This is a pretty easy brake job, once you realize how to deal with the top caliper bolt.

To start, set ebrake, jack and secure vehicle. Remove tire...

The caliper looks like most disc brake calipers at first. You use a metric 14mm socket to remove lower caliper bolt. The top "bolt" is not really a bolt at all. Its basically just a hole on the caliper that slides onto a shaft that is attached to the caliper bracket.

All you do is remove that lower bolt, the insert a screwdriver between the lower side of the caliper and the bracket and pry it up and out. The entire caliper will pivot up and then you push it towards the center of the vehicle and it will slide right off.

You simply remove the pads and use a C-clamp to compress the brake piston back to a fully open position and then insert new pads and reassemble.

*Note: You will want to remove the brake fluid cap before you compress the brake pistons on both sides. Then check fluids and secure the cap again when done. Your initial brake pedal step will go to the floor and then it will pump tight.

Do a test drive and you should be good to go...
