Get the calipers back on the car, install the pad closest to you,  
squeeze the piston all the way back into the caliper (C-clamps are  
slow but work; LARGE channel-lock pliers are better) and slip the  
rotor on at an angle onto the hub, with the back end out.  You do  
this bringing the rotor from the front end of the car to the back,  
ie- over the installed pad.  Almost like putting a shoe on your  
foot.  Then, pop the "inboard" pad in, re-install the wire clip, and  
you're done.


It also helps to open the bleeder screw when trying to get the caliper piston to go back in. I've used a wood hammer handle to jsut push it in before.
