Removing Brake Caliper

I went to change my girlfriends brake pads on her 2008 and was wondering if anyone knew how to remove the calipers. When i went to remove the 2 bolts from behind the calipers it looks like there is a nut on the bolt in the middle. I thought id check her before i attempt to remove it. The problem i am having is that there isnt enough room to get a wrench on the nut. Do i need a slimmer wrench or is there something im missing?

Thanks Mike

There should just be 2 bolts holding the caliper to the knuckle and another in the middle that holds the brake line to the caliper but dont remove the middle unless you plan on cleaning up brake fluid

Wish i took a picture and i guess i didnt describe it very well. It looks like the bolts screw the calipers into the caliper pins. But i am unable to get a wrench (too thick) on the end of the pins to back off the bolts.

not sure if the parts link works
