Best Answer

If your not used to working with antilock/traction control vehicles, you may want to leave this job to a professional. There are some things that you need to be aware of before proceeding with the job. But, if you decide to go on with this, You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

You will need: Jack, jackstands, various wrenches or socket set, new brake pads, c-clamp

I usually do one side at a time.

Jack the car up safely. Put the car on jackstands.

Take the wheel off.

Loosen the two caliper bolts.

Pull the caliper off, and remove the old pads.

Make sure you DONT let the caliper hang by the brake cable set it up behind the knuckle or get something to support it with.

Use a large C-clamp to push the piston back in.

Install the new pads on the caliper.

Put the caliper back on, tighten the bolts down.

Replace the wheel.

Move on to the other side. Repeat procedure.

Check brakes before going anywhere!
