break caliper

i have a sinnis apache 125 and i need to replace the pads on the rear, problem is theres these stupid rubber boots things that cover the nut. i managed to get one off cos that had a nipple thing on the end so could pull it straight off, problem is the second, the thing is flat so cant pull it off and the rubber thing covers the nut so cant exactly remove the nut on that unless i cut the thing apart which i dont want to do, so does anyone actually know how to remove this thing

the one i can remove its basically a long pin with a thered end and a smoothe end which holds the caliper in place

you sure

these should be removed? most bike calipers are removed by loosening and removing 2 large bolts then undo the one that long pin is removed to remove your pads , do you have a manual to see exactly what u should remove in what order if not , id get one or check you tube for demo video

on that pic you sent it is a bit differant, the bracket seems to be behind the swind arm and connected with the wheel so unless i take the wheel of... but the 2 black rubber things are n the caliper and both look like in the pic, these things they are holdind the caliper onto the bracket/frame i  unscrewed one and the caliper would slide over to the side
