front brakes== jack wheel up, remove wheel and support the car on a jack stand,, remove the plastic screw caps off of the caliper and set aside,push the piston back with a c clamp there is a little window right in the middle of the outter pad to do so the other end of the c clamp can go on the back side of the caliper remove the Allen head screws that are inside of there, they are buried in ther a little but they are there , use a 7mm Allen head to remove the screws,, some may be 1/4 inch, tie the caliper out of the way with a bungee cord, then remove the caliper mounting bracket bolts, they are 14mm socket or wrench, i usually put the box end of a wrench on them and tap them loose with a heavy hammer , if you don't want to do that then use a breaker bar, remove bracket, if the rotors have those stupid retaining screws still on them you will have to heat them with a propane torch for a couple minutes each,, don't panic, they will come off stick the screwdriver in there and whack that with a hammer to that will ease removal aswell as the heat then yhoure not done yet, you didnt think the rotor was going to just fall off did ya? no no, you now have to whack the outter edge of the rotor with a sledge hammer, either side to you liking. then the rotor should come right off after a few whacks....installation is the reverse of removal

rear discs are very similar. but some the caliper and mounting bracket is and assembly, and the pads are held in with pins so to change the pads the caliper can stay on,. and you have to push the pitons back by wedging a screw driver in between the piston and pads,,,,, happy Kia
