do fronts next week. And then.... the dreaded ABSIII 2002 Whizzy brake bleed.... ARGHHHHHHH

It's not that bad. Having a ministan does make it a bit easier....
