Default Trail Blazer 250 brake problems

Hello,
I just bought my first four wheeler, a '98 Polaris Trail Blazer 250. The rear brake is not working. I discovered that it just needs new brake pads. I just don't know how to get them off. There are two small bars that hold the brake pads on the caliper. Could someone tell me how to remove the pads? Also, how do you tighten the chain on this bike.

Thanks,
Roger

Are the brakes on the '98 up on the transmission output shaft?

Yes, the rear brake on the '98 Trail Blazer is on the transmission output shaft. I think Polaris changed it in '99.

Thanks for the diagram. You can see that number 4 is the part I was talking about. I still don't know how to get them out. I tried pounding the dowels inward but they only gave a little and it doesn't seem like that is the right way to do it.

Thanks for your help.

Do you have to pull the caliper off to get the caliper apart? I have not messed with one of those. I wish I could be more help.

Okay, I figured it out. The dowels are supposed to slide out once the caliper is removed. It's pretty easy after all. Mine didn't want to slide out because they had a little grime on them from getting dirty over the years. Thanks for your help.
