needing help replacing front caliper 1985 saab 900

I have a brake caliper that has gone kaput. a seal was forced or gave up after a mere 240000 miles. I am having trouble at my local parts store finding the caliper with the bracket, so I ordered one without. Now I have to remove the old one from the bracket, and I cant seem to figure out how. Any input would be appreciated.

the e-brake lever should be the only thing keeping that caliper from coming loose from the bracket, and that lever is just pressed into the end of the piston. Pry on it gently, or tap it loose with a hammer
On another note: you need a new parts supplier. In 30+ years of repairing Saabs I've never even heard of not being able to buy a complete caliper for a 900
