I have a 2001 Frontier and suspect they are similar. Jack up the front side you will work on 1st. Recommend placing a jack stand under the frame once jacked up for safety. Remove tire. Remove the disc brake pad housing by removing the 2 bolts holding it on (these are on the inside part of the wheel well). Ensure that the housing does not hang by the brake fluid hose as it will damage it, set the housing on top of the ball joint assembly if you need to set it down. Once off, the pads will slide out of the housing. Take and remove the brake fluid resevoiur cap (this allows the brake fluid in the system to flow back up through the system and into the resevoiur). Use wide pliars or C-clamps to depress the pistons in the pad housing back into the housing. This will cause brake fluid to overflow out of the resevoiur. Apply disc brake quiet (this reduces squeaking) between the new pads (side that does not touch the rotor) and shims. Allow to set about 10 minutes. Slide the new pads into position. Place housing back over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts. Replace tire and remove the jack stand and jack. Repeat on the other side. Once finished replace the resevoiur cap. Pads are self adjusting, just start the vehicle and depress the brake pedal a few times. You should be good to go

Great detailed answer! Just a couple hints to make it easier.

- if you do not top your brake fluid it will not overflow. if you do not have fluid leaks it is time to change pads if the "BRAKE" light comes on and stays on.

- if you only remove the bottom caliper bolt the unit will swing up for easy access and prevents possible damage to the brake line.
