Brake pad removal (another stupid question)

How do you remove the pin to get the front brake pads out? I want to replace the stock squealers with some Galfer green pads. I had no problem getting the rear done (Galfer black), but after pulling the clip from the guide pin on the front calipers I can't seem to get that pin to go anywhere.

It seems to me that if they made the rear so you didn't have to pull the caliper to do the pads, they would design the front the same way ...I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious. Of course, it's the one thing that isn't in any of the manuals.

Anyone? I'm all ears!

Thanks
