Need help replacing rear discs & pads on Impreza 1998

My rear brake discs and pads need replacing as they are at the end of their life.

I have removed one rear wheel and had a look for the bolts on the caliper that I need to remove but can only see the lower bolt, all I can find at the top is a round metal part with a rubber grommit inside, this is where I would expect the top bolt to be.

Can anybody tell me where I'm going wrong or the correct procedure I need to follow?

Thanks

I'm not sure about copyright issues, but if you goto www.scoobymods.com

Then under the modification forum goto Impreza GC8 (93-01) then Suspension, Brakes & Wheels, then the article is called Changing Your Brake Pads

Enjoy
