replacing brake pads on dura ace

I am trying to replace the brake pads on my Dura Ace brakes. I am having difficulty trying to remove the existing pads. Any ideas how to easily remove them?

There is a setscrew holding the pad in place. It is an allen head bolt.

bfong - thanks for the info - i had removed the setscrew - i eventually used a pair of pliers to remove the old pads - not sure if this is the recommended method, but it worked - thanks again for your reply - jeff
