79 malibu front caliper removal help

someone school me on this one....how do i take em off?

-install a C-clamp on the caliper so that the solid side of the clamp rests against the back of the caliper and the screw end is against the metal part (backing plate) of the outboard pad. slowly tighten the clamp until the caliper moves enough to bottom the piston in its bore, then remove the clamp.

-remove the two allen-head caliper mounting bolts so that the caliper may be pulled off the disc.

Im stuck here. this is my first time doing this. how exactly do i remove the 2 allen head caliper mounting bolts. un tighten them as if i was any bolt?...thanks...
