Take tire off, make sure vehicle is secure so it won't fall on your head... Need a 7 mm hex tool, remove plastic caps on two bolts on back side of caliper. Loosen both bolts and slide caliper off. Need tool to squeese the caliper piston back to full seating to allow enough room for the new brake pads. Place new pads just the same way as old pads, note this before removing old pads. Slide caliper on and start bottom caliper bolt first, is tough to get threads started. Get underneath and look up to see bolt and threads, then start top bolt and tighten. Put on wheel and torque wheels per spec.... Be sure to check brake fluid level.....

The hood release lever on a 2000 Volkswagen Beetle is located to the left of the brake pedal, near the door. It resembles a handle which is pulled toward the rear of the vehicle to release.

It is located behind the airbox on the left side of the engine compartment. It is setting back behind the brake master cylinder on the firewall.
