Keep pulling the pad out until fully removed, repeat with the other side.

Use the degreaser to clean the holders. No sense putting it back together dirty.

The pads I bought did not have the notches cut in them to put in the retaining nut, so I had to cut them in. In this case, a good knife with a tanto point was important. Too bad Benchmade stopped making the Tanto Vex. I lined up the pads side by side and marked the new pads with lines where the notch would be cut.

Next I used a pair of dikes to cut the new pad along the lines down to the retaining groove.

I then used the knife to cut along the groove. This is where the tanto point helped out.

To be continued...
