Default A8 D2 Front Brake Caliper Removal

How do you remove the front brake calliper on the A8 d2 2.8, this car has the large steel calliper and has 4 pads fitted to each calliper, on most audis I have owned I have just removed the slider bolts and its off, but I cant see a way to do it on this car, I need to remove it and check It out as I have a grinding noise, like something is catching, any help please. pretty sure its a lucas system

The Audi HP2 caliper is a little different to the smaller versions. There are two large bolts (21mm head iirc) which hold the caliper assembly to the hub and then the complete caliper and carrier comes off as one piece.
