Two bolts and they are off, you could do with a couple of dabs of locktite on each bolt when you put them back on.
A G clamp could be handy to push the piston back in if you don't have the proper tool.

Do I have to release any pressure to get the calipers to move?

Slacken the bleed valve to exit fluid there instead of forcing fluid back into abs unit / master cylinder.

Clamp the rubber flexible pipe as well while you do it, saves some fluid and bleeding time.
So where does this bit go then ?

More likely culprit is the wheel bearings !

I dont think so Brodfather11 when i press the brakes the noise stops.it only there sometimes.when coming to a stop the brakes screech.A while back one inside brake pad was wearing more than the outside one and they were noising alot.So a garage man freed them and they worked fine for couple months

Points to the pins sticking. Remove them and use a dab of moly grease on the sliding part of the pins. Probably need new pads too if they are scraping. If the pistons can be moved in with moderate pressure then they would OK.
