Go by brand and model number. There should be something on the brake telling you that information.

Alternatively, take off one wheel and pull out one of the pads from the caliper. The pad has a tab on it that allows you to grab it. It shouldn’t take too much force to remove. The pad may have information stamped on it but if it doesn’t, take it to your local bike shop and ask them.

This video tells you how to remove the pad


This site will help you with pad selection.
