What kind of person creates a caliper that get stuck with the pads on the rotor and the bleeder on the rim. please help me and someone smack me if i am retarded in this case.

Take the caliper and pads off before trying to remove the wheel.

Here is how:

Un-bolt the caliper.
Gently twist it to spead the pads.
It should now wiggle out.
It is a bit tight what with the bleeder and all
Just take it slow and it will become clear..
