how do you get the brake caliper off?

I thought I was going to take the caliper and rotor off my 97 2WD today so I could regrease the bearings. I ran into some difficulty removing the caliper pin that is behind the brake hose connection to the caliper. Looking at the manual, it appears that you only have to remove the bottom caliper pin and then rotate it upwards!? Is this correct?

Thanks. I have never seen a swivel caliper like that before. I'm used to removing both caliper pins to get the caliper off. I didn't even need to pull the rotors off because the grease in the wheel bearings looked fresh.

I guess I'm just used to working on my motorcycles.
