you will need a t-45(the manual advised and my car required a T-40) torx socket, a ratchet to fit, a slot screwdriver and a small amount of grease. 1- loosen lug nuts (don't remove) 2- jack up the car 3- place a safety stand (under sway bar knuckle is easy) 4- remove lug nuts and tire assembly 5- using a slot screwdriver pry between the inner pad and rotor (this will push the caliper piston in) 6- remove two caliper bolts with the torx socket(they are behind the caliper pointing toward you and are covered by a rubber sleeve) 7- slowly pry caliper straight out (note how pads are installed) 8- DO NOT LET THE CALIPER HANG BY HOSE!!!!!! 9- install new pads (note inner and outer are different) 10- put a small amount of grease on the caliper area that slides on the steering knuckle 11- if replacing the rotors too, slide off old rotor and slide on new rotor 12- slide caliper and pad assembly onto the rotor (sometimes you can put a lug nut on to hold the rotor straight) 13- tighten caliper bolts to 20ft.lbs (being the bolts are pointing toward you so make sure you are tightening and not loosening them) 14- reinstall you wheel and tire assembly
NOTE: always do brakes in sets not one side PUMP UP BRAKES BEFORE PUTTING THE VEHICLE IN GEAR listen for any noises on your test drive make a few light stops them let the pads cool for at least 30 minutes to seat the new pads
happy braking hope this helped x s f h p

Remove the wheel, the calipers and the rotors, reverse procedure with new rotors.
Tap on the rotors with a hammer, after removing the tire and wheel and the brake assembly. The rotors will come loose. Slide the rotors off and reverse the process.

The front rotors need to be pressed on, if you know someone with an industrial press you can do it yourself.
remove the brake caliper and the rotors come right off
if you are driving and you go to stop, then that means that the front rotors are warped. if the front rotors are bad, you will feel a pulsation in pedal while applying brakes. change rotors on front.
