Replacing disk brake pads on 98 E320

I typically keep my MB for years and do most of my own repairs. However, I can't seemt to remove the caliper pins from the unit to remove the pads. Does anyone know the correct tool to remove the pins?

That's a fairly nice DIY, But! I personally would not compress the piston as suggested in the DIY, reason is that you may flush all the junk in the caliper into the ABS (possibly) . Rather than that, first open bleeder, then compress piston, when completely compressed,close bleeder, then you can follow the DIY and not risk screwing up a expensive ABS computer, and as long as, your going thru all of that , consider flushing system(if you haven't already) I use Ate SL.6 ( Dot 4 class6), don't use silicone on ABS . If you screw up the pins, rockauto has them . Good luck
