First open the hood and remove the cap from the brake fluid reservoir. Then remove the front wheels. Now remove the two brake caliper mounting bolts, located behind the caliper, with 14mm socket and ratchet. Remove the caliper from the rotor and place it on top of the control arm. Slide out inner brake pad and outer brake pad. Lubricate back of new brake pads with muti-purpose grease. Reinstall new brake pads into the mounting bracket. Before the caliper is replaced, the pistons have to be depressed back into its "bore", or housing. This is done to make room for the new, thicker, brake pads. This can be done with a large C-clamp and an old brake pad. Place the caliper upside down on top of the control arm, place an old brake pad against the pistons, tighten with a C-clamp until the piston are fully depressed back into its "bore". Make sure the rubber around the pistons is evenly depressed. If it is not, tapping the brakes will bring the pistons back out. After the pistons are fully depressed, replace the caliper back on the rotor. Reinstall the two brake caliper mounting bolts. Replace the wheels. Replace cap on the brake fluid reservoir. Your done, step on the brake pedal a few times to bring the pads into contact with the disc.
