How do I remove the calipers off my W115??

Hi everyone, I'm trying to get my right rear caliper off of my w115 200 and I need some tips on how to tackle this job. I have the ATE calipers, they seem to have some sort of locking plate that is bent on the bolts that hold it to the bracket. I tried bending it to get my socket in there but wasn't successful. Any tips on how to bend that plate and get my calipers out of the car? And also if you know how to plug that brake fluid line would be awesome, as it connects directly to the caliper no ruber hose. Any tips are welcome .

I use the flat blade of a screwdriver and gently tap the locking tab away with a hammer so you can get a socket on. I would probably loosen the brake line before you do anything it will make it easier when you remove the caliper. As far as plugging it you could use a zip lock bag and a rubber band.

an awl can also be used to get between the tab and the bracket to bend it away from the bolt.

go a head and let all the fluid drain out, you will need to flush and bleed the system anyway.
