If you have the # 30 style on the left:

They snap out, do you have the new pads and see the backing? The side on the piston have those 3 metal finger springs, and the other side just slides in.

You will also probably have a large metal caliper spring holding them in. Pry that out on both ends with a screw driver, but get it back in correctly.

If you have the # 30 style on the right, you will need pin punches to punch the pins out, it would be a good idea to buy a new hardware kit because these get brittle and rusty easy.

It's really easy depending on what year your car is. On my 2000 the caliper come all the way off so you could then remove the pads. You will need to compress the piston back into place to put on the new pads. Some model has a Pin which I think holds in the pads, but I am not sure what year has that. Overall they should be really easy to do.
