I thought the snubber pad went under the base, what has removing the brake package got to do with that?

I thought it did to, but I have not even started taking it apart yet. I looked at the diagram and it looked like any easy tub pull, flip it upside down, uninstall, and install?

OK, I just flipped it on it's back and all you need is a flathead screwdriver to remove a little C-clip. You can see this in the picture I took. You also see the white plastic dust from the snubber disentigrating.

Ok, tub is out and I stand corrected. As you can see in the pics I took a special tool is required to remove the brake assembly because the snubber is sandwhiched beneath it. So much for an easy job.

Ok, just found this page with instructions for snubber replacement, and no expensive to is required, just longer screws for the housing.

The brake removal tool is better than 6 screws. But yeah I have heard of that screw method.
